Empire Kosher Poultry, a major producer in Pennsylvania, announced it would be increasing chicken production by 50 percent. The increase will go into effect next week, as will a 10 percent reduction in the price of boneless chicken breasts.
“Empire is proud to be able to step up to the plate and be sure that consumers throughout the United States have easy access to kosher poultry at their local supermarkets and butcher shops,” said Greg Rosenbaum, Empire’s chairman and CEO. “We are extremely grateful for the cooperation of our kosher certifying agencies, the OU, KAJ and Star-K, as well as the United Food and Commercial Workers Union to make this rapid expansion possible.”
