Pre-portioned Flash Frozen Garlic & Herbs

Fresh herbs, washed, chopped and frozen into little cubes for maximum taste, aroma and convenience in every kitchen.

All that’s GOOD for you – is inside

The great thing about instant picking and freezing of fresh herbs is that it keeps all that’s nutritious, healthy and yummy.
That leaves us with minimal need for preservation, accomplished using citrus fibre, a dash of canola oil, and even less salt. Nothing more.

All that’s NOT good for you – is kept out

All our herbs are:

Keeping your healthy cooking easy (and fun)

You always have fresh herbs in your freezer,

even for the most spontaneous (or unconventional hours) cooking

You just take the tray out of the freezer, press out your portion of fresh herb, and put the tray back in the freezer

The portions are identical in size and weight, making it so much easier to replicate a successful dish

So no matter if you cook on a daily basis or from time to time, you won’t suffer from expired herbs when you need them

Summer or winter time, you always have available fresh herbs of all kinds
Compact and easy storing tray, fitting even the freezer size door

Fresh Frozen Herbs? How does that work?

That can sound a bit contracting but that’s the essence of our innovation and success. Here’s how we do it:

Our growers grow garlic and herbs for us under our instruction and inspection.

All these lovely herbs are hand-picked, chopped and frozen in a unique process of rapid freezing. Thanks to this process we can maintain the freshness and nutritional values of each herb. Because our herbs are kept in their fresh state, so are their taste and scent. In practice, that means:

Forget about

Spending money on fresh herbs and throwing most of them away after they go bad

Wasting all your cooking energy on slicing, dicing, peeling, and cleaning up

Trying to get the strong scent of herbs off your hands

Making a mess in the kitchen even before you got to the cooking part

How did we come up with crushed garlic?

Like many good ideas, the fresh crushed garlic was born thanks to our customers who demanded it. The people wanted easier seasoning solutions.

The first line of products was small diced garlic, but that wasn’t the solution our customers were after. So we started searching for that thing. A devoted Dorot Kibbutz member took upon himself the task and turned his home into a garlic test lab. Then, in one defining moment, somewhere in the mid-eighties, a prototype was formulated. Years after, this prototype evolved into our flag product: frozen crushed garlic.

The first Dorot factory even built operated from no more than a caravan in the Kibbutz. The year was 1992. Years after, the factory moved out of the caravan, grew, advanced, and we are very proud to say we are now the largest provider of fresh frozen herbs in all of Israel.

How does a garlic factory smell like?

Not like you would have imagined there’s no large cloud of garlic smell hoovering everything. But maybe you’ll find it interesting to know that we make 4,000 trays an hour! Which means many millions of trays a year. Our products are divided into those serving private customers, and those serving the food service.

From the Kibbutz to all of Israel and the world

Dorot distributes herbs across Israel – to the largest distribution chains, the industrial and food service markets, and to private stores.

On a global level, we operate as an integral part of markets across the world since 1998.

In Europe, we have great customers working together for many years in the British, Spanish, Hungarian, and Austrian markets.
