South Africa: Some Kee Wings Cheeses Now Certified as Kosher

From the Beth Din of Johannesburg on February 11, 2016: A few weeks ago, the Kashrut division of the UOS informed the community of a number of cheese products which displayed the Beth Din logo without authorisation, made by a company called "KEE Wings" and distributed in airport lounges across the country. We are happy to announce that the company now employs a full time Mashgiach and is now sourcing kosher cheeses for 5 products in its range which are now certified kosher (Milchik, not Chalav Yisroel) under the Beth Din of Johannesburg. The company has been authorised to put the logo on the following products in its range;

  • Cheddar
  • Camembert
  • Blue Mould Cheese
  • 6 Month Matured Cheddar
  • KEE Belle
It is important to remember that the company do still produce non-kosher cheeses which will not display the Beth Din logo. Only those cheeses with the logo can be now eaten. The certified product has a Beth Din sticker that was placed by the mashgiach.

The following South African kashrus alerts are from the Beth Din of Johannesburg on January 11, 2016.

"This is a reminder that the cheeses manufactured by "Kee Ingredients" displaying the name "Kee Wings" on their packaging, contain an unauthorised Beth Din logo and cannot be eaten.
These cheeses are commonly found in hospitality venues such as airport lounges and are currently under investigation.
Their cheese range includes the following types of cheeses, none of which are currently acceptable:

  • Blue
  • Cheddar 6 month matured
  • Gouda
  • Belle
  • Camembert
We are working to resolve this issue as soon as possible."
