Ohio company satisfies PACA violations

In a complaint filed on March 16, 2020, the U.S. Department of Agriculture alleged that Enson Group LLC, doing business as Eternal Food Service (Enson Group), Cincinnati, Ohio, failed to make full payment promptly in the total amount of $707,592 to 12 sellers for multiple lots of produce in violation of the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act. In this case, Enson Group paid sellers for produce, but not promptly pursuant to the PACA.

After the complaint was filed, USDA and Enson Group entered into a Consent Decision and Order in which Enson Group agreed to pay a civil penalty in the amount of $6,500 for making untimely payments to sellers for produce purchases. As a result of Enson Group satisfying the terms of the consent decision and order, the finding that it had committed repeated and flagrant PACA violations was permanently abated without further process and the case has been closed.
