The NFC Apple K Kosher label meets the highest kosher standards and provides the consumer with an enhanced purchasing choice because the product/products are naturally certified. This means there is no GMO technology in the raw materials manufacturing supply chain or packaging and no use of chemicals, dyes or other ingredients that are not naturally occurring.
Below are the steps to becoming kosher certified. However, please note that every facility is unique and some steps may not be applicable to your situation. Therefore, a thorough on-site investigation is required to establish a kosher certified protocol.
NFC KOSHER CERTIFICATION PROCESS
1. A confidentiality agreement is signed with no cost or obligation to you.
2. NFC will provide an application for you to submit that includes the following important pieces of information:
- An ingredient list for each product to be certified, their manufacturing source with name, phone number and kosher certificate.
- A schematic of operation/flow chart of production for each production line. This must include a list of ALL equipment in your facility (even those that potential kosher products are not produced on).
- A general schedule of production for products for which you are requesting kosher certification. Is your entire facility expected to be kosher certified or only a percentage of your products?
3. NFC conducts research on the kosher status of each ingredient. Your company is notified of ingredients that are approved for certification and/or those that will jeopardize the kosher status of your project.
4. A pre-approved ingredient source list is developed, finalized and provided to obtain the kosher certification.
There a no fees or costs for steps 1 – 4.
5. You enter into a contract for certification with NFC and provide a deposit which must be received by NFC before the first inspection visit.
