The IsraFood expo which was held in Tel Aviv this week featured Simply Sushi, a company which sells several combinations of mehadrin kosher sushi and distributes them in boxes throughout Israel.

Dekel Bechor of Simply Sushi told Arutz Sheva that what makes the sushi mehadrin kosher stamp reliable is the fact that the entire cooking process is supervised stringently by rabbis. The rice, for example, is checked twice before cooking, the choice of fish is rabbinically supervised as kosher. 

He admitted that sushi is considered “high class” food and noted that Tel Aviv ranks third in the world in sushi consumption, but said that there is quite a demand for it among the religious sector.

“I think there is a big market for religious clients,” he said. “We get a lot of phone calls from people who are eating our sushi and thanking us for it being kosher.” Lemehadrin, that is.
