Canned tuna prices are going down

One of the ways the government supports Israeli industry is to tax an imported product if that same product is also produced locally.  That seems like a good thing, no? As a Zionist, we all want to support Israeli industry, right?

However, sometimes this comes at a price – literally.  When there are only a few Israeli manufacturers of a certain product it is relatively easy to fix prices – and not to the benefit of the consumer.  This happened with bread and dairy products in recent years.  Naftali Bennet stated that one of his aims to lower prices to the consumer is to lower import taxes which will force local prices to decrease.

Next on the chopping block- canned tuna.  After years of fighting, Yair Lapid finally signed an act lowering the import tax on canned tuna gradually over the next few years.  Manufacturers say  flooding the market with cheap, low quality products will force them out of business because they can’t produce canned tuna at the same cost as manufacturers in countries such as China and Thailand.

So how low will the price go before you stop buying blue and white?  Or are you Zionist at any price?

FYI there are five manufacturers of canned tuna in Israel:

  1. Starkist (AKA Yonah)
  2. Pri HaGalil
  3. Wiliger (AKA Poseidon)
  4. Filtuna
  5. Adi

Although it isn’t easy to get through a Hebrew cookbook, I really try because the recipes are more appropriate to Israeli ingredients and equipment.

If you have never been to their web site, it is worth a view.  There are some interesting facts, such as:

A few important facts about light tuna (Skipjack):

  • Tuna is very rich in protein (27%), is high in nutritional value like milk, chicken and beef, and also low in calories.
  • Tuna preserved in oil contains 10% fat, mostly vegetable, and also contains omega-3 oil, a healthy fat which reduces cholesterol and lessens the risk of heart attacks.
  • Tuna preserved in water has a specially low percentage of fat – 1%, and contains the same amount of omega- 3 healthy fat.
  • Light tuna is fished in the deep ocean (rather than near the shore) and contains exceptionally low levels of mercury, 10 times less than that allowed by the Israeli standard. The tuna is preserved without artificial preservatives using only natural materials.
  • The American FDA recommends eating at least 340 gr. light tuna a week, and also notes that eating tuna once a week or more is likely to reduce mortality from CHD (heart attacks).
  • The Company has worldwide exclusivity in producing products using Sea of Galilee sardines which contain more than twice as much calcium as regular sardines.
