Perfect conditions for Gaza strawberry season

Arava Export Growers, a supplier of fruit, vegetables and fresh herbs based in Israel, recently announced its intentions to market and export Strawberries from the Gaza Strip to Europe. 



All growers are Global Gap certified and all MRL protocols comply with EU standards. To ensure that this compliance is optimized, Arava is planning a seminar in two weeks’ time with growers to address any quality/sorting challenges that may occur.

The success of a strawberry season is dependable on two factors, such as the varieties used and climatic conditions. The company will supply the Barak and Tamar varieties, both are oval in shape, with a high brix level, and resilient to fungi. The strawberries will be offered in 2.5kg boxes of 10- 250gr closed lid black punnets. The strawberries are transported by air, with 160 boxes on a 2.4 M pallet.

Strawberry prices are unknown as the season has not yet started, but they will be determined weekly, based on market conditions.

The season is expected to run from 25 November through the end of January. On the back of good weather conditions and an offering of good quality varieties, the company is anticipating a fruitful season ahead and expects to be have sufficient volumes through the season with approximately one truck a day.
