The mission of the HMPC Program is to protect and assist producers or produce dealers who do not receive payment for produce sold or handled in Texas.

on credit and you do not pay for it at time of delivery, you will need to be licensed.
Exceptions - HMPC licenses are not needed by:
- Consumers who do not resell produce
- Growers who grow and sell their own produce
- People who grow produce outside of Texas
