Companies from Serbia, producers of fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, during a four-day working visit to Israel, held a large number of meetings and b2b meetings with Israeli importers and distributors, while also visiting some of the leading Israeli retail chains with a goal to explore possibilities of exporting to this prospective market and finding new partners.
The visit was organized by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia and the representative office of CCIS in Israel, as this country represents an attractive market for Serbian producers, especially those of frozen fruits, vegetables, apples, jams, juices, but also prunes and all-natural products without gluten, additives and added sugar, such as cold-pressed juices, granola, butter, natural milk.
The Government of Israel, with the aim of increasing competition and reducing the cost of living, is increasing import quotas and gradually canceling customs restrictions on the import of these products, which opens up great opportunities for companies from Serbia.For export to the Israeli market, possession of a Kosher certificate issued by the certifying rabbinate is also required.
Our businessmen and CCIS representatives spoke with the management of leading Israeli importers, including Paskovich Co, Green Filed Foods Co, A.S.K. Anshel Marketing Ltd, Tomer Ltd, Lev's Co, Lord Sandwich, and others, as well as with representatives of retail chains Yochananof, Shufersal, Rami Levy, Osher Ad.
