Abstract

DeCoster Egg Farms of Turner ships around eight 40-foot-long container boxes full of eggs to Hong Kong every week. Each box holds around 25,000 dozen eggs, meaning roughly 9.6 million DeCoster eggs travel through Portland harbor each month. DeCoster shipments through Portland Harbor have increased in recent months from five boxes weekly to eight. David Hefler handles exports for DeCoster, and said sales are booming despite the boycott of the company imposed after the U.S. Department of Labor fined DeCoster for poor working and living conditions.
