The New Meat Factory Project
It has been ten days that I am working - on and off - on this meat factory project in the Jerusalem Mountains. The place was formerly Israel's largest chicken factory, it has been abandoned, and now two businessmen are rebuilding it as a specialty meat factory. It is rather complicated because several engineering firms have been working on it and it is difficult to make sense of it.
Now that the Agriprocessor Meat Factory has filed for bankrupcy and its owners are in jail, these Israeli factories may fulfil the vacuum they left. The Shor HaBor logo (pic) is now illegal in the USA. There is a large market for smoked and processed kosher meat products. BTW, the Hungarian salami industry - Pick and Hertz - was founded by Jews. Hungarian salami is a Jewish invention.
