Kosher pareve is a very desirable label to have, and with a solid marketing approach, it can upscale your vegetarian and non-dairy logos. The kosher pareve label can act as a tool for the dairy-conscious consumer and sets the product on a higher level of certification than simply writing dairy-free. The meticulous detail of kosher certification takes out all the guesswork when identifying specific allergens or undesired ingredients for many consumers.
