When your product or establishment is certified Kosher, shoppers identify that you comply with a exacting policy of kosher food laws, including cleanliness, clarity and excellence.
Kosher certification is one of the most significant steps you can take for your growing food business. It improves your capability to market your products and allows you to use our Logo to identify your product as kosher. It is of the highest kosher standard and is accepted by all sectors of the domestic market. It is not however appropriate for export purposes. If you need export certification please fill out the suitable application.
Kosher laws are more complex than they seem, mainly now that modern technology has come into play. Take for example, potato chips, which you’d think would be kosher since they aren’t made from foods forbidden by the Torah. Potato chips can essentially be considered non-kosher if they are fried in vegetable oil that was pasteurized and deodorized with equipment that has been used for tallow production.
According to the laws, the only types of meat that may be eaten are cattle and game that have “cloven hooves” and “chew the cud.” If an animal species fulfills only one of these conditions (for instance the pig, which has split hooves but does not chew the cud, or the camel, which chews the cud, but does not have split hooves), then its meat may not be eaten.
Examples of kosher animals in this category are bulls, lambs, springbok, cows, sheep, veal and goats.
