Maya was founded as Maya Spice of Life Jerusalem in 1982.
Three young friends, newly-released from the IDF, Moishe, Israel and Udi, established a small factory in Jerusalem’s Givat Shaul neighborhood. They had just one food packing machine for powdered spices. They decided to call the company MAYA, an acronym for their three Hebrew names.
In 1998, Maya moved to the industrial zone of Mishor Adumim, today housing production plants, distribution warehouses and the management staff. In 2010, the company changed its official name to ‘Maya Food Industries’
