Chairman of Food Importers Association in favor of the kosher reform

The Minister of Religious Affairs, Matan Kahana, met this morning with the chairman of the Israel Food Importers Association, Michael Levy.
The two discussed the implications of Minister Kahana’s kosher program &#111n the food import industry to Israel. Levy emphasized to the Minister that the main revolution for food importers is the expected reduction in raw materials, which will significantly affect food prices in Israel.
According to Levy, the import market suffers profoundly from an excess of bureaucracy that makes it difficult for new importers to enter the market and this is another reason that affects the cost of living. “The facilitations that a training program will bring is great news for importers,” he said.
“I would like to thank the Minister for the meeting and I am very happy about the new kosher reform. We are happy to hear that it will maintain the halakhic standards as they have been to date and beyond that will shorten procedures, open all import barriers and help lower the cost of living in Israel.”
