New Players in Israel Mehadrin Poultry Marketplace Results in a Drop in Prices

As a result of new players in the Israeli mehadrin poultry marketplace, prices are dropping while most food prices in Eretz Yisrael continue to climb. Mehadrin chickens are now available for as low as 15 NIS kg, as opposed to 25-27 NIS kg before the new reality hit the market. This is due in part to the entry of new labels into the market, including chickens under the hashgacha of HaGaon HaRav Moshe Yehuda Leib Landau Shlita. These chickens will soon be joined by a new shechita under HaGaon HaRav Mordechai Gross Shlita, with a Sheiris Yisrael hashgacha.

The same holds true for mehadrin poultry with a hashgacha from Sephardi badatzim, including Beit Yosef (Rav Yosef) and Yoreh Deah (Rav Machpud). This is reflected by the sharp drop in poultry prices in Yerushalayim’s Shuk Bucharim. In addition, the ‘Yissa Bracha’ shechita of Rav Mordechai Eliyahu ZT”L is also being revitalized as it is returning to the marketplace.

Rabbi David Ohr Toladano, a senior official in the Igud HaKollelim Sephardim Yerushalmim explains he and his colleagues are doing their utmost to continue driving prices down to make mehadrin food more affordable for the Bnei Torah tzibur.

  1. To No. 2;

    What you pay for is what you get. The Badatz Eida Chareidis Hashgacha is the Gold Standard of hashgacha and comparing a Badatz chicken to the chickens from the other new hashgachot mentioned in the article is like comparing a Rolls Royce to Chevrolet Impala. Those who are mahader in matters of kashruth will only accept an absolutely top of the line Chassideshe Hashgacha…nothing less will do.
