Tom Oliveri, Director of Trade Practices and Commodity Services, Western Growers Association, is an expert on all things related to PACA guidance, product arrival issues, product guarantees, collection on slow pay and disputed contracts and so much more.
Recently in his blog, Straight from Tommy O, Mr. Oliveri wrote about the importance of DRC membership and the invaluable services we offer:
Do you Ship to Canada: If the answer is “Yes”, then you and your customer definitely need to be members of the Fruit and Vegetable Dispute and Resolution Corporation (DRC). If you should ever encounter a dispute with one of your customers in Canada, aside from taking expensive legal action, the only remedy for effectively, economically and quickly resolving a contract dispute is to submit the matter to the DRC for handling.
