Cite as: Cal. Food & Agric. Code §40901.
The failure of a processor willfully and without due cause to furnish raw product containers to a producer as agreed upon, or any willful discrimination against any producer in this regard, shall subject such processor to an action for all damages which are sustained by the producer as a direct result of the failure or discrimination, and judgment against any processor may be entered in the discretion of the court either for the amount of the damages sustained or for three times the amount. Treble damages may, however, only be awarded if the producer has furnished the processor written notice of the claimed failure or discrimination within 48 hours after the claimed failure or discrimination.
