US (ID): Taylor Produce cited for PACA Violations

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has cited Taylor Produce LLC in Rigby, Idaho, for failure to pay for produce.

The company failed to pay $3,943,926 to 5 sellers for 605,492 net hundredweight of potatoes which was purchased, received, and accepted in interstate commerce from June 2013 through December 2013. This is in violation of the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA). As a result of these actions, Taylor Produce LLC cannot operate in the produce industry until Oct. 30, 2017, at which time they may reapply for a PACA license.

The company’s principals, Alan L. Taylor and Alan Taylor Produce, may not be employed by or affiliated with any PACA licensee until Oct. 30, 2016, and then only with the posting of a USDA-approved surety bond.
