Israeli consumers are not as potato-savvy as their European counterparts, not very particular about the potato variety they are eating.

Hevel Maon Enterprises, understanding the potential of marketing commodities with higher quality and standards, created the brand name "Uncle Moses" in 2002. All "Uncle Moses" products undergo high quality control, mostly with optical sorting machines. Potatoes come in 3 different color consumer packages, according to recommended usage – baking, cooking and frying. "Uncle Moses" is trying to increase Israelis’ potato awareness by being the only brand which also specifies the variety on the bag. The "Uncle Moses" brand name is known not only for its potatoes but for its carrots, baby radishes and onions as well.
