Food Industries Association


The Association of Food Industries of the MAI represents all the food manufacturers in Israel. Approximately 200 food and drinks manufacturers, producing a wide range of products, belong to the association.

The association promotes the development of the Israeli food industry, particularly small and medium-sized factories, and strives to create a supportive business environment for manufacturers.

It works together with the MAI’s various units to improve the business environment for food manufacturers and ensures that the entire range of food branches and companies are professionally represented at the individual, branch and sectorial levels.

The association is active on two levels:

Macro – dealing with regulatory bodies and statutory authorities on behalf of the food industry and all its branches as a whole.

Micro – assisting individual manufacturers, via the wide range of services offered by the association and the MAI.

The association directorate formulates policy and plans on a general scale and discusses ongoing and sectorial problems faced by manufacturers. Small, medium-sized and large companies are represented on the directorate, which is elected at a general assembly.
