Survey: Kashrut's Price Impact Minimal


The added cost of kosher certification in Israel does not add a significant amount of price to food, according to an Arutz Sheva survey. The survey showed that the price of a kosher pizza was only 1.1 percent higher, based on the cost of a kashrut inspector and food in a kosher hotel was only .003 percent higher.

The survey noted the price of non-kosher meat abroad is similar to that of kosher meat, and with 72 percent of the population keeping kosher, the demand for non-kosher items is relatively low and not profitable.
