Cheese at a heavy price


Although this is something I noted previously, cheese is a very expensive product in Israel.  Yisrael HaYom checked the price of Gouda cheese around the world and confirmed: we are 2-3 times more expensive than Britain and 23 times more expensive than the US.  Yisrael HaYom says it is because in chul there are private labels, but one important point was not mentioned- whether they compared kosher Gouda in Israel with kosher Gouda in chul. I suspect not.

    The price of cheese also depends on if it is a local brand or not (e.g. gilboa, noam, Ahuza are all a lot cheaper than gouda) and if you buy it pre-packaged or at the cheese counter (the cheese counter is significantly cheaper.)
