Why Should Kosher Corn Beef and Pastrami Cost So Much ? We know for a fact that Pork products undergoes more costly production costs that beef in general . Swine production is much more costly than Beef processing , from raising , feeding swine to smoking and curing it actually costs double that of what beef does that slated for Kosher Corned beef & Pastrami .
At one time all the Kosher provision companies where bought out by one or two concerns , this not the case as of today and yes there is a Machiacah fee (Ritual kosher inspector) , but it doesn’t justify the hefty cost. We could buy a Mussolinis revenge hero loaded with all good Italian cold cuts for $7.00 how in the world do they get away selling a kosher corned beef or pastrami on Rye for$19.00
You be the judge is it worth the extra cost when it undergoes less processing? We don’t thinkthat the hefty price is deserving
