What is Kosher?
Kosher means "clean, eatable or fresh food" in English but in Hebrew language Kosher means "suitable" or "unacceptable". Kosher means "foods are appropriate to the law or the Jewish's diet, can be approved by people who believed in Jewish food".
Kosher comes from the Bible, it means "proper" or "acceptable". Meat slaughtered according to religious rituals is called Kosher.
Kosher foods include 3 types: meat, buttermilk, meat-free and milk-free foods. One of Kosher doctrines is the clear division between meat-originated products and buttermilk-originated ones. Meat and buttermilk are not allowed to cook together. Chefs must have cooking utensils and different dishes, simultaneously, there are separate preparation areas for meat and buttermilk. The third foods are meat-free and buttermilk-free ones.

Process and procedure of issuing Kosher certificate.
We need to base on factory's kosher certification request form for units who desire to be issued Kosher certificate.

Once plants meet requirements, they will approve of Kosher certificates as well as registering for Kosher global association. Plants are allowed to attach "Kosher" logo on all products of plants.
