Kosher is a term originally used to denote that which is "fit" and "proper". Most often, it is used to describe foods that are permitted to be eaten by people who observe Jewish dietary law.
Today nearly $34 billion of food products are produced as Kosher in the USA. $3 billion in direct sales are sold each year to over 8 million consumers who seek out a Kosher label. Kosher food service increased 18% during the past twelve months. The total number of consumers is growing at an annual rate of 15%, all because 'Kosher' is identified with quality, health and fine preparation.
Kosher Supervision of America (KSA) is a not-for-profit agency and the largest recognized and accepted Orthodox kosher certification agency based in the US.
The KSA symbol is a firm guarantee to all consumers that the products bearing the symbol are in full compliance with the most demanding of kosher standards.
KSA enjoys the support and cooperation of hundreds of synagogues and rabbis representing tens of thousands of Kosher consumers. Servicing hotel chains, supermarket chains, food manufacturers, food packers & distributors, restaurants, caterers, independent grocers and bakeries, the KSA symbol can be found on grocery store shelves across the nation and around the world.
