“We obtained kosher certification to better serve our industrial customers who require, or prefer, kosher certified packaging”
Alpharetta, Georgia (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Grayling Industries, a manufacturer and distributor of industrial packaging and environmental safety products announced that the Guardian line of IBC liners for food products has recently been certified by the Star-K organization as Kosher.
Per Mr. Raymond Joyner, Director of Sales for Grayling, “The kosher certification process involves a thorough review of all of the ingredients used in the manufacture of our product, as well as, the equipment that the product is manufactured on and the actual manufacturing process”.
Kosher rules are based on Jewish dietary laws found in the Torah. The Torah does not specifically state the reasons for these laws, however many believe that the primary purpose, other than religious, is hygiene. Today, the word kosher is commonly accepted English slang meaning; proper, legitimate or acceptable.
Per Mr. Joyner, “We applied for and obtained kosher certification to better serve our industrial customers who require, or prefer, kosher certified packaging”.
Star-K, in Baltimore Maryland, is a non-profit organization that provides kosher certification services to companies all over the world. The Star-K personnel who conduct the reviews are highly trained in the laws of kosher, as well as, in food technology, the food processing industry, packaging and ingredients. Once certification has been granted, periodic visits are conducted by Star-K Rabbinic field representatives to monitor and audit compliance with the terms of the certification agreement.
