The ‘saltiest’ meat on the block? – Jerusalem Post
The Jerusalem Police Department is considering a plan to replace the salt from meat with artificial flavors and colours to keep the city’s kosher meat market alive, the Post reported on Monday.
“We want to create a new market that is totally kosher,” Chief of the Health Department Yehuda Yosef told The Jerusalem Mail.
“We are talking to manufacturers and consumers about this.”
A year ago, Yosef said the police would replace the Salt of Life brand with a new brand that was made by the same company that manufactures artificial flavors.
“The Salt of Health brand is a brand that we want to keep alive, so that it remains kosher for consumers,” Yosef added.
The department will be consulting with manufacturers and will submit the proposal to the Chief of Police’s office before making the decision.
“I would like to create another brand, but we need to do it with the right people,” Yoseff added.
“This brand should be kosher.”
The city’s meat market, which has a yearly turnover of some $3 billion, is the largest in the world.
It also serves as a center for Jews of the Knesset and other officials to meet.
