Kosher Around The World Topics?
« on: December 15, 2020, 01:48:17 PM »
We were approached by a large hashgacha organization and want to find out if people would enjoy a webinar about kosher in different in different countries or regions of the world.

If we do this, what do people want to know and what regions/countries would be good to start with.

Israel. Which Hashgacha can you trust?

Ingredient sourcing/production in far out/exotic places (far east, middle east, northern Europe etc.)

I doubt they will be rating Hashgochos. (Almost) nobody does that publicly.

Something that can be helpful for many people is what is called in the Kashrus jargon “Group 1” or the product that are Kosher without certification.

There was recently a warning on kikar that most hotels there are not trained in keeping kosher. Not too good.

The list goes down as the years pass, you’d be surprised at how many rabbis still rely on things like bread ‘oh it’s kosher, it’s just plain bread’. The other problem is that many items that are kosher as-is have varieties that aren’t because of non-kosher additives, and this would be very hard to educate the public on. I also think that people who are not machmir will not care if there’s trace amount of E334 in a product for example once such and such organization says the product is kosher.

Reminds me a Headlines podcast I once listened to where each organization was attacking the other about international kashrus.

The South African hechsher has also been touting their involvement in Dubai, albeit as partners with OU.
