Kosher consumers are everywhere

They are at hotels, at sports games, in airports and shopping malls. You’ll find them in hospitals as doctors, patients and visitors, and in universities as faculty and students, as travelers for business and pleasure, as consumers seeking catering for events, and of course, choosing products in every aisle of the supermarket. Would you like to tap into this large and growing market?

Kosher symbols sell

The kosher logo is more than a mark of certification. Like symbols for vegan, gluten-free, and recycled content, the kosher logo has become an increasingly important marketing device.

  • A kosher symbol boosts market share.
  • Kosher certification can lead to an increase in a company’s private label business.
  • Supermarkets favor brands with kosher certification for their competitive edge. In fact, a kosher product can win more favorable shelf space.
  • Positioned next to a competing non-kosher brand, a kosher product will outperform by 20%. This data has remained constant even in the smaller cities, this is true across the country.  (Source: Integrated Marketing Communications.)
