Buy Fine Foods from Israel
October 9, 2002
In recent months, the American Jewish community
demonstrated great interest in purchasing Israeli products. In response to
this significant grassroots demand, the Conference of Presidents has
partnered with the Israel Economic Mission in North America, the Israel
Export Institute and others to launch a major promotion of Israeli goods,
beginning with Fine Foods from Israel. The “Buy Israel” campaign is
intended to help identify products exported by Israel, increase their
availability and accessibility in the American market, and help them be
The immediate goal is to create a nationwide web-based
consumer guide for the retail consumer. The web site will help American
shoppers identify local supermarkets and grocery stores that sell Israeli
foods. Hundreds of stores already are included in the database, but we
need your assistance.
Tell us about stores in your area that sell Israeli
foods. Please e-mail the name and full address of each store to Lily
Zagorsky at the Israel Economic Mission, at
firstname.lastname@example.org. These stores
will be included in the “Buy Israel” campaign.
Fine Foods from Israel is being launched with the
participation of more than 30 food producers, and the program soon will be
expanded to include an array of goods made in Israel. Products from Israel
meet the highest quality standards and often have unique features or
designs. Many of these products easily can be included in regular
shopping, while others are great for gifts or other occasional use.
The current violence has precipitated severe economic
strain. The American Jewish community understands that Israel must be
strong not only politically and militarily, but also economically.
Collectively, we can increase the purchase of Israeli products and have a
broad and significant impact on the Israeli economy and Israeli people.
Help make the Fine Foods from Israel campaign a great
success! Please circulate this information widely.
