On purchasing fruit and veg that come from Israel, how should I separate terumah and maaser?

Cut off and set aside just over 1% of the product and say the following formula:

“All the separations and redeeming of trumos u’maasros shall be in accordance with the formula of the Chazon Ish, and ma’aser sheni and revei should be redeemed on the coin that is set aside in the London Beth Din.”

Wrap up and throw out the separated piece.

Eat and enjoy.

Please note: teruma and maaseh may not be separated on Shabbat or Yom Tov.
