For over the past 60 years, Mehadrin has always believed that the foundations of the company are rooted in the earth of its orchards and the people in the field.
Our fresh produce comes in daily from over 50,000 dunam of agricultural holdings across Israel. The vast majorities of our orchards is owned by the company or are on a long term lease to Mehadrin and are solely tended to by our growers.
A strong family, a strong career
Mehadrin takes pride in the fact that many of its employees have been with the company for tens of years, and at the same time, believes in combining that incredible experience and knowledge with young agronomists who bring progress, innovation and adventurousness.
Our agronomists are graduates of Israel's leading schools of agriculture who start from the field and work their way up. The supportive surroundings and hands-on experience, along with constant professional guidance and training, is our secret to 'raising' the finest agronomists and growers in the world.
Growers at heart
Growing the highest quality produce is our goal. Mehadrin allocates extensive resources towards research and development which includes professional cooperation with leading institutes and researchers. Our growers are continuously involved in field trials and experiments, and work closely with other growers in order to share knowledge and grow the healthiest, tastiest and freshest produce our land can offer.
Mehadrin keeps strict protocols regarding crop protection and aspires to bringing the level of disinfestation to a minimal. Our GPS system is installed in all our field vehicles, allowing us to monitor the crop protection activity in all our fields. Every single one of our fields is closely monitored and meets all international requirements. Transparency in a basic value in Mehadrin and our knowledge and data is openly shared with our clients.
Building partnerships for the future
Each one of the three regions is managed by regional managers, with 4-6 supervisors and 15-20 orchard managers. All our growers take part in advanced workshops at least three times a year in order to 'irrigate' the roots of innovation, research and know-how which we are known for.
Our growers work closely with leading institutions in Israel such as the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, The Agricultural Research Organization (ARO) – Volcani Center, and the Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Mehadrin proudly hosts a significant part of the joint citrus experiments in its fields with a focus on agro-technical treatment, fertilization, development of new species and more.
