[Chodosh] Urgent message from the Guide to Chodosh to Yoshon producers and mashgichim

October 16, 2018 from Yoseph Herman, The Guide to Chodosh, Hot Line 718-305-5133. Email: yherman@earlthlink.net

The deadline for information to be included in the forthcoming Guide to Chodosh is Oct. 25, only 9 days from today. As we had stated many times over the past months, any Yoshon hashgocho certification can only be included in the full Guide if it is received by Oct 25. As of now, we have not yet received such certification from many packaged food producers, and local establishments such as bakeries, pizza shops, etc. We do not plan to publish any further Guides or updates, unless some urgent unexpected developments come up. For the sake of the Yoshon consumers and the business interests of the Yoshon food producers, it is essential that urgent action be taken by the mashgichim and hashgocho organizations responsible for Yoshon supervision. (Please note that the Guide is published in print and by email as a public service. There is no charge for any listing in the Guide.) Information sent by the companies directly can not be accepted. It must come from the mashgichim directly. Please send such certification by email to yherman20@gmail.com, or by fax to 888-755-7590.
