We are a broker/shipper based in Gresham, Oregon. Our company is owned and operated by 4th and 5th generation Oregonians. But for us, the trail never stopped in Oregon. We have offices and partnerships in several countries and the state of Hawaii.


Export International’s roots go straight to the farm. Our forefathers and foremothers worked the land as cattle ranchers, farmers and business owners. Our family began selling onions grown by other Willamette Valley farmers. Originally, we focused only on onions in Oregon and Washington.

In the mid 80s, the family business acquired a packing shed in Brooks, Oregon. There, the company (then called Triple Crown Produce) packed onions, fresh broccoli and corn. Eventually, the operation expanded to other countries that included Mexico, China and Japan. Several members of the Aker family lived in China for seven years as our company established its Asian partnerships.


Export International has a global presence. We trade throughout the United States and with countries all over the world. We move millions of pounds of clean, quality produce each year. To do it, our staff spends countless hours visiting our suppliers and customers wherever they call home.

We’re also in tune with changing consumer demands and evolving farming/packing practices. We all benefit from Earth friendly operations. That’s why Export International is proud of its partnerships with sustainable and organic growing operations.
