The Business Of Kosher

We know you're in business to do business, and the kosher business is big business. Kosher certification of a product or service provides entry into whole new markets and access to major companies that only buy kosher constituents. Adaptation of a process or product line for kosher certification may be very simple, and we can help you determine the marketability of your product to the kosher market.
KOSHER WORLD MARKET REACH

Over 1/3 of the packaged items in a typical supermarket are kosher certified. The constituents for those consumer products come from all over the world. Kosher certification of chemicals in China and India and almost every other country is common. There are fish processing plants in Alaska and beef processing plants in Argentina. And, products that are kosher are acceptable by the Halal market, which opens an additional expansive customer base. Steady growth at an annual rate of 15% over the last decade has led to an exponential rise in the numbers of products now available to the kosher consumer.

According to data compiled by Lubicom Marketing and Consulting, LLC:
