KOSHER CERTIFICATION COST
AROUND HOW MUCH DOES KOSHER CERTIFICATION COST?
The fees for Kosher certification is structured to cover the cost of putting in the best kosher certification available, while also keeping the expense to the customer affordable and relatively cheap. Our pricing structure of the certification is designed to allow us to best serve our customers’ needs and requirements while also supporting their continued growth. The cost of the Kosher Certification completely varies by company, based on their specific needs and requirements and many other factors.The simplicity or complexity of the product from a Kosher's perspective plays a very major role in the costs and requirements for the kosher certification and while meat based food products are by far the most complex ones, other Kosher foods require far less intensive activities and hence, the pricing also depends on the food item. You can get in touch with us to put forth your requirements and accordingly we will give you an idea of the price.
DOES THE PRODUCT NEED FULL-TIME OR OCASSIONAL OVERSIGHT IS ENOUGH?
To know this, you will have to get in touch with our company as it is something that we can explain only after hearing you. Let's say for example, a private label food product can sometimes be produced only once a year, and that's why the equipment re-kashering process will take place only annually, that is for once a year. A daily production line for the perishables may need a re-kashering almost every week and we will do that as well if the line is used for non-kosher products. So ultimately, it depends on the kind of food item and accordingly it can be decided if there's a need to keel a full time or occassional oversight only.
HOW MUCH MANPOWER IS INVOLVED IN YOUR PRODUCTION PROCESS?
Some facilities that we provide to our customers require more manpower, time and energy than others. For example, a hifi restaurant's commercial kitchen serving many plates for a single a meal, multiple times a day will of course require a team of at least 10 Kosher supervisors in the process on-site for full time, along with additional attention if it is Passover. On the other hand, an occasional visit to a small olive oil production facility would require only one person for a very small period of time and so, the manpower involved in it will be less. Depending on where exactly you are based, what exactly you are producing, and in how much quantity you are producing, there may be travel or administrative costs also involved in your Kosher certification cost, but trust us, they all tend to be extremely manageable as well as predictable because they are well-balanced by increasing the popularity of your particular product among many types of consumers.
WILL ADDING KOSHER INCREASE THE RETAIL PRICE FOR THE CONSUMER EVEN MORE?
When kosher certification is added to your food products, chances are your consumers will not pay even a penny more for it. Just as you would not find it important to pass on the cost of commissioning to a third party chemical food analysis, the basic insurance, or any other similar service to your customer, Kosher certification cost also does not affect the pricing decisions or create a huge gap in the pricing of original and Kosher products. In fact, most of the producers often find that Kosher actually lowers the cost per unit by increasing the sales as many customers prefer Kosher food products because of its benefits ans safety. And many companies who add kosher certification report that they find it quite easier to place their product with the new retailers and thereby capture more market share.
HOW CAN I KNOW IF KOSHER IS WORTH FOR MY PRODUCTS?
All the Kosher certified products that we provide you with, will eventually display the logo of the certifying agency very visibly on the packaging of the food product. Hence, any one can notice it that it is Kosher certified. Also note that the Kosher certification for individual products takes time as it is not an easy task. As we add more Kosher certified food products there will normally be a specified period of time where the logo of the certification will not appear on the label by that time. For the most recent certification status of the products, please visit the page of the products on our website as we will immediately update a product’s website page to reflect its latest kosher status.Basically, adding Kosher in most cases will not be noticeable in your pricing structure but the added value that a particular food product is Kosher certified will bring in credibility, large market share, new customers, and additional sales as well.
