The Osem Company is Israel’s leading exporter of kosher food to the USA.
The US subsidiary Osem USA (fully owned by the Osem Group) is considered the number one importer of food products from Israel, operating an efficient and strong marketing network.
Osem has always ascribed great importance to the Jewish market in the US. The company recognized the immense potential of its unique high-quality brands and products with their high standards of kashrut, among this sizeable, diverse population. While other manufacturers invested most of their efforts in gaining over the general market – all but neglecting the Jewish one – here at Osem we never lost sight of this market’s potential and worked hard to break into it even as we gained a strong foothold in the general US market.
Following this approach and having realized that only a local presence would lead to substantial achievements on the US market, in 1994 the Osem Group establish a US subsidiary – Osem USA.
The results were not long in coming: Since 1994, Osem US sales have increased more than fourfold, and the company’s growth rate percentage is in the double digits every year.
Osem USA imports and distributes Osem goods throughout the US. Other Israeli companies that sought the assistance of Osem US, found in it the ideal partner – who knows both the needs of the American market and the capabilities of Israeli manufacturers.
In addition to Osem and Migdanot Habayit products, the company imports, markets and distributes throughout the US products from Wissotzki, Matzot Rishon, Matzot Karmel, Einat, Couscous Maison, Milos, Progress, Tempo, Beit Hashita, Beigel & Beigel, Manamim, Creative, and Menora Candles.
Osem USA is now the most significant player in the marketing and distribution of Israeli food products in the USA, supplying goods to over 1,000 private stores and approximately 3,000 supermarkets across the US. Among the supermarket chains selling Israeli goods supplied by Osem are Price, Wegman’s, Waldbaum, A&P, Kings, Pathmark, Shoprite, Chopper, Giant, Albertson’s, Ralph’s, Smith’s, Von’s, Safeway, Kroger, Wal-Mart, Publix, Acme, Crown, Fairway, Associated, National Wholesaler's, Food Emporium, Fred Meyers, Fry's, H.E.Butt, Hiller Markets, QFC and Super Fresh.
