The cooperative consolidates the activities of Israel's largest and most advanced date producers, including quality control, administration, marketing, sales and export activities.
Hadiklaim and its members enjoy important advantages in the rapidly growing international market for date and date products. First and foremost, the geography and climate of the region is ideal for date production, and dates have been grown in the area since biblical times.

We are proud to produce dates that repeatedly set industry standards in quality, appeal and consumer satisfaction.
