Israeli Food Industry
Continues Its Growth

By ROBERT KAPLAN

Israel Digest

JERUSALEM — The food
industry accounts for one-
fifth of Israel's total exports.
But the fact that it has in-
creased its export figure by
20 percent annually since
1955 is even more signific-
ant.
While a country needs
heavy industry in order to
become wealthy, it must
first have a sound agricul-
tural base to build on. And a
thriving food industry is an
indicator of a fully-matured
agricultural sector.
The history of Israeli ag-
riculture is well-known,
especially the development
of kibutzim and moshavim
which struck roots in the
early 20th Century. The
success of the communal
farm movement was
supplemented by the con-
struction of factories to pro-
duce such things -as soups
and sauces from the vegeta-
bles grown in the fields.
Since the roots of this sec-
tor, which accounted for
$190 million in exports in
1977, go back to the com-
munal farm movement,
today one-third of the exist-
ing factories are owned and
operated by kibutzim and
moshavim.
The food industry in Is-
rael is making many inno-
vations. For instance, palm
oil can be used as salad oil.
, But the conversion is a com-
plicated, expensive process,
which led to the establish-
ment of Palm Oil Industries
Ltd. in Eilat. The Israeli
technological innovation
will extract edible oil from
the palm, and create a byp-
roduct that can be used in
soaps and cosmetics.
Like other industrialized
nations, Israel also pro-
duces processed foods. One
Israeli firm is now market-
ing freeze-dried vegetables
which are ready to eat after
cooking in boiling water for
one minute.
The new technique is de-
signed for instant soup
powders, reducing the cook-
ing time from the usual five
minutes to 60 seconds.
The Jaffora firm of Re-
hovot has created an artifi-
cial sweetener that isn't re-
*

ally artificial, because it is
extracted from a substance
that exists in grapefruit
peels. The U.S. Food and
Drug Administration has
already approved the pro-
duct for use in toothpaste
and chewing gum. This
sweetener is 1,500 times
sweeter than sugar and
three-to-four times sweeter
than saccharin.
The Technion in Haifa
has become Israel's center
for food industry ex-
perimentation, and has re-
cently opened a research
facility that is part of the
school's Department of
Food Engineering and

Biotechnology.

Because the food industry
is an offshoot of the agricul-
tural sector, changes in the
former will sooner or later
affect the latter. By 1980, an
assortment of vegetables
such as cabbage and
cucumbers will edge out cit-
rus as the nation's number
one produce item. Thus
more types of products de-
rived from vegetables
should be expected from the
food industry in the future.
Israel has been called
Europe's "hot house." About
two-thirds of the country's
food exports go to the nine
members of the European
Economic Community,
mostly in the winter months
when cold weather makes
fruit and vegetable produc-
tion impossible there. The
remainder is made up of ex-
ports to North America.
It is no accident that the
industrialized West ac-
counts for almost all of Is-
rael's food purchases. Many
of these products are canned;
and packaged, and only
people in affluent societies
can afford them.
This is especially true
with frozen and processed
foods, which make up 20
percent of all Israeli food
exports.
These market restrictions
have put a brake on rapid
development in the food in-
dustry. Israel's resources
may be unlimited concern-
ing food production, but the
foreign market is not.
Meanwhile, the Israeli
food industry exported $220
million in 1978, a 25 percent
increase over 1977.
