It will make them lose business because all the caterers and food-services that paid them to help check difficult products, will not be going there anymore.

They will lose business when the "Rabbi Frost List" gets wind of this and removes GG from the list.

I was in GG today. The place was not nearly as full as it used to be. (But that's not because of the produce. That's probably because people like me started shopping at Bingo, and my neighbors are ordering from Moishes.) But they had no checked Romain lettuce, and people were not happy. The rest of their pre-checked stuff was probably either repackaged Postive, or just buggy.
Most caterers are not under the Vaad so most likely would not need the same standards for checking.

I was in GG Woodmere this afternoon (Sunday) and they had checked romaine. Are more people taking advatabage of Bingo and moishes? Yep, probably. But I would say 99% of shoppers do not care that this bug checker left.

People will say chosen which is indeed very good. I happen to love wok tov as well. Can't go wrong with either imo.

wok tov is hit or miss, sometimes great sometimes terrible, never in the middle. Chosen is always solid. I guess it comes down to whether you are a risk taker or not

Really? Sometimes the chicken is very chewy, almost like they rewarmed it several times. Ive discussed with others and people generally agree. But when its good then its really good

I can only speak for myself and the people I know that shop there but not a single person I have spoken to even knew that GG had "the top bug checker."

If there are restaurants and stores that are paying GG to check their produce then why cant Rabbi Green continue to do that and have no affiliation with GG? What did GG bring to the table?
I didn't know, until I read this, that he left, but I was quite aware of his effectiveness.

I'll probably stick to Pos-Tiv now.

I didn't know they had a " famous bug expert checker"  but none of the checked companies are comparable to GGs in freshness, and about the kosherness of it, as long as it has the Vaad symble on it I'm ok with that.

lol . you must not be from FR/FT. whether its actually good or not , wok tov is in the blood of those (in my circles) who grow up there. i dont think there was ever a time i visited and didnt have WT.

True. I've lived in the FTs for the last 7 years. Having grown up in NNJ, I would say the best by far is Chopstix in Teaneck
