Eurofresh Inc. has posted an additional $100,000 cash surety bond with the U.S. Department of Agriculture under the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act in order to maintain its license.

The Willcox, Ariz.-based company previously posted a $50,000 cash surety bond on Dec. 8, 2009, after bankruptcy, to obtain a PACA license. The USDA then raised the bond amount to $150,000 to reflect an increase in the company’s produce purchases in 2010.

The USDA will hold Eurofresh Inc.’s bond for three years or until Dec. 8, 2012 to provide assurance to the industry that the company can pay for produce purchases and operate according to PACA rules.
