JNS.org – Israel exported $48.5 million of wine and matzah in 2015, according to a report released ahead of the Passover holiday by the Israeli Finance and Industry Ministry.

The United States covered 57 percent of the $12 million worth of matzah imported from Israel worldwide ($6.84 million), while Europe imported $5 million worth of Israeli matzah, the ministry said Wednesday.

Israeli wine exports have steadily increased over the last five years — from $25 million in 2011 to $36.5 million in 2015 — partly due to financial investments in Israeli winemakers, the ministry said. One-third of last year’s global Israeli wine exports went to the U.S. and Canada. France imported the most Israeli wine of any European nation, $3 million, followed by the UK at $1.7 million. Other top Israeli wine importers from Europe included Germany, Belgium, and Italy.
