THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following news is from the Aretz 7 on July 10, 2013.

On July 10th, the Knesset passed on its preliminary reading a law that would forbid the import and sale of foie gras. "The law would complement a 2003 High Court decision that ordered the Agriculture Ministry to actively enforce a ban on foie gras production, which entails the force feeding of geese and ducks, the main source for the fatty liver delicacy. Since 2006, the Ministry has been consistently enforcing the production ban, but importing foie gras for sale in Israel was still legal."
