Posted June 29, 2019 09:58:10 The Israeli army is back in the kitchenware business, after the IDF removed its prohibition on all foreign imports.
The army announced Friday that it will allow foreign suppliers of kitchenware and other household items to import their wares to the Israeli military for testing and to repair.
The decision to allow foreign imports of kitchen ware and other kitchenware came after a week-long inspection of the IDF’s equipment inventory by an independent team led by former IDF chief of staff Lt.
Gen. Yaakov Amidror.
After the inspection, the Israeli government agreed to let a third foreign manufacturer to import and test its equipment in return for a discount.
The decision will go into effect on July 1, the army said.
Habib, an Israeli luxury company based in Tel Aviv, said Friday it will start selling kitchenware from Israeli suppliers.
The company said it will sell its products to foreign customers and to companies outside Israel, but did not provide details.
Hibib has long marketed its products as made in Israel, which is the country’s largest trading partner.
