Osem Executive: As Many as 6 Million American Jews Consume Israeli Products

Secaucus, NJ … Israeli products are popular with American Jewish households, irrespective of their religious observance, said Izzet Ozdogan, CEO of Osem USA at a reception for the incoming Israel Economic Minister to North America, Nili Shalev. The reception took place in a packed room at Kosherfest, at which the show’s founder Menachem Lubinsky also spoke. Mr. Ozdogan said that as many as 6,000,000 people living in Jewish households consumed Israeli products (including such brands as Osem, Sugat, Elite, Telma, Wissotsky, and Pereg). About one million of the consumers keep kosher all year-round, Mr. Ozdogan said.
