Kosher Certification is Simple

To become Kosher certified, your company must use Kosher ingredients, follow Kosher manufacturing practices and be inspected by a Kosher certification agency. In this article, we will review everything you need to know about the process of Kosher certification.

Understanding Kosher Dietary Laws

Kosher dietary laws are based on Biblical principles governing food and are intended for those of the Jewish faith who keep a holy and pure lifestyle. Kosher products must meet certain requirements such as being free from certain animal parts, or avoiding specific food mixtures such as meat and milk.

Hire a Kosher Certification Agency

To have your products certified as Kosher, you need to reach out to a Kosher certification agency, like EarthKosher. The agency will review your ingredients, production process and your facility to ensure that you meet all the requirements for Kosher certification.
They will work with you to make any necessary adjustments to your ingredients or production process to ensure that your products meet Kosher standards.

Get Your Documents in Order

The Kosher certification agency will review your production flow charts, ingredients, QA program and record keeping. Once you have provided all the necessary information and documentation, the Kosher certification agency will conduct a short review. They will make recommendations on any necessary changes you need to make to your production process to comply with Kosher standards. At times, you may need to Kosherize or dedicate equipment, change your ingredient sources or adjust your production methods.

Secondary Inspection and Certification

Your Kosher certification agency will visit your facility to review everything we have discussed onsite. Following the successful audit, you will be awarded Kosher certification and receive a Kosher symbol to mark your products as Kosher. The Kosher Certificate is valid for one year after which it can be renewed. Throughout the year, you remain in touch with your contact at the Kosher Certification Agency.
