For First Time Ever: Gaza Farmers Export Spices

We are happy to announce that after a long period of time in which exports from Gaza included agricultural goods such as strawbarries, tomatoes, peppers and flowers, Gaza farmers are now exporting spices.

Gazan Farmers were given tutorials on how to grow spices and seedlings were provided by Israel. Yesterday, the spices were finally exported through the Kerem Shalom Crossing and the spices are to be shipped to Europe for distribution.
