RoqSolid is an Israeli licensed importer of foodstuffs for 13 years, distributing mainly organic raw materials for manufacturers.

More recently, RoqSolid has begun importing retail items from the organic sector, and for four years has been the exclusive importer into Israel of the Germany-based Schnitzer GmbH food company www.schnitzer.eu.

Through the years we have built strong relationships with over 500 points-of-sale in health and natural food stores in Israel, as well as restaurants, bars, and cafes.

Our active online marketing presence has allowed us to add direct end-user delivery capabilities, putting us in a unique position to efficiently penetrate your brand into the local market.

Enthused by our having surpassed sales benchmarks and our visible on and offline sales and marketing efforts and achievements, Schnitzer has now extended our import exclusivity for another two years, instead of the prior rolling annual one.

Importation and Distribution

Our objective is to be your brand’s exclusive Israeli importing extension in the health-based foodstuffs category, focusing on developing this untapped market for your brand.

Our passion is to spotlight low-carb and gluten-free products. Whether you seek new targeted markets, new distribution, or sales enhancement in Israel, RoqSolid will work together with you to develop the business.

Outsource your Sales Force

Instead of opening a full-fledged office, outsource your Israeli market sales to RoqSolid as your direct importer and watch us produce results.

In addition to tapping into our existing network, our staff will present your products at industry trade shows, client meetings and direct cold calls, among other avenues, to help you reach your sales goals in our region.

According to our proven sales track-record, we will develop your sales and marketing plans to maximize your brand’s growth.
