From the Editor
2/24/14 — Welcome to our special
Passover preview of some of the 300 new items that will be introduced for the
upcoming holiday. Last issue we covered the new kosher wines and found out we
missed some. We no doubt missed some foods as well but we hope this special
coverage by Eda Kram, our new product editor, will give you a general idea of
what’s new for Passover.
Launching new products for Passover has become an
important imperative for kosher food purveyors but they are not without risk.
