North State almond exporter pleased as port dispute ends

Feb 24, 2015 8:18 PM

Ports along the west coast are starting to move again in wake of an agreement between employers and dock workers. Farmers International in North Chico is slowly starting to send out more shipments as the ports reopen. The company exports almonds to over 60 different countries around the world. Although the ports are in operation, the owner says it still may take a month or two before things are operating like normal.

"I think it is going to take some time at the port itself to clear the congestion so that is going to be our bottleneck for the next few weeks." says Mohnish Seth from Farmers International.

Farmers International is back in full operation after being forced to cut hours due to the dispute. Seth says he is happy the nearly long negotiations are finally over so he can get his shipments out on time.
