New York…The Israel Export Institute, an exhibitor at Kosherfest for most of the show’s 31-year history will be absent this year as travel and participating in such events is still off limits in Israel. Anat Katz, Israel’s Trade Commissioner in New York and Jennifer Kim, who handles food for the Trade Mission, assures everyone that Israel is very much committed to the show. Of course, the large importers of Israeli products like Kayco will represent the many products they import. Shelley Anne Ltd will be showcasing several Israeli companies, including Ariel Bakery, Churros Original, Saba Habib Olive Oil, and Tamara. The importers say that they will be representing the Israeli food and wine companies at the show.
