Kosher CertificationWhat is Kosher?
Kosher certification is a standalone international quality standard which is increasingly prevalent in the food ingredients and retail sector. Kosher certification can help generate additional sales revenue by providing an avenue to gain access to new markets and customers.
Kosher products require kosher certified ingredients. Ingredient buyers specify kosher knowing that their supplier’s manufacturing process has been independently audited. This gives an extra level of comfort that is not always there with other certifications.
In some supply chains manufacturers of certain ingredients have no choice but to certify for kosher if they are to qualify for inclusion on the buyers list.
Getting Kosher certified is a way to tap into a growing consumer base all over the world. Even non-Jews are embracing kosher foods as a way to make sure they get quality and safe foods. Without such certification these emerging and existing markets remain inaccessible to food product manufacturers.
Kosher certification costs little when compared to the enormous potential of increased sales and revenues that follows.
Kosher symbol on food product immediately projects an image of safety and quality in the food.
The symbol generates trust among buyers who know it signifies compliance of the product with highest standards of kosher food laws.
It is an assurance of quality and integrity of food. It is not just the final food that is certified; the ingredients and how they were sourced and prepared and the process of manufacturing also come under the purview of certification guaranteeing absolute quality.
Kosher certification is the surest way to increase market share and revenues at minimum cost and gain an unimpeachable reputation as a manufacturer of quality foods.
