LAS VEGAS ​– Inc. magazine ranked Terra Exports NO. 923 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. It is notable that Terra Exports is the only fresh fruit company in the fruit trade industry to appear on this year’s list.

Terra Exports ranked #4 on the list of top Inc. 5000 companies based in Nevada. This was due to the company’s significant rowth rate of 476% since being founded in 2012, and revenues in 2016 at $23.9 million.

What’s notable about this story is the potential in the fruit trading space for new companies to emerge, innovate, and find success. Many millennials are leaning towards the glamour of careers in technology, but Terra Exports is an example that proves the opportunity for success within other industries. Terra Exports proves the industry’s potential as they are noted for being the first company in the world to bring Kenya avocados into Hong Kong, Canadian cherries into Mauritius, and Pakistani mandarins into Vietnam. The company plans to continue on this trajectory as they explore introductions for new produce in different markets worldwide.

When asked about making this year’s Inc. 5000, Nils Goldschmidt, President of Terra Exports stated: “Inc. 5000 is a big milestone for us as it marks a before and after in the history of our company. It's no longer Terra Exports the "disruptive young up and comer" but rather Terra the innovative global player in fresh produce. I started the company with the vision of “think globally, act globally,” and today the Inc. 5000 achievement has made this vision a reality.”

The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
