Hello, kosher food crisis...

It's official...there's a meat shortage.
It is safe to say that we will no longer be getting deliveries from Agriprocessors, Inc. Their facilities have been closed since late last week, and there is no reason to believe that they will re-open. We have been using alternate suppliers for the past 3 months trying to supplement our beef inventory. Although we have long expected that this would happen, the kosher beef market has been devastated. They supplied a majority of the kosher beef in the US.. The demand for beef far exceeds the supply chain.

Unlike in the general population, where many restaurants and fast food businesses specialize in a particular type of food, many kosher establishments have a variety of different types of food popular among Jews.
