The Kosher food market is the fastest growing segment of the food industry, expanding by more than 10% every year. Studies show that Kosher products sell up to 20% more than non-Kosher products sold side-by-side in a supermarket. Reasons why products that are Kosher certified outsell their non-Kosher competitors include:
● Kosher certification makes products accessible to a broader market.
Kosher food laws meet the religious dietary rules of one-fifth of the world’s population. In addition to Jews,
Muslims and observers of other faiths can also buy Kosher foods to fulfill their religious obligations.
● Kosher certification attests to a higher level of food quality.
Consumers know that Kosher foods are produced according to strict quality control guidelines.
● Kosher certification gives customers with health issues a higher level of confidence.
