Sales of locally manufactured food products have grown significantly over the past two years, which the Manufacturers Association of Israel called a testament to the quality of the products that local food manufacturers produce. A survey conducted by the Association revealed that 90% of those who purchase baby food buy Israeli-manufactured products, an increase of 10% above figures from two years ago, while 96% of the country's dairy consumers purchase locally produced products, up from 95% in 2005. Meanwhile, the percentage of Israelis who purchase blue-and-white manufactured alcoholic beverages has also increased over the last two years, as 76% of beer consumers buy local products, a rise of 7% above numbers from two years ago, while the number of Israelis who purchase locally produced wines rose from 81% in 2005 to 84%.
