For Royal Wines, into digital marketing…Eda Kram has a heart-tucker as developmentally disabled built a kosher gift business at Kosherfest… Kosher retailers want you to wear a mask when you shop and to social distance, but can they enforce? Heard about the kosher boxes? Some actually have good food…In My Sixth Sense, I was shocked to learn that Passover operators are worried about…2021??...Eda Kram in her New Product Showcase covers breaded salmon cubes.
