The butter shortage in Israel has led to not only difficulties in finding butter but also higher prices.

Now is your chance to do something about it.

Proposal to cancel the import tax on butter

Grocery store shortage

The Minister of Finance is reviewing a proposal to cancel the import tax of 120% to 160% on butter.  This would mean not only lower-priced butter from other countries, but also encouragement for local producers to offer butter at better prices.

The Minister is receiving public comment through Tuesday 21.01.2020.

  2. Well, its hard to believe that the famous Israeli Butter is no longer. I remember eating it on warm Israeli Rye bread when I was a young Olah. I don’t understand why it disappeared. Years later i have found that butter (all dairy) does not agree with me. I must admit, I found a wonderful recipe for a Vegan Butter that is very good and easy to make. If anyone wants the recipe they can email me. Plus there is a different Vegan spread that is absolutely delicious on toasted bagels, “The Nuts Chef”, Cashew Delight, found at Duvduvan and other like stores.
