Import Program


Apples and Cherries from Chile

For the past several years, CMI has partnered with Unifrutti to provide year-round availability of top-quality apples and cherries.

CMI is the exclusive importer of Unifrutti apples and cherries into the US. We take pride in selling Unifrutti products because they pack to the same stringent grade standards as CMI, allowing us to provide consistent quality for our most popular fruit varieties.

CMI imported 30% of all Chilean apples last year, offering bicoastal distribution from our group of Central Washington warehouses and Rice Fruit in Pennsylvania.

Apples and cherries are our business. Decades of experience allow us to ensure quality every step of the way, from Unifrutti's orchards to your produce department.

We offer a large selection of Chilean fruits including:

- Red Cherries
- Rainiers
- Gala
- Granny Smith
- Fuji
- Braeburn
- Pink Lady
