Israel's leading tea manufacturer, Wissotzky Tea, plans to establish subsidiaries in several countries. Family-owned Wissotzky was established in Moscow in 1849 and has been active in Israel since 1935, processing and manufacturing some 200 different tea products to gain nearly 70% of the domestic market.

The company established a US subsidiary last year, and further international growth has been prompted by its impressive growth on the local market, where it competes successfully with several multinational companies.
