The KOF-K emblem is the internationally recognized trademark of KOF-K Kosher Certification, one of the foremost kosher certification agencies in the world.
Only those products and services meeting the strictest standards of kashrus (kosher law) are granted pertmission to display the KOF-F K symbol, which is protected under U.S. Federal and international law against unauthorized use. When consumers see the KOF-K kosher symbol on a product, they know they are buying food that has been certified to meet the highest standards of kashrus. In fact, many other kosher certification/supervision organizations rely on KOF-K’s certification in their own product and ingredient lists.
KOF-K is directed by a staff of kosher food production specialists, each an expert in various aspects of the food industry. Flavor chemists, dairy and bakery professionals, meat processing advisers and computer experts are always available for consultation and have deep and broad knowledge of their respective areas of expertise. All kashrus policies are governed by a highly experience and learned Rabbinic committee that reviews and decides all questions of halacha (Jewish law) which may arise.
KOF-K has an international network of regional coordinators and rabbinic representatives, all of them strictly Orthodox in their personal practice and synagogue affiliation. Each company, manufacturer, product, or service seeking KOF-K kosher certification or operating under KOF-K Supervision is carefully monitored by regional coordinators, field supervisors and the staff at KOF-K headquarters. Regional coordinators are based in major American cities, Canada, South and Central America, Australia, Western and Eastern Europe, Asia, Australia and Israel. These representatives conduct frequent visits to major manufacturers and their suppliers at every location where kosher certification and/or supervision is needed. KOF-K considers the confidentiality of all proprietary information as the highest of priorities, and trade secret security is completely is assured.
KOF-K’s reputation for outstanding service to the organizations it supervises and certifies is well known. KOF-K was the first kosher certification to introduce computer technology to the complexities of kashrus supervision/management. In addition to automated inspection tracking, KOF-K has compiled an extensive and comprehensive database of ingredients and ingredient suppliers, fully digitized, and accessible to all companies under KOF-K supervision/certification. This technology has placed KOF-K at the leading edge of contemporary Kosher supervision, raising industry standards to a new high and providing unsurpassed service, responsiveness, and speed.
Totally committed, efficiently organized, fully staffed and technologically advanced, the KOF-K is eager to help you link your products with both the historical tradition of kashrus, and the rapidly expanding world-wide market for kosher products.
