Israel Dairy Delicacies Profile


A Mediterranean Dairy Industry

Israel’s amazingly extensive array of dairy products is enjoyed the world over. Crafted by food experts well versed in the traditional methods of other famous dairy producing countries, they suit the palate of a wide range of food connoisseurs and chefs.
With two farming systems – Kibbutz and Moshav cooperatives – the nation’s 50 dairies (large and boutique) are supplied with the dairy they need to create a rainbow of Mediterranean dairy delicacies. Israel’s famous breed of the Holstein cow is the primary source for its delicious milk products.
Dairy farmers also raise goats and sheep in order to enhance their range of specialty foods. Strict Quality Control procedures are followed during every step of the manufacturing process, guaranteeing that Israeli milk products meet stringent international standards.

A Palate for High Quality, Gourmet Milk Products

Dairy goods play an important role on the Israeli menu. With a nation that eats two milk-based meals a day – including the famous Israeli breakfast (known for its veritable feast of soft, spreadable, creamy white cheeses, hard and semi-firm cheeses and deliciously flavored yogurts) – food manufacturers continually create innovative products to satisfy one of the world’s most discerning dairy palates. Consequently, new items constantly hit the shelves of the country’s supermarket chains and grocery stores.
