An Introduction to PACA – In Spanish
The Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA) was enacted at the request of the fruit and vegetable industry to promote fair trade in the industry.

Romero is the Regional Director in the Western Regional PACA office in Tucson, Arizona. He has been with PACA for 23 years. He has conducted numerous outreach seminars to growers and shippers from the United States, Mexico, Costa Rica and Guatemala.
