United Fresh Produce Association will host a web seminar on proposed changes to PACA Trust provisions.

United Fresh to host PACA Trust seminar

Washington, D.C.-based United Fresh will conduct the free seminar Aug. 18 from 2 to 3 p.m. eastern time, according to an association news release.

On June 8, the U.S. Department of Agriculture published a proposed rule on changes to PACA Trust provisions. The changes address post-default agreements on trust protection eligibility, the subject of recent court decisions.

In response to the proposed rule, United Fresh created a PACA Trust Working Group to weigh in on the issue. The group has asked USDA for an extension to the comment period before the rule becomes final.

To access the seminar, go here, then call (866) 779-0773 and request meeting #3033409.
