The Kashrut Authority has introduced and helped a number of companies (for example, Fonterra, George Weston) expand their distribution in that market. In 2010, Mountain Bread (produced for No Worries Natural Foods) and certified by The Kashrut Authority was announced the winner within two competitive categories: ‘Best in Show’ and ‘Best New Baked Good, Bread, Grain or Cereal’. Today, as a result, their product line is selling worldwide.
“Gaining Kosher Certification with The Kashrut Authority in Sydney, Australia, was meaningful on many levels. Once this was attained, the KA was able to facilitate our application to achieve OK Kosher Certification in the United States. With both highly respected kosher agencies approving Mountain Bread, we went on to win two prestigious awards at Kosherfest in New Jersey. We feel confident that buyers worldwide recognise these certifications and shoppers trust these certified products. Securing this, including pas yisroel, has meant extra effort and expense for all involved but the KA has made it a pleasure. They amaze us with their diligence, responsiveness and how they come through quickly and consistently each and every time. Thank you to Rabbi Gutnick, Rabbi Groner and the team at the KA!”

Similarly, the uptake of Real Foods Corn Thins as a result of a previous showcase at Kosherfest (once KA Certification was achieved) has been phenomenal.
“Here at Real Foods, we export both Corn Thins and Rice Thins to the U.S. and Israel – KA Kosher Certification is a must and enables us to grow sales in these locations. In fact, it is beneficial in all of our markets, as it offers access to consumers who choose to purchase kosher products.
Furthermore, Kosher Certification is generally recognised as an additional indication of good manufacturing practice, giving customers an extra level of comfort that Real Foods products are trustworthy, of the highest quality and safe to eat.”
