Galilee Export Advises They Will Switch to Save Foods' Treatment for All Bell Peppers Effective Immediately, Avocados to Follow

Miami, FL, Jan. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SAVE FOODS (NASDAQ: SVFD) (FSE: 80W) ( “SAVE FOODS” or the “Company”), an Agri-Food Tech company specializing in eco crop protection- designed to reduce food waste and ensure food safety, is pleased to announce that, following a series of successful trials, Galilee Export will require all their bell pepper suppliers to apply Save Foods’ treatment.

Galilee Export is the second largest exporter of fruit and vegetables in Israel, with sales of over US$200 million a year. The initial plan is for Galilee Export to treat 100% of their bell peppers with Save Foods’ product, with avocados coming online shortly afterwards.

Dror Eigerman, CEO of Galilee Export and Advisory Board Member of Save Foods commented: “After several months of evaluating Save Foods’ treatment, my team and I are convinced of the benefits of these products. Not only do they reduce decay and prevent food waste, but they also improve the firmness of the peppers. These benefits will help us to offer our customers consistently high-quality produce with no chemical residues. We are excited to start working with Save Foods to extend our market reach to countries with stricter pesticide regulations and to treat other fruits and vegetables in the near future.

Dan Sztybel, CEO of Save Foods’ Israeli subsidiary, Save Foods Ltd., noted: “Our products address two of the major challenges of the food industry—food waste and loss reduction. Packing houses around the world are facing new challenges, such as keeping produce fresh throughout the —often long —transportation and distribution process, and maintaining quality and shelf life with significantly reduced pesticide levels. Many major packing houses are currently carrying out trials on our products. We are looking forward to working with Galilee Export and are confident that we will be adding more major clients to our portfolio soon.”
