Korean Gov't to foster halal, kosher industries

July 7, 2016: The The Korea Times

The (South) Korean Government announced that it will provide administrative and technical support to food and comsmetic industries to assist them in obtaining kosher and halal certification.
"To nurture the kosher industries, the government said it will first focus on expanding an understanding of the kosher market among domestic companies. So far, only about 25 companies have earned kosher certification on items such as kimchi, rice pasta and salt, which the government has attributed to lack of information on kosher foods."
"In order to address this, the government will provide food makers with kosher glossaries and lists of companies processing those. Also, it will support kosher food makers to join Kosherfest, the world's largest and most-attended kosher-certified products trade show."
