The Kosher Food Market
The Kosher food industry represents a multi-billion dollar market worldwide, catering to a variety of consumers. The term “Kosher” applies specifically to Jewish dietary laws and other religious and secular groups that require a Kosher dietary regimen. Kosher products appeal to, vegetarians, the Islamic world, Seventh Day Adventists, and consumers who look for a Kosher symbol on the foods they purchase. Once products such as Philippine snacks, fruits, and ingredients get kosher-certified, the company can sell them to millions of kosher food consumers worldwide.

STAR-K is proud of its reputation for providing prompt, friendly and professional service to both kosher consumers and members of the food industry. Across the world, STAR-K Certification has helped companies with multiple plants, locations, and operations employing uniform standards in implementing kosher programs.
