An initiative of



Hi, my name is Gilad and together with a great team, we grow organic Medjool dates, bell peppers, chili peppers, mangos and tomatoes for Nature & More here in Israel. 


Agrofresh Pro Ltd was set up in 2002 in order to help top class organic farmers to continuously to develop themselves as well as finding a market for their products.  Today we work closely with ten passionate growers.

Coming from Israel I am often asked about my point of view regarding the political situation here.  For me we are all the same, we all want the best for our children, to live in peace and to be healthy. The massive majority in this region whether from Israel or Palestine do not want war and conflict. The war is created by people who take their religion too seriously.  There are so many places here in Israel where we live in harmony with each other.. This makes me optimistic as we are showing that it is possible.

Interview with Gilad

Why did you choose to get involved in agriculture ?
What I love about this sector is that it is so diverse, taking care of the soil, having the right seeds, ensuring proper irrigation, packing, shipping etc.  During my travels around the world, when I was younger, I learned to appreciate the beauty of nature and the importance of biodiversity and this is also something I find very appealing about farming.

Why did you choose to “go organic”? 
What I learned from working in a Kibbutz is that community, ideology and collaboration is more important than just money.  Of course organic agriculture is also about making money but there is so much more involved. The positive impact that this type of farming has on the environment and the communities is something that I find very appealing.

What makes the Date is special?
The Date is a versatile fruit that is not only loved for its remarkably sweet taste but also for its health benefits. Dates contain many minerals, vitamins and important trace elements.  The benefits of dates are numerous for people young and old. It is truly a magical super fruit.
