Mothers to Ask Strauss for Prices as Low as Abroad

Members of the "Israel is Dear to Us" protest group are expected to go to the Strauss food company, Monday, to present Chairwoman of the Board Ofra Strauss with a letter from mothers demanding that the company make its prices in Israel as low as they are abroad, according to a Monday morning report by Channel 10 television.

The move is part of the "Pesek Zeman" protests, which made headlines after an Israeli surfer who lives in the United States uploaded a photo to the Facebook social site in which it can be seen that the unit price of a Pesek Zeman (time out) candy bar in the United States is much lower than it is in Israel.
