SunFruit Distributing Company Settles Reparation Award


WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that Sunfruit Distributing Co., operating in Los Angeles, Calif., has settled a reparation award issued under the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA). USDA ordered payment of the award on April 26, 2005, in favor of a California seller. The award was paid on Feb. 15, 2007.

Sunfruit Distributing Co.ís sole proprietor, Robert G. Park, may now be employed by or affiliated with any PACA licensee.

PACA provides for damages to be paid by those not meeting their contractual obligations in buying and selling fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables. Interstate traders operating as commission merchants, dealers or brokers, and conducting a sufficient volume of business must be USDA-licensed.

PACA requires USDA to suspend the license of a business that fails to pay reparations awarded against it.
