 KOSHER MICHIGAN JOINS KOSHERFEST AS  1ST NON-ORTHODOX KOSHER CERTIFICATION AGENCY

West Bloomfield, MI — Kosherfest 2013 will take place October 29-30 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, NJ, and will feature special events and programs to mark its 25th anniversary as the largest annual meeting place and product resource for the kosher trade industry. (www.kosherfest.com). This year Kosher Michigan, a kosher certification agency launched by Rabbi Jason Miller in 2008, will be an exhibitor. This marks the first time a kosher certification agency owned by a Conservative rabbi will have a booth and exhibit at Kosherfest.

Kosherfest is the world’s largest kosher-certified products trade show and annual meeting place for the industry’s top kosher supermarket, restaurant and foodservice buyers. According to Rabbi Miller, director of Kosher Michigan (KM), “My certification agency has grown over the past five plus years and becoming a part of Kosherfest for the first time is a milestone for me.”

Kosher Certifying Agencies at Kosherfest 2013Menachem Lubinsky, co-producer and founder of Kosherfest said, “In the last 25 years we have seen the number of kosher-certified items grow from a few thousand to almost 200,000. Major food companies have changed their ingredients and equipment in order to get kosher certification, and consumers, both Jewish and non-Jewish, seek the kosher symbol on the food products they buy more than ever before.”

“As a non-Orthodox rabbi it has certainly been an uphill battle to gain acceptance in the kosher certification industry,” Miller explains. “However, it has been a worthwhile endeavor for me. Today Kosher Michigan certifies over fifty businesses and that number is growing each month. KM has expanded outside of Michigan and the KM hechsher (kosher symbol) is found on products sold throughout the U.S. and Canada.”

Attendees to Kosherfest represent a broad spectrum of the industry, from chain and independent restaurants, caterers and specialty markets, to grocery/supermarket, big box and club chains, independent retailers, manufacturing ingredient buyers, distributors and buying agents, among many other industry professionals. Kosher Michigan will be a co-exhibitor at Kosherfest with Excalibur Seasonings, a large spice company in Pekin, Illinois that has been certified by Kosher Michigan for the past few years.

Kosher Michigan was founded in 2008 by Rabbi Jason Miller to promote the observance of the Jewish dietary laws. KM is endorsed by the International Rabbinical Assembly and under the rabbinic advisement of Rabbi Joel Roth, a world renowned kashrut expert. Rabbi Miller seeks to increase the availability of kosher products as well as to keep the cost of kosher products at affordable prices.
