Portland, Maine (PRWEB) October 06, 2014
The 2014 “Kosher Supervisor of the Year” award, presented by KASHRUS Magazine will, once again, be presented at the upcoming 2014 Kosherfest, the world’s largest business to business trade show for the kosher industry. The award is sponsored by Kosherfest and will be presented on Tuesday, November 11 at 12:30pm.
The “Kosher Supervisor of the Year“ award is an annual award by KASHRUS Magazine, to provide kosher supervisors (Mashgichim) with the recognition deserved for their important role in the kosher food industry. This is KASHRUS Magazine‘s 4th year presenting the award. The recipient is chosen from nominations submitted by leading certifying agencies. The award honors the winner’s dedication to maintaining the integrity of the kosher foods market, and in addition to the honor, the winner also receives a $1,000 cash gift.
The kosher supervisor (Mashgiach) is the vital link in the chain that ensures that a food product is correctly prepared kosher. A Mashgiach (Hebrew: משגיח, pl. משגיחים, mashgichim, lit. "Supervisor") is a Jew who supervises the kashrut status of a kosher establishment. A Mashgiach may supervise any type of food service establishment including slaughterhouses, food manufacturers, hotels, caterers, nursing homes, restaurants, butchers, groceries, or cooperatives. The Mashgiach usually works as the on-site supervisor and inspector, representing the kashrut organization or a local rabbi, who actually makes the policy decisions for what is or is not acceptably kosher.
KASHRUS Magazine, the periodical for the kosher consumer and trade, has participated in Kosherfest since its inception in 1988. Kosher trade manufacturers, merchants and marketers subscribe to KASHRUS Magazine for valuable information for their business and personal life. An interview with the winner, and coverage of the award presentation at Kosherfest, will be featured in the December issue of KASHRUS Magazine.
