A Canadian Rabbi has launched a Kosher food certification program designed to inform consumers whether certain products meet the strict standards of Kosher food handling. The Kosher Check program will also ensure that manufacturers have warranted that their operational activities conform to enhanced food-safety protocols.

Among the food safety programs considered benchmarks for Kosher Check are those regarded as "best practice" by quality assurance authorities and food professionals, according to a news release. They include the HACCP program (Hazard Awareness Critical Control Points) as well as GFSI (Global Food Standard Initiative), FSSC 22000 (Foundation for Food Safety Certification) and BRC (British Retail Council), among others.

"Certainly, Kosher Check is intended to be value-added for consumers," said Rabbi Avraham Feigelstock, "since it will provide them extra assurance concerning food safety."

Kosher Check, originally known as BC Kosher, is a non-profit Kosher certification agency headquartered in Vancouver.
