Some retail and food service customers may require Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) invoicing and reconciliations of settlements to automate the purchase order process.  EDI is simply a standard electronic format that replaces paper-based documents such as purchase orders or invoices. When invoicing via EDI, it is critical that you have the PACA Trust language on your transmission to preserve PACA Trust protection.
