Israel purchases more dried fruit

This article was originally published in Foodnews

ISRAEL will spend ILS200 million (USD53 million) on dried fruit for Jewish holiday Tu Bishvat, according to the agricultural branch of the Federation of Israeli Chambers of Commerce (FICC). Jennifer Willis-Jones writes: Some 75% of all Israeli households are expected to purchase dates, apricot, prunes, figs and raisins. “This year, 3-4% growth is expected in dried fruit in Israeli households,” says Reuven Shlisil, who heads the FICC’s agricultural branch. However, the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Labour worries that some people will be overpaying for dried fruits. Tamar Pinkus asked consumers “to pay attention to what you’re supposed to pay for your purchase”.
