The following information is from the YeshivaWorld on aAugust 6, 2013.

An Israeli magistrate court ruled that imported products must include the cost of kashus. "Customs officials’ believe the import tariff must include the price of kashrus, including sending Chief Rabbinate of Israel inspectors to the shechita location abroad. This of course significantly increases the value of the product and as a result, higher customs fees." "If customs officials decide to abide by the court ruling and apply it across the board to all kosher imports, the price increase in the marketplace will be extremely dramatic. "
