Overview

Our Story

United Exports was initially established as a fruit export business in 2002 by Roger Horak. Recognising the need for a consistently premium product, the United Exports CEO adapted the company to a vertically integrated model. This enabled us to be present in all facets of the production process, from planting to packaging to delivery.

With an initial focus on stone fruit – nectarines, peaches and the like – we quickly established ourselves as experts on low-chill genetics and production. This soon extended into new commodities, most notably our evergreen blueberry varieties created by world renowned plant breeders, Dave and Leasa Mazzardis.

Our Vision

The United Exports vision is to delight our clients – and the end consumers who consume the fruit – by providing a consistent product experience. We make this possible by ensuring we focus on quality, innovation and a sustainable approach to our business.
