For your product or plant to be certified kosher, every ingredient—and the way in which it is processed—must be kosher compliant. Here’s a guided look at the certification process.

TIMELINE TO KOSHER: The time between application and certification depends on applicant response time. Our staff is committed to making the process as smooth and as swift as possible.

What to expect during the OK Kosher certification process:

1. Application

Your application is the first active step toward certification. The OK Kosher team will maintain your company information in the strictest confidence.

2. Coordination

After you apply, a Rabbinic Coordinator who is an expert in your field of production will contact you to discuss your production process and outline the basics of compliance.

3. Initial Visit

A thorough inspection of your production facilities will be conducted. The procedures necessary to certify your facilities will be detailed at this time.

4. Contract

A contract and fee structure will be drawn up and signed, confirming the terms and requirements to obtain and maintain kosher compliance.

5. Certification

We will issue kosher certificates granting you the right to display the registered OK symbol on certified products.


Your product is certified kosher by the world’s most trusted agency. With your approval, your certified products will be listed in the OK Kosher Food Guide, on Twitter (@OKKosher) and in our various other print and web publications.
