The SKS logo has become an increasingly important marketing device which generates additional revenues by expanding the size of the market. Supermarkets favor brands with SKS certification because it gives the product a competitive edge that makes it sell faster. That also means that SKS certification can lead to an increase in a company’s private label business.
Going kosher is an investment your company makes in order to increase market reach and share. We are ready to support you in any way we can in achieving your goals.
Complete and send your application back to the SKS office. You may do this online by filling out our application form and returning it by fax or by email. The application asks for logistical information about your company and your plant, as well as a list of the products you want certified and their ingredients.
A Rabbi will be assigned to handle your application. This Rabbi will be your designated point person at the SKS, and will be available to answer your questions, address your needs and guide you through the certification process.
A qualified Rabbi will visit your plant to observe your operation and the feasibility of certifying your products. (There is a processing fee and a travel expense fee that is billed prior to this inspection.) The Rabbi will tour your plant and file a written report to SKS headquarters.
Your application and inspection report will be reviewed by A Rabbi who will advise you whether or not the SKS can grant certification. In some instances, some system modifications may be required for certification to be awarded.
You may then submit your new product labels carrying the SKS symbol for our final approval. CONGRATULATIONS! You have now joined a family of companies which proudly carry the world’s Kindest, most efficient and most widely known Kosher trademark, the SKS.
SKS will draft a contract which includes all of requirements of the SKS for kosher certification. If acceptable to you the contract is signed and returned to the SKS office, and a letter of certification is sent to you.
The well known kosher organization SKS Shatz Kosher Services has been recognized by the Israeli Rabbanut as one of the higher standard international kosher organizations and has therefore been upgraded to become a member of the very small circle of kosher organizations that are approved by the Israeli Rabbanut for SKS certified products to be imported into Israel as kosher.
Rabbi David Moskowitz, the Shotzer ruv, the Rav Hamachshir or SKS, a well known and respected figure in the world of Kashrus replied to our questions regarding this important recognition:
We are not surprised to get this high validation, as SKS has always been a leader in the standard of kashrus and services. We have consistently shown that an international kosher organization and high standards in kosher certification can go hand in hand, without any compromise with regards to Halacha.
The Kosher Newswire asked leading importers in Israel of food Products and ingredients about the importance of this news. The answer was without hesitation “It was about time that a person of Rav Moskowitz caliber got finally recognized as a leading and reliable voice for the world of kosher.”
SKS Shatz Kosher Services has currently 4 offices in Qingdao China, New York Brooklyn, Hanoi Vietnam and Ashdod Israel, from which his customers based around the world are being serviced.
