Between Banana fields and Avocado trees lies a magical place. A place surrounded by wonderful tastes and aromas.

Idan was born in Kibbutz Hanita, located on the northern border of Israel. She studied food engineering at the Tel Hai College and earned her B.A in management and economics at Bar Ilan University. Idan worked in several factories and laboratories dealing with food technology before she opened her "Dried Fruit" Factory.
The agricultural knowledge and the technology gained during the years brought up the idea of a new concept to natural product – handmade of 100% dried fruit.
Idan and Nadav identified the need and desire of the people for better foods and healthier nutrition; they called their business "Idan Hapri" ("Fruit Age") and they focus on healthy and tasty foods.
