What is Kosher?

 Our Certification Process

Kosher and trust is synonymous. When a product has a kosher stamp on it, especially one with a highly visible certification such as MK, the consumer knows the ingredients are accurate and authentic.

There are 1.5 million customers who buy kosher, 3.5 million non-Jews who buy kosher and 195,000 kosher products with more being added on a daily basis.

Over the past twenty-five years kosher food has developed into a $12.5 billion industry. People look to kosher symbol with the knowledge that the health and safety standards are impeccable, dependable and that there are no hidden ingredients derived from dairy or animal bi-products.

‘All-natural’ processed products also have a visible kosher symbol on the package. This is because the natural dyes and flavors listed in the ingredients may come from non-kosher species of insects and fish.

The Rabbinic supervisors add an extra level of cleanliness to the plants they monitor. As well, they ensure that products labeled dairy-free or gluten-free are in fact what they purport to be.
