Choosing a kosher agency is a lot like choosing a financial advisor: the relationship is built on trust, ethics, quality and professionalism. Here are some specific factors to consider when searching for kosher certification:

Knowledge.

Ask about an agency’s knowledge of your particular market, product or service.

Experience.

Can the agency problem-solve? Execution can present new challenges with each company. You want to be sure your organization can best meet your needs.

Acceptability.

Consider the kosher agency’s acceptability among consumers and other top certification agencies.

Industry.

Consider how the agency’s product profile impacts your own brand. A recognized authority such as OK Kosher will reassure you and your customers.

Integrity.

Avoid an agency that looks for shortcuts. If a supervising rabbi dismisses your concerns without the proper homework, we suggest looking elsewhere.

Fee structure.

Be sure you fully understand your agency’s fee structure. Also discuss any costs associated with meeting your ongoing needs.

What are the factors which determine the cost of the annual Kosher certification fee?

The short answer to this question is:

  1. The location of your manufacturing and packaging facilities.
  2. Whether you have a dedicated facility to these products or employ a contract manufacturer.
  3. The ingredients and processing aids used in your products.
  4. The production processes by which your products are made.

We therefore, provide an analysis for each company based on its individual circumstances.
