Better Produce, Inc. Case Settlement
Better Produce, Inc. Case Settles for $3,250
Better Produce, Inc. will pay $3,250.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $3,250.00 will go to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality. This settlement was reached in September, 2017.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Better Produce, Inc. failed to verify that each hired or dispatched vehicle was in compliance with the Truck and Bus (TB) regulation and to comply with the record keeping requirements. Two of those fleets were determined to be out of compliance with the TB regulation. To settle the case, Better Produce, Inc. agreed to the $3,250.00 penalty and to comply with TB and other ARB programs.
