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 IsraelHaYom and JPost posted on July 22, 2015.

An amendment to the kashrut law that would bar restaurant owners and food producers from presenting kashrut certificates by any organization other than the Chief Rabbinate is approved by Ministerial Committee on Legislation. This Bill will not affect imported foods.
"The text of the bill approved by the Ministerial Committee on Sunday states that a restaurant will be not be able to indicate in any way that it is kosher, even if it does not use the word 'kosher' and even if it states in its alternative kashrut certificate or sign that its supervision is not from the chief rabbinate. "The one concession in the bill itself to independent kashrut licensing authorities is a cause stating that a restaurant could display a prominent sign written and authorized only by the restaurant itself and no other body saying that the establishment is “self-inspected and without any supervision.”
