Uzi Hajabi is the person killed in the work accident at the chocolate factory in Petah Tikva, which occurred last Friday.
Hajbi, about 60 years old at the time of his death, was the owner of the Chocolate Company Chocolate Industries.
His brother Gideon said today: "The factory was his child."
The shocking accident occurred on Friday morning.
Hajabi stayed in the factory with his partner and brother.
For a reason that has not yet been clarified, he is trapped in the chocolate mixer and crushed to death.
Firefighters and rescue teams rescued his body and MDA teams were called to the scene, but they had no choice but to determine his death.
Hajabi has no children and he lived with his partner in Rosh HaAyin.
"He was killed on the spot," his brother Gideon repeated.
"Now we are waiting for burial. He had no children. The factory was his child."

One of Hajabi's acquaintances said: "We are in shock. We do not digest that he was killed."
He said Hajabi "was a good and respectful man, from his youth onwards. We have a hard time with this news. Since we received the bitter news on Friday we have a hard time understanding how such a good person was killed in such a tragic way. The heart just broke."
