Israeli Press Covers Finistere

In a recent article, the Haaretz covers Finistere’s Arama Kukutai in explaining recent changes in consumer preferences for meat and, more generally, Finistere’s presence in Israel. From the article:

Meron notes that Kukutai’s history with Israeli agritech predates Finistere, “He was here in the 1990s and saw the advanced technology developed by Afimilk of Kibbitz Afikim,” Meron says. “Later he wanted to invest in a New Zealand company and found out the entrepreneur behind it was an Israeli. With success stories like Netafim in drip irrigation, Zeraim Gedera, which was bought by Syngenta, and others, no one had to explain to him that Israel was a leader in the area.”
