Kosher certification symbols represent the stamp of kosher approval by a kosher agency or community rabbi. This rabbinical symbol is referred to as a ‘hechsher’ and is the universal Hebrew name for a kosher certification symbol found on store shelves worldwide.
An accepted orthodox kosher certification symbol confirms that all the ingredients are kosher, well documented, and the facility was thoroughly inspected. It also means there is an ongoing relationship with the kosher certification agency and rabbinic team to update product documentation and continued site inspections on an ongoing basis.
Why so Many Symbols?
There are kosher agencies and communities all over the world and hundreds of kosher symbols. Each symbol on a package represents international rabbinic agencies, local community kosher supervision, or specialty kosher certification agencies. When choosing kosher certification, it is most beneficial to research the agency behind the symbol to find the one that best suits your brand and company. Some important qualities to look for are:
- Accepted Kosher Certification
- Affordable, Transparent Prices
- Reliable, Personal Customer Service
- A Good Fit for your Specific Needs and Products
- Other Certifications Offered by the Agency (Vegan, Gluten Free for example)
