What We Do

The Fruit and Vegetable Dispute Resolution Corporation (DRC) is a non-profit, membership-based organization serving the produce trade. DRC provides harmonized standards, procedures and services to our members to help them avoid commercial disputes. When differences of opinion occur, we provide consultation, mediation and arbitration services to resolve the issue in a timely and cost-effective manner.

DRC strives to educate members as to best practices in order to avoid disputes in the first place. The DRC dispute resolution model is designed to reduce risk and facilitate trade between members. DRC, when necessary, provides members with fast, fair and enforceable solutions to disputes arising in the course of member-to-member transactions.


DRC deals with all types of disputes including condition, contract and payment issues. DRC can help with disputes that arise between members domestically or internationally.

In order to be covered companies need to be members before the dispute arises. Don’t wait, protect yourself and become a DRC member now!
