New Industries for Palestine

March 4, 1924
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A number of new industries are being established in Palestine, among them a bone fertilizer plant, a cigarette factory and an envelope factory.

Negotiations are proceeding for the establishment of the bone fertilizer factory at Tel Aviv. The prime mover in the scheme is a former resident of South Africa, who some time ago was struck by the fact that bones are not generally regarded as a product which could supply a valuable material. The promotor was formerly engaged in a similar industry in South Africa.

A small cigarette factory has been opened in Haifa by Mohammed Effendi El Nabulsi. Only cutting and sorting is being carried out at present. Four thousand pounds have been invested in the establishment of an envelope factory in Haifa and part of the necessary machinery has already arrived in the country.
