Harvesting of the figs has commenced in Israel, and Avniv, one of the country's largest exporter of figs, have new varieties available for consumers.
“Avniv is exporting fresh figs to many countries and serving supermarket chains all around the world,” said Avniv's CEO, Niva Ben Zion. Her company enjoyed a 40 percent share of Israel's fig market, so they have the ability to ship their product all over the world. They currently ship loose and pre-packed 15 punnet boxes, and they're also introducing new fig varieties this season.
Avniv, an Israeli grower and exporter of fresh produce, will begin shipping grapes and figs this month. While both figs and grapes look good, this year's grape crop is of particular note.
"The grapes are amazing this season," said Niva Ben Zion, founder and CEO of Avniv. "We've had a nice yield, big berry, sweet and good quality, and lots of volume, too." According to Niva, Avniv could export up to 300 tons of grapes this year to Europe's larger markets like the UK, Netherlands and Russia. Because the first grapes of the season are of such good quality, she added that Avniv will pack them in ziplock bags for export. The bags, in turn, will be shipped in 4.5 kilogram boxes.
