Miriam Shoham LTD was established in 1984 by Miriam and Menachem Shoham.
The company started as a family agriculture farm and since then has grown into an organization that handles the whole process chain (growing, picking, packing & marketing) of 4 fruits:
Mango - July to September
Pomegranates - August to February
Orri Mandarin - January to May
Avocado – September to April (green skin and Hass).
Shoham invests extensively towards ensuring the quality of its products and in developing new products and product categories as it addresses clients’ needs, with a focus on marketing networks and stable specializations in premium markets. Our goal is to directly reach end clients, which provides them with an advantage over their competitors. This in turn allows our end clients an opportunity to access new targets, preserve existing target populations, and at the end of the day, expand the consumption of Shoham products.
Shoham’s clients enjoy high level customization of our products to their preferences and requirements, full cooperation in creatively planning new products, availability, stable and uniform supply, and full confidence in Shoham products, manifesting in fruit cleaned of all pesticide residue as required. The produce reaches the client within the agreed time frame and in accordance with specifications (taste, color, uniformity, hardness, and free of internal problematics). When buying Shoham products, clients know they’ve ensured themselves an advantage over their competitors.
Achieving these capabilities is made possible through Shohams’ ongoing investments in research, and in developing and executing enhancement processes for post-harvest fruit. The key to growth and creating competitive advantage derives from research, the resultant knowledge, and the development and implementation of industrial production processes that improve the quality of post-harvest fruit.
