Food News


THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following news is from the Jewishtelepathicagency.com on May 8, 2013.

Tel Aviv Rabbinate has reversed its decision to introduce mobile barcode scanning at kosher restaurants after pilot tests revealed that haredi [ultra-Orthodox] Jews did not own smartphones. The rabbinate had begun issuing QR or Quick Response bar codes to kosher establishments last week.
"The codes allowed religious customers to access detailed information such as the stringency of the kashrut certification, its expiration date, and the type of cuisine (milk, meat, pareve or treif)." The Haredim, who would be most interested in the information, don’t use smartphones and don’t know what a QR code is.
