Israel: {יִשְׂרָאֵל‬ | إِسْرَائِيل}

Israel, with a thriving agrifood industry, is in the lead of agricultural development and research

Innovation as a fundamental pillar for their agrifood sector

Popular for a growing, high-tech agrifood industry, Israel is a leading exporter of fresh produce and agricultural technologies. Besides, their growing health interest has driven them to develop organic, sugar free and meatless foods.

Room for Improvement

More than half of the country’s area is desert, the weather is extremely dry and the water scarcity does not encourage crops or farming. Israel has therefore felt the need to focus on increasing crop quality and irrigation. Therefore, EIT Food can introduce them as a benchmark for Southern European countries with similar issues, while building a bridge for them to work closely with the EU in agrifood projects.

Israeli has invested in drip and micro-irrigation solutions and has created self-cleaning models that maintain uniform flow rate regardless of water quality and pressure.
