Output Contract

In the law of sales, an agreement in which one party assents to sell his or her total production to another party, who agrees to purchase it.

This type of contract does not entail an illusory promise, a purported agreement that actually means nothing because it leaves to one party the choice of performance or nonperformance, even if the quantity of goods that are the subject of the contract is indefinite. It is also known as an entire output contract, and it is subject to the UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE, a body of law adopted by the states that governs commercial transactions.
