Kosher.com announced that it has signed a number of valuable agreements and partnerships while participating in the Kosherfest® food show and the International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show® (IH/M&RS), both which were held mid-November at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.

“Frankly, the response was overwhelming,” said Bernard Fischlewitz, Kosher.com’s representative.

“Everyone was extremely impressed by all the options that Kosher.com has to offer. Butcher, bakery, grocery, wines, prepared meals, just to name a few of the twenty-two departments already on the site, Kosher.com has something to offer everyone. Even the pickiest chefs found kosher gourmet products they simply can’t get anywhere else. They didn’t realize that we offer close to 15,000 items on our site!”

More than six thousand people attended Kosherfest ’05, making this year’s show the biggest in its 17-year history. Exhibitors and buyers from more than 20 countries participated at the show.

“Kosherfest gave our vendors and suppliers a chance to sit down with us to discuss new and better ways to promote their products to the kosher marketplace,” said Fischlewitz. “With these new agreements in place we will begin to carry a lot more inventory in our fulfillment center, allowing for quicker turnover of our best selling items. A number of the larger kosher food manufacturers are just now realizing that Kosher.com is their best link to the consumer, both from a retail and wholesale standpoint. Nothing beats the internet when it comes to getting your message out.”

Examples of agreements signed during the show include those with Ruthie & Gussie's, makers of the award winning Latke Batter (http://store.ruthieandgussies.com/), and A & B Famous, producers of the finest gefilte fish (http://www.gefiltefish.com/).

”We structured our relationship with those companies to allow consumers to come to our site from theirs if they wish to sample their products. Manufacturers are just not set up to handle orders from the public who crave their products but cannot find them locally. Their websites link to ours so every customer is taken care of; no order is too big or small,” Fischlewitz explained.

The International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show®, the premier trade event for the hospitality industry, was just as successful for Kosher.com.

“The IH/M&RS allowed us to expand our presence in that arena,” said Fischlewitz. “We have in the past supplied major chains, including The Hyatt, The Omni, The Ritz Carlton, The Hilton and The Four Seasons with meals for their guests, and our ever-expanding line of both perishable and non-perishable products are a perfect fit for the hotel and motel industry.

“Hospitality companies can vastly increase their customer base by offering a full kosher menu to their guests. Kosher food is sought after by those who follow a kosher diet as well as vegetarians, people seeking Halal food, people with allergies, and those who understand that kosher food is in many ways better.”

Kosher.com also impressed conference goers with its flexible ordering system and its availability day or night to produce almost any menu to be delivered fresh and on time.
