About Us

Summit Procurement was established in July, 1993 in Yakima, Washington by Jim and Sue McCorkindale. Initially the company was started to procure fruits for Jim's domestic customers. In recent years, our processor sales department has become a larger part of our business.

Summit Procurement buys, sells, and inspects basically every variety of apples grown in the Pacific Northwest. Summit actively works with over 100 shippers in Washington, Idaho, and Oregon.  We know our products and the people who pack them. We service all areas of the U.S. and Canada with orders ranging from partial truck loads to full loads and railcars.

Jim McCorkindale, Owner/Manager

Jim was raised on a family apple orchard in the Naches Heights area eight miles West of Yakima.  He still lives on a small acreage of organic Red Delicious at that site. In June of 2016 he celebrated 31 years of selling the "greatest apples on earth."
