The Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute revealed that the U.S. received a record of $224 million worth of Israeli food and beverage exports in 2002, representing a 3-percent increase since 2011 and a 50-percent increase since 2008.

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 KosherToday.

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 KosherToday that Israeli food is becoming more popular because of its “vastly improved quality and packaging.”
