Ma'an sheds some light on the recent allowances for strawberry and flower exports from Gaza:
For export, two truckloads of strawberries will leave Gaza under the auspices of a program headed up by the Dutch government. The program supports strawberry and carnation farmers in the Strip, and as of 10 December secured permission from Israeli crossings officials for the regular export of both goods.

According to Consul General for the Netherlands in Jerusalem Jack Twiss Quarles van Ufford, the strawberries are transported to the French port of Marseilles, from where they enter French and German markets via three major grocery chains there.

Carnations, Twiss told Ma'an, are transported from the Tel Aviv to the Shipool Airports in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from where they travel by conveyor belt to the Aalsmeer Flower Auction, the largest flower auction house in the world.

There, Gaza carnations compete with other producer in the world market and are sold globally.
I wonder if the strawberries are labeled in the French and German supermarkets as having come from Gaza?
