Report: Israel tries to halt rising dairy prices

Oct. 5, 2012 9:48 A.M. (Updated: Oct. 6, 2012 7:40 A.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma’an) -- Israeli dairy products will be opened to international competition, in order to keep a check on rising prices in the market, Israeli newspaper Haaretz said Friday.

The Ministry of Finance will decrease high customs duties on dairy imports, in order to offset a price rise on raw milk set by the agriculture ministry, Haaretz reported.

The high price of cottage cheese became the emblem of Israel's social justice protests last year. Israeli dairy products are also common in the West Bank, where demonstrations against the cost of living broke out last month.
