I don't know if they have a specific relationship, but they are big enough (in Israel) to import things on their own, rather than rely on distributors.
But Osem is not something they would be importing to Israel.

Right, but even though they only have one store (currently) in the US, I wouldn't put it beyond them to start their own import where they believe it makes sense for them. In Israel they were in a fight with Osem for a while, and were selling Osem products branded for the Arab market, bypassing whatever standard distribution channel exists there.

it looked like they brought Osem direct from Israel to Bingo when I was there. 10+ feet of an aisle had the top 2 shelves full of cases of Osem mini-mandlach, and the bottom 2 shelves, also 10+ feet full of their "BluPantry" mini-mandlach (cheaper). Bought a few of both brands to compare -- very good.

From what I understand is their shipping things to Israel then bringing it back thus bypassing exclusive distribution rights...
What they did with haolam was buy 20000 pieces of American cheese to be delivered through the year and paid in full upfront.. they couldn't refuse the prices he insisted on.. but they have no intention of doing so in the future...

got it. Is there a specific relationship with Bingo and Osem? What about other brands, etc...?

I don't know if they have a specific relationship, but they are big enough (in Israel) to import things on their own, rather than rely on distributors.
I heard that the fight Osem had with other ad, was specifically Bingo related, because Bingo bypassed Osem USA, & they imported themselves.

After Chanukah materna that belongs to Osem was on sale in all Israeli chain stores for 30 NIS (instead of 50-60), & Osher ad didn't have it on sale.

I heard this with another distributor, that he sold their products below their retail price, and they checked and saw the barcode/routing numbers that it was from Israel. They warned him of he does this again, they won't sell to Osher Ad anymore

What a shame... The distributers think that we Americans need to pay more.
The company (let's say Osem) makes 50 on each item they sell to Osher ad, so why do they think that items that they sell for the American market they need to make $1 on????? (If they wouldn't make more, then it wouldn't bother them that Bingo ships it themselves)

Hence the term Grey Market

I have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success. Great things come from hard work
