Kosher Meat Void in U.S.

The bankruptcy of Agriprocessors in Postville, the worlds largest Kosher abattoir, has left a massive void in the supply of Kosher meat in the United States.

The bankruptcy of Agriprocessors in Postville, the worlds largest Kosher abattoir, has left a massive void in the supply of Kosher meat in the United States. This follows the stopping of Kosher production of beef at the two plants of North Star Beef earlier in the year.

Empire Kosher Poultry, Pennsylvania, is going to increase production by 50%, in order to counter some of the shortages. The beef market for Kosher beef, has been divided all over the country, to companies that have a revolving stunning box and approval from the Jewish authorities.
