Tomato Suspension Agreement History

When a trader is involved in the sale, the place of delivery indicated in the contract is the place where the inspection is to take place. If the distributor does not indicate the delivery destination, the standard delivery destination is the sales agent`s warehouse. For many tomatoes owned or under the control of a distributor, it is the distributor`s responsibility to require a timely inspection of the tomatoes in its possession if it deems it necessary. If the distributor does not request a timely inspection (i.e. within eight hours of arrival at the distributor`s destination) and sells the tomatoes to a third party requesting an inspection, the distributor is responsible for all costs and adaptations related to the control and condition or quality of the tomatoes.
