This rise in Israeli food exports to the U.S. resulted from a “more aggressive marketing strategy at all levels by the Israeli manufacturers and their US representatives,” sources told Kosher Today.

Eleven Israeli manufactures will participate in the Israeli pavilion of the Fancy Food Show June 30 to July 2 in New York City. One major retailer told Kosher Today that Israeli food is becoming more popular because of its “vastly improved quality and packaging.”
