Dates, with their high fruit yield, are an important export crop for a number of countries in the Middle East. The date palm tree has an important place in Arabian mythology and is featured above the coat of arms of Saudi Arabia. It was also very popular with the Greeks as an exotic plant and was often used in the shape of its branches and leaves to decorate the surroundings of their temples, and because of its high nutritional value it was also known as desert bread and the Iraqis called it green gold.
Along with social development and market demand, the vacuum packaging of dates has become a trend.
Vacuum-packed dates have a beautiful appearance, a long shelf life and, through water injection, a better taste. They are very popular in countries all over the world.
