We lead the peanut market in Israel, and receive each year at our plant in Be'er Sheva about 14,000 tons of unshelled peanuts (about 60%-70% of the peanuts grown in Israel each year). We export to Europe premium peanuts representing more than 60% of the net quantity received at our plant each year, and more than 80% of the quantity of peanuts that Israel exports to overseas markets. Our main peanut export target markets are Western European countries, primarily: Italy, Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
We believe in the management and control of the entire value chain, and accordingly we operate a date packing and sorting facility that is located in the heart of the growing area and that is a leader in its field, using the best available technology. This institute conforms to the highest standards demanded by the company’s customers in Israel and overseas and involves careful quality and implementation of the strictest standards in the market, at the highest level.
We have been operating in the almonds field since 2000 and receive at our plants in northern and southern Israel about 5,000 tons of unshelled almonds each year, constituting more than 20% of the almonds grown each year in plantations in Israel. We provide growers shelling, peeling, sorting and marketing services.
Almonds are domestic market oriented, but in recent years we have been able to increase the quantities of almonds that we export to overseas markets.
We are in a strategic region near the Mediterranean Sea, which allows us to send fresh, high quality goods to various markets worldwide by air and by sea every week. Most of our products are shipped by sea, using leading global shipping companies, which ship our products in 20 or 40 foot containers, dry or refrigerated (minus 18 degrees), according to customer needs.
