About Elite (Company)
Elite was founded in the 1920's in Latvia by Eliyahu Fromenchenko. When Fromenchenko immigrated to Mandatory Palestine in 1933, he and his partners established a factory in Ramat Gan. Their most popular brand at the time was 'Cow Chocolate', only called so because of the cow pictured on the packaging. The company quickly grew and set up factories in Safed and Nazareth Illit.
In 1970, Elite purchased the "Leiber" candy company, giving Elite control of two of its most popular brands today: the Mekupelet chocolate bar and the local Bazooka chewing gum license.
The Israeli snack food market had been traditionally divided by Elite in the sweets market and Osem in the salty market. In 1991, Elite decided to expand by entering the salty snack market by establishing a new factory in Sderot and specifically producing 'Shosh', a copy of the Bamba snack, the most popular snack in Israel made by Osem. Elite became the local licensee of Frito-Lay products, producing the best-selling brand 'Tapuchips'. Later, Elite started selling coffee outside of Israel, especially in Europe and South America.
In 2004 Elite and Strausse merged. Strauss focuses mostly on dairy products while Elite focuses on chocolate, coffee, and dry snack foods.
