We are working with clients and vendors to Kosherize products and services for the benefit of tourism and local economies. Our clients are food manufacturers seeking to expand into the Kosher market place and hotels that cater Jewish events and tourists as well as to consumers that rely upon the high standards of kosher certification for Halal and other dietary needs.
Balkan Kosher is a branch of Balkan Jewish Communities, a non-profit organization
Benefits of Becoming Kosher Certified
A kosher certified ingredient or product could very well make the difference between making or losing sales to another food processor or importer. Many companies maintain kosher certification because it makes their product more marketable. Many companies, processors, importers and distributors throughout Europe, the Balkans and Turkey are kosher certified and will buy only kosher certified raw materials and products for their own manufacturing and sales.
Areas that have strong Jewish/Israeli tourism are also markets for kosher foods. There has been a steadily growing Israeli tourism industry throughout the Balkan countries especially since Balkan Kosher has made kosher food more accessible to hotels and for catered events
Retail Sales and Exports
Not only Jewish people seek kosher products. In fact, in Russia and the USA, the majority of kosher products are consumed by non-Jews. There are many reasons for this, such as the desire for a certifiable pure product, reliable food allergy content, and vegetarian and vegan verification. For the large Muslim Halal market, kosher is permitted; and there is often a desire among Christians to eat the diet of Jesus.
Countries with large Jewish populations have viable kosher markets. These countries are: Israel, USA, Mexico, Argentina, UK, France, Russia and Australia and more.
The Kosher marketplace is one more aspect of the food market. And in order to compete within that market, a food processor must obtain the services of a Kosher Food Consultation and Certification agency.
