Welcome to Great Lakes.
Great Lakes International Trading first opened its doors in Traverse City, Michigan, as a full service import & export company specializing in processed fruits, edible seeds, and shell nuts.
Great Lakes was built upon the fulfillment of special requests for difficult or unusual items and has continued to thrive on its success in doing so for over 25 years. Whatever your specialty fruit & nut needs, you can count on Great Lakes!

Great Lakes co-founded Food Rescue of Northwest Michigan.
Food Rescue re-distributes soon-to-be-expired perishable food products to food pantries in our area. The program also reduces waste to landfills and puts perfectly good perishable foods to use to feed the needy. Our first year we re-distributed 208,000 lbs of food. As of August 2013, 3,095,549 lbs have been rescued (1548 tons). Great Lakes is proud to be a part of such a great cause.
