When a buyer is entitled to keep product but is unwilling to renegotiate the original sales price with you on a shipment that has “failed to meet contract specifications at contract destination," how do you determine what the adjusted price should be? What if there is no meeting of the minds on an equitable settlement or adjustment? If you are unable to agree on amending the original contract, the next step is calculating provable damages.

Cornell University is conducting a research study titled “Modeling and Training to Enhance Resilience of the U.S. Food System to COVID-19 Labor Shortages,” to assess the most urgent needs of the food industry with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of the study, Cornell is encouraging participation in an anonymous 30-minute survey to help identify the best COVID-19 control strategies and develop training materials. Participants may choose to answer all or portions of this survey.
