butterTnuva Eida Chareidit Butter
If you are one of the shoppers who usually purchases Tnuva Eida Chareidit butter, you may have noticed the item disappeared from store shelves.

I began wondering and after receiving a number of emails questioning what happened, I spoke to my contact at the Jerusalem-based kashrut agency. The disappearance of the butter is due to a shortage of fresh milk.

The rabbi explained that as a result, a number of items were manufactured of late using milk powder, which simply does not suffice for butter, hence the shortage.

Beginning today/tomorrow, the distribution of butter is expected to get underway and those experiencing the shortage should see the product on store shelves in the coming days.
