Citrus Fruit Dealer Bond
What is a Citrus Fruit Dealer Bond?
Citrus fruit dealers in Florida are required to post a surety bond by The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The bond protects harmed parties in the event that citrus fruit dealers do not comply with Florida Statutes, Chapter 601. Among other requirements, dealers must honor contracts and practice proper accounting while conducting business. The amount of the bond varies based on the number of boxes sold or inspected. In order to get an accurate surety bond quote, dealers should confirm the bond amount needed with the Department prior to requesting a quote.
