|Founded by||Immigrants from Poland, Yugoslavia and Austria|
Kibbutz Gat was founded in 1934 by Jewish immigrants from Poland, Yugoslavia and Austria. In 1949, after the inhabitants of the nearby Palestinian village of Iraq al-Manshiyya had been expelled, some of their lands were transferred to Kibbutz Gat. Primor, one of Israel's largest juice manufacturers, is operated by the kibbutz. Citramed, another company located in Kibbutz Gat, has developed a method to squeeze out the antibacterial properties in the rind of citrus fruit for use as a natural preservative in health products and the food industry.
