Kosher Grocery Stores In Short Supply Of Baby Formula

Kosher grocery stores are facing depleted stocks of an imported Israeli baby formula popular among Hasidic Jewish families.

Materna, the manufacturer, is no longer able to make shipments to the U.S., leading to shortages of one of the few dairy-based formulas that conforms to the religious laws followed by Hasidic Jews.

“I’m getting at least ten calls a day asking if it’s in,” said Yermi Fried, manager of Empire Kosher in Crown Heights. “It’s sad, there’s a big demand. People are grabbing it off the shelf, whatever is available. I have barely anything left.”
