Hey Guys!
I am new to this whole forum posting thing, so bear with me. I am a student at Ohio State and am doing a research project on food production and transport lines. We are set with the task of researching the history of one specific food item (tomato, chickpeas, etc. etc) and detailing how it gets from the place it was produced to Columbus Ohio.

Since I was born in Israel and have family over there I was curious what major foods are grown and produced in Israel that are consumed by Americans. Any help would be great. Thanks a ton

Best,
Gideon

In NYC, you get many Israeli food products made by Osem (soups, baked goods, etc.) & Elite (coffee, cake, etc). I have bought Beit Ha****a pickles, Tnuva dairy products (cheese & yogurt), etc.

Not much that I know about. In the Mediterranean store here we get stuff from Greece, Turkey, the Balkans, and such, but I haven't seen much more towards the middle eastern region.

What with shipping costs, and California having a similar climate for farming, it does not make much economic sense to produce food in Israel and ship it to the US.

You get a few botique items, of course, but I don't think much of that goes to Columbus, OH.

I think most of the Israeli products that are shipped to the USA are to areas that have large Israeli expatriates communities such as NYC and Los Angeles.
