300 New Kosher for Passover Products Despite Covid, Supply Problems

New York…Despite dire predictions that there would be problems introducing new products this Passover 2022 (April 15-23) an estimated 300 new items are slated for supermarket shelves. Sources had feared that the residual effects of the Covid-19 pandemic as well as the supply chain problems would severely impede the ability of kosher food companies to import and introduce new products. Kosher certification agencies have managed to overcome many obstacles to assure the timely production of the Passover items. The influx of products from Israel, now supplying more than half of Passover products has proceeded seamlessly including the significant supply of matzos.

Kosher Today reached out to many distributors and manufacturers and the following are some of the responses:
