Who receives a kosher certificate and for what products?
The kosher sign called “Hechscher“ in Hebrew is important for manufacturers of foods and dietary supplements. Suppliers of ingredients for foods and cosmetics also benefit from the kosher certificate. The kosher sign proves your partners and customers that you are a trustworthy company that consistently use safe raw materials and additives and maintains the highest hygiene standards in the production process.
Today, when over 90% of food on the market being pre-processed, mixed with other products, or filled with additives, an independent kosher certification raises in importance. It assures the followers of the Jewish faith that they can use the product without breaking their religious rules, while for those self-conscious, consumers of organic products, vegetarians and even vegans, the kosher seal is a proof that the product is pure and safe to use, also in terms of animal welfare.
The certification process - three steps to acquire the Kosher certificate
Step 1 - analysis and documentation
The certification process begins with ingredient analysis of the products. To achieve this goal, we need a detailed list of products and a separate list of their ingredients. For the purpose of this analysis, we will send you sample forms which you should fill out completely and return to us. We will identify non-kosher ingredients and recommend matching kosher alternatives.
Additionally, we will need to receive a complete and detailed documentation concerning:
* the exact course of the production process
* description of storing, shipping and packaging
* HACCP plans and CCPs, if there are any
* production flowchart
These documents will allow us to carry out a document audit.
This will allow us to verify whether your products can be provided with a kosher certificate.
Step 2 - on-site audit
If your products can be provided with a kosher certificate, we will be able to carry out an on-site audit. For this purpose, we will agree with you upon a date of the audit, at least two weeks in advance.
Step 3 - the kosher certificate
After the audit, we will immediately issue your Kosher certificates and provide you with your KOSHER logo / label for use on your office equipment, promotional materials and packaging. A kosher certificate must be re-certified after one year.
