The Taste Of Dates
Agrifood Marketing Ltd., a leading boutique exporter of Israeli fine Dates, was established in 2004 by Avi Dagul, formerly a manager at Agrexco. Using his vast expertise in the export of dates such as Medjool/Medjoul, Hayani, Deglet Nour and Barhi, he managed to place the company at the forefront of Israel’s date export companies, with a mission to bring this wonderful and exotic desert fruit to any destination in the world.
From planting and growing, to harvesting, packing and shipping, Agrifood offers a large variety of services and a wide range of all-year-round available products. Our products are marketed under the brand name “Star Dates,” with 80% exported and 20% sold to the Israeli market.
At Agrifood we stand proudly behind the quality of our produce, our logistics system and our loyal and personal approach. Our dynamic company and personnel with their four decades of experience and know-how can provide reliable, efficient, successful and long-term service. The company’s quality assurance system is among the strictest in the world, covering all stages of the process, from planting and growing, through sorting, to packing and delivery. This careful supervision ensures that the company’s produce, as well as its facilities, meet the highest health, safety, quality and environmental standards in the industry.
Agrifood has the ability to grow dates and pack them at its own facilities – all under meticulous quality restrictions. Thus, the company maintains complete control over the quality and quantity of produce, enabling it to meet its customers’ strictest requirements and tight schedules. Our company and produce are marketed as Global Gap, Smeta, BRC and organic accredited.
The warmth of the desert sun in Israel and its perfect climate means that Israeli date farms produce the best Medjool/Medjoul dates in the world. We do our utmost to maintain quality throughout the process to our clients’ doors, so they can enjoy the same taste of the fruit as the farmer does while harvesting.
Health and sports revolution – in the last 5 years the world has changed, the health trend has become popular everywhere and with everyone. Here our dates come in handy – highly nutritious and extremely tasty, low in calories yet rich in fiber, and an edible delight providing an energy boost for children and adults alike. For those in the fast lane as well as those who prefer to take it easy, Medjool/Medjoul dates are an inseparable part of our lives.
Fruit Logistica is the perfect platform to exhibit our products, see our clients and meet new friends. This year we plan to dedicate our show and exhibition to some of our special products such as the Bonbon dates – a special Medjool/Medjoul date harvested two – three weeks before the regular Medjool and not sundried, making this fruit a special item which is also famous for its juiciness and extra-large size.
We also plan to provide a special platform for our Organic Medjool/Medjoul dates, which are seeing growing demand, especially in Europe. Our Organic Medjools are unique in their cultivation process, in which the pesticides and fertilizers used are chemical-free. Though organic dates are more delicate than non-organic dates, their quality is equally high and they remain sweet, succulent and nutritious.
We invite you to meet us, taste our dates, and discover new opportunities.
