Meet and greet
The London Board for Shechita has paid tribute to the man who put it on a sound financial footing.
David Rose, who is making aliyah after seven years as director, said that when he arrived, the meat authority owed £80,000 to the banks and £60,000 to other creditors.
Now arrears were less than £10,000, there were no outstanding creditors and it had £800,000 in cash and investments, “earning money which keep shechitah fees down each year”.
Shechitah fees charged for meat production were now lower than in 2005, he pointed out.
