Why Get Certified Kosher?
The kosher market is the fastest growing segment of the food industry—valued at $13 billion and expanding by more than 10 percent each year. Placed side-by-side on the shelf, kosher products sell 20% better than competing non-kosher brands.1
What is driving this growth?
- Quality: 3 of 5 shoppers buy kosher for higher quality and increased food safety.2 Having your products certified indicates that they have undergone rigorous inspections and have been produced at the peak of kosher values.
- Faith: The laws of kosher satisfy the religious dietary rules of one-fifth of the world’s population. Indeed, religious Jews, Muslims and many other faithful worldwide buy kosher to fulfill their religious obligations.
- Health: People with health restrictions, such as food allergies, buy kosher because the certification process ensures that nothing that’s not supposed to be in a product has gotten in.
Going kosher puts your product in this market
In 2012, a standard American supermarket carried an average of 19,000 kosher products, and no wonder: recent studies showed that more than 12 million shoppers purchase kosher exclusively or very often.
The diversity of Kosher products has also expanded greatly. Hundreds of thousands of products, from canned staples to gourmet cuisine, mass-produced flavors and hand-crafted baked goods, display the confidence of the OK Kosher symbol.
