Galilee Export was established in 2011 by farmers with a working history of 50 years under the auspices of the parent umbrella organization – Milouot cooperation. In light of changes which took place that year in the Israeli agriculture export structure, the Milouot growers decided to establish their own export company to market their fresh agricultural products (the western north part of the country) all over the world. As Galilee Export’s “growers’ organization” business structure meets the global trend of direct commercial connections between growers and the markets, it creates a mutual advantage for both customers and growers who see their vision come true.
The farmers at Galilee Export grow various agricultural crops such as Avocado, Persimmon (Sharon Fruit), Carrot, Grapefruit and easy peelers, Sweet Potato, Litchi / Lychee, Mango, Grapes, Pepper, Pomegranate and Medjool Date. Galilee Export owns one of the biggest packing houses in Israel for Avocado, Citrus, Litchi and other fruits. The packing house handles over 30,000 tons of fruit per year. About 70% of the production is for export, mainly to Europe. The agricultural products export company and packing house have been granted mandatory quality standards certifications and respectively comply with the required standards in various markets throughout Europe and Worldwide.
Galilee Export has attracted and recruited managers and sales marketing personnel, all highly skilled with many years of experience in both marketing and selling fresh agricultural produce, dealing with export markets in Europe, Russia, Japan, the United States and other countries. The company’s minimum sales turnover forecast for 2012, the first year of operation, is $70 million, with an estimated 10% percent incremental growth YoY (year over year),with all products marketed under the Galilee Export brand label.
