A range of Kosher food and drink items is to hit Marks and Spencer shelves across the country this weekend for the first time ever.
The retailer joins supermarket chains such as Sainsbury’s and Tesco, which have stocked Kosher products at selected stores for several years.
The new range will include 22 items, such as Mrs Elswood cucumbers, Telma chicken stock, Rakusen’s matzo meal, and Osem chicken-soup mix, but does not feature any refrigerated or frozen items.
It will be rolled out across 29 stores in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Essex, Leeds and Bournemouth, including in West Hampstead, Muswell Hill, and Temple Fortune.
But a spokesperson for M&S confirmed the retailer has “no immediate plans” to stock Kosher refrigerated or frozen items.
“But we are always listening to feedback. We will continue to keep a close eye on it,” she added.
