Over 80% of Israeli strawberry production will be covered by the Ecofresh certification carrying the producer's name. The system was developed by Agrexco as a strategy to reduce pesticides and improve handling. As exports begin, estimates point to a substantial increase in the total crop from 800t to 1,200t. The main varieties are Tamar and Yael, and will initially be packed in 250g punnets, then switching to 400g. The UK will also be the sole recipient of a mini strawberry range. {{FRESH PRODUCE }}
