Passover Basket Price Gap: Study Reveals Extreme Differences in Retail Chains”.

The Ministry of Economy and Industry, in collaboration with the Israeli Consumer Council, conducted a study on prices for 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 just 4% compared to last year.

Experts from both organizations checked prices for 155 items in 44 retail chains throughout Israel, as well as online stores. The study revealed that certain products had significant price disparities, including tomato sauce, cleaning sponges, chocolate spread, salmon fillets and ketchup.

On average, consumers can expect to pay around 3,250 shekels for their Passover baskets. Rami Levy was found to be the cheapest retail chain offering the basket for just 2,923 shekels. At the other end of the spectrum was AM:PM, which sold the basket at an inflated price of 3,851 shekels. Other retail chains fell somewhere in between these two extremes.

The study highlights how important it is for consumers to compare prices when shopping for essential items during Passover. By making informed choices based on this information gathered by specialists from both organizations, people can save money and make better financial decisions during this holiday season.
