Unveiling the Wide Price Gap in Passover Baskets: Israeli Study Reveals Significant Disparities in Retail Chains.

Ministry of Economy releases price comparison for Passover shopping prior to bulk purchases

The Israeli Consumer Council and the Ministry of Economy conducted a study on the prices of common goods in the “Passover basket.” The research found that there was a 32% gap between the most expensive and cheapest retail chains, with some products having price differences of over 100%. Overall, the cost of the Passover basket increased by 4% compared to last year.

Specialists from both organizations checked prices for 155 goods in 44 retail chains across Israel, including online stores. The study revealed significant price differences for products such as tomato sauce, cleaning sponges, chocolate spread, salmon fillets, and ketchup.

On average, the cost of 155 items in the Passover basket in Israel is around 3,250 shekels. Rami Levy was found to be the cheapest retail chain, offering the basket for just under 3,000 shekels. AM:PM was determined to be the most expensive at approximately 3,900 shekels. Other retail chains had varying price ratings based on their offerings below or above the national average.

The results of this study highlight the importance of comparing prices and making informed decisions when shopping for goods needed during Passover. By utilizing this information, consumers can save money and ensure they are getting the best value for their money during the holiday season.
