According to a published news report in the LA Times, Market Basket’s store shelves and produce bins remain bare as a controversial months-long dispute continues between management and employees. Western Growers Trade Practices Department has interacted with concerned shippers about the timing of past due accounts payable receipts as well as how to handle loads purchased and delivered to Market Basket or loads that were diverted because there were no Market Basket employees to unload the produce.
Shippers are encouraged to contact Western Growers Trade Practices Director Tom Oliveri at 949 885-2269 to make certain that you are properly maintaining your rights and remedies under PACA should that become a required course of action.
