Trying to figure out what the big deal is with the "ZNT List"
Its basically Eida, Rubin, Landau, Badatz Tzfas, A local Hechsher in Chaifa and Ashdod + ONE place each in TLV, Hertziliya, Zichron
Oh, and you can eat in Ikea (but no other Kehilos place ??? )

It's sold as a comprehensive list of acceptable places across the country that they checked out for Chutznikim...

or is he saying the Eida, Rubin, Landau places not on his list are not acceptable?

I thought he also has a few Agudas Yisroel places which he personally recommends (like Sheyan)

Does @yfr bachur or anyone else here know what the hechsher is of Aroma at Hebrew U-Mount Scopus?
The one at the kotel is petach tikvah I am wondering if it is the same. I tried calling but no answer.

I sent them a message on their customer service page. We'll see if they answer "within 3 business days (!)".

I was led to understand, three things:
1. Pikuach (oversight) is NOT on the level of OU, OK and the like.
2. Although the theoretical standard is better, practically there is no one who decides what standard they must keep. The mashgiach might change his mind from one day to the next and no one can nay-say him.
3. As to what can go wrong, the main diff between US and IL is the requirement of mitzvos hatluyos b'aretz for fruit and veggies.

As has been discussed many times above there is no right or wrong unless you give an exact list of what you do eat in the states
In general parve and milchig are more accepted then meat but even then id depends on the exact community

I see thanks so:
1. No mashgiach tmidi required in IL for rabanut mehadrin?
2. the mashgiach in IL tend to change standards at whim?
3. Isnt rabanut mehadrin makpid on a decent level on trumos, masros?

In theory at least, they can have great official standards but inadequate supervision of them.

I see thanks so:

2. the mashgiach in IL tend to change standards at whim?
3. Isnt rabanut mehadrin makpid on a decent level on trumos, masros?
1 generally most heimush places in the US don't have tmidi eitherway
In Jerusalem mehadrin (at least for dairy) you do not need tmidi only at least 1 fully שומר שבת  person who will close ovens etc
2 this is somewhat true (again everywhere) but when it means is that often they will take into account what the product in question is how complicated it is to produce what in contains versus a blanket yes or no based on who supervised the product
3 in Jerusalem there are only about 3 distributors who deal with mehadrin produce
Generally the mehadrin list is almost the exact list of rav efrati and rav rubin as such if the delivery was mehadrin you are not relying on the mashgiach to do anything with trumah and masros
Wasn't asked but in Jerusalem almost all leaves are greenhouse (even in many rabanut stam places) so that is not a major issue
once again I am not advocating for them just explaining their standards and the logic of why people rely on them
