Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA)

The law requires that everyone must have a PACA license to operate a produce business. A PACA license protects those businesses by establishing and enforcing a code of fair business practices and by helping companies resolve business disputes. A PACA license is proof to your customers and suppliers that you are a serious business person who can be trusted to honor the terms of your contracts. To learn more, visit www.ams.usda.gov/PACA or call the toll-free number at (800) 495-7222.
