More Than 300 New Pesach Food Products Hitting The Monsey Shelves This Year

More than 300 new food items will be on grocery shelves this Passover season, according to the annual pre-Passover report of Lubicom. One category that seems to be growing with each passing Passover is the snack aisle. Where once there were virtually no snacks available for Passover, the snack category continues to explode, according to Menachem Lubinsky, founder and producer of Kosherfest for 33 years.

“While there were many concerns about supply in time for Passover, miraculously there were no impediments,” said Lubinsky. He was referring to the many Passover foods produced in Israel, some of which are manufactured in the areas of conflict in the North and South of Israel. A particular focus was on the many wines that are imported from Israel. There was also concern about potential shipping issues due to the war. “It is a testament of the strength of the kosher market that there are so many new foods and wines for Passover this year,” he added. Nearly 40% of an estimated $ 4 billion in kosher sales takes place around Passover time. Passover sales are estimated at $1.75 billion, which includes the lucrative foodservice business.

Amongst the new products to be introduced this year will be many items by Kayco, a major distributor of kosher foods. In general, there will be many new snack items, including.
