The leading destination markets abroad for the peanuts are Germany and Italy.
Exports of peanuts from kibbutzim in the Ma'on region of the western Negev are expected to total 7,800 tons by the end of the year, 10 percent more than in 2005, Mifalei Hevel Ma'on said Wednesday, adding that the kibbutzim are expected to have earned "tens of millions of shekels" from the crop. The leading destination markets abroad for the peanuts are Germany and Italy. The success of peanut sales abroad is a good example of the advantage in concentrating agricultural exports "under one roof," said Mifalei Hevel Ma'on CEO Heshi Rubin. "If Israeli peanut exporters were to fight each other in the European markets, that would cause economic damage to all of them, as happens in some other agricultural sectors," he added.
