Why go Kosher
Consciousness about purity and wholesomeness of food is increasing by the day. It is not just Jews who prefer Kosher; even people from other communities search for and buy only Kosher labeled foods. Food is produced by giant companies as an industry with the accent on volume production and sales. Use of chemicals, hormones and even DNA modification has become common. How damaging these foods are is only now being realized and this drives people to look for natural, pure and organic foods that have been prepared according to well established traditions. The market for Kosher foods is expanding all over the world.
More people across America, South America, Asia, Middle East and Europe as well as Africa, regardless of their religious affiliation, choose Kosher foods. Kosher foods are considered healthy and pure.
People also realize that meat products are not prepared following best and humane practices. Vegetables and fruits can be infused with pesticides and harmful chemicals that have a severe impact on health. Kosher foods are grown organically and can be trusted to be free of harmful chemicals. People are more aware about and insist on knowing about origin of foods that Kosher certification gives. There is accountability and traceability in Kosher foods. Foods bearing Kosher label are safe

For food producers and manufacturers, Kosher certification also brings in value addition and a rising demand from advanced markets.
