10 February 2007: Agrexco-Carmel depot, Middlesex

Agrexco, known under the brand name of Carmel in the UK, is Israel's largest exporter of fresh agricultural produce.

The UK market accounts for 60% of all Israeli vegetable exports, and there has been a dramatic increase in British sales over the past few years.

The company is particularily active in exporting produce made on illegal Israeli settlements. Agrexco also exported flowers to the UK for Valentine's Day. The demonstration's aim was to prevent any flowers from leaving the depot on that day.
