I live in Dallas, Texas and am super excited that the Whole Foods stores here are finally carrying kosher poultry! After inquiring at two of the stores, I was given different answers as to whether or not we will continue to see Kosher Valley products after Passover. Please do continue to stock these products all year long, as strictly-kosher consumers are looking for quality kosher poultry throughout the year, not only on Passover. Thank you!

Thanks so much for sharing information on healthier products for Passover. I have been looking for organic matzo crackers and products and am delighted that Streit's has now made them available. Also, the Kosher Valley poultry products sound excellent as well. Please continue bringing us more organic products, Whole Foods! Best, Alexis W.

I am thrilled to see Kosher Valley products at Whole Foods. I hope to see these products after Passover as well in the Boca Raton, Fl store. I have seen many kosher items come and go in the last few years...more kosher, more organic/vegan for the kosher community - YAY! I love the kosher wines available as well. Keep it up please.

Can you please post some Passover recipes for the Sedar? Thank-you very much. I also need an idea how many pounds of fresh/frozen gefilte fish I need to order per person.

Would appreciate your offering a few more Passover-appropriate food items. Jews still eat three meals a day for eight days and do not live on matzoh and gefilte fish, or cake mixes and macaroons. We also need veggies, salad dressing, sauces,dairy products, and especially frozen dinners appropriate for the Passover dietary restrictions. Finding these in the San Gabriel Valley is now impossible. Our nearest Whole Foods is over 20 miles one way. Carrying a full range of Passover products would be a big plus, and doing so could be publicized in various Jewish weekly newspapers and welcomed by very frustrated homemakers.

Thank you for your efforts on this matter. I usually make my own foods, rather than buy the products full of preservatives and non-organic ingredients. It will be refreshing to know that the Passover products I find at Whole Foods are healthier

I am a regular shopper at my neighborhood Whole Fds at Fremont and 15th in Portland. Every every time I go to WF, I long for more organic choices and especially organic that are local choices. In fact, I often make trips to New Seasons simply for the local organic options. A great example of a new addition you made that I am really pleased about is Dave's Killer breads. This is exactly the kind of healthy, truly whole food organic and local option that I want to see crowding the isles at Whole Foods!! Thanks, Ruth

I shop most of the time at the Wellington, Florida store (occasionally at Palm Beach Gardens)and I am THRILLED that you're carrying Kosher Valley poultry as well as 'healthier' Kosher products! PLEASE continue to carry them year round...as those who care about kosher for Passover products, are the ones who look to buy kosher food products whenever they shop.

I believe you have frozen bread with a kosher symbol, it is a Shield with a Star of David inside with a K inside the Star of David. Please let me know the name of the company that gives the kosher supervision, and the name of the rabbi.

Any chance of getting semi-affordable gluten-free matzoh for Passover?

@Libby and Gaye - Some of our stores may carry gluten-free matzo, but it's a hard to find speciality item. A quick search yielded some results for a homemade version if you're interested in experimenting at home: http://iamglutenfree.blogspot.com/2009/01/gluten-free-matzo-recipes.html

@Jackie - our bakery selection varies from store to store, so your best bet will be to check with your local Whole Foods Market for their Passover desserts selection.

@Beverly Ross: Yes, we have visited the Hain poultry operation (that produces Kosher Valley turkeys) and we also have a 3rd party visit and audit the processing and slaughter facility to ensure the food-safety and the animal welfare. Since we don’t allow antibiotics ever, the farmers will need to provide the animals with more space to keep them healthy  (the tighter the space, the more the animals will pick on each other and the more they will have changes to get diseases). We hope this answers all your questions!

Our kosher meat selection varies between stores - so your best bet for these particular products will be to check with your local store. If you don't see what you're looking for, just ask Customer Service and we'll do our best to source a product that both meets our quality standards and fits your needs.
