Have you ever notice amount of produce of most fruits and vegetables. Even when are out of season? Local supermarkets produce sections are filled with fresh produce throughout the year, but these produce items are not always American grown but imported by definition Produce are agricultural products such as fruits and vegetables distinguished from grain and other staple crops (Webster). This definition makes the produce section a big business. The produce importing business can offer a lot of benefits to America, but can be tricky. This description of what produce importing business relates almost exactly with the biography of Sam Zemurray in Richard Cohen’s book The Fish That Eat the Whale.

Now today even though the system is not quite the same. Companies that use produce imports still need transporters like the person that drive the train. Not only for brining the produce in to America, but also to ship them to stores. Another job similarity is the college men jobs now which are now known as The United States Department of Agriculture. These workers do not bark at the checkers and make sure the food is safe, but not directly usually. The USDA they set up standards for the companies who use produce imports.
