United States Department of Agriculture Files Action Against Fresh Florida Products in Florida for Alleged PACA Violations



WASHINGTON, DC - Today, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced it has filed an administrative complaint against Fresh Florida Products for alleged violations of the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA).

The complaint comes after the Florida-based company allegedly failed to make prompt payment to eight produce sellers in the amount of $390,603 between May 2021 and February 2022, a release explained.

Direct from the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service:

Fresh Florida Products will have an opportunity to request a hearing. Should USDA find that the company committed repeated and flagrant violations, it would be barred from the produce industry as a licensee for three years, or two years with the posting of a USDA-approved surety bond. Furthermore, its principals could not be employed by or affiliated with any PACA licensee for two years, or one year with the posting of a USDA-approved surety bond.
