I hear that. Maybe bigger logos if different sizes have a different status?

You need to balance with the complex globalized sourcing

So you cant fully pull the hechsher. Consumers need it. You cant demand the companies certify everything they wont do it.
What do you propose?

Perhaps a variation in design for the kosher (or NK) product.

Agreed. I though the Kashrus Agencys policy was the problem.

Brand recognition is HUGE. doubt many companies would agree.

I've seen them in wholesale/commercial packaging.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

That's the normal use.... I think they sell canned too but machlokes between hechsherim regarding bishul akum.

I recall a pic going around with pomegranate selling one of those black foam trays wrapped with 2 whole potatoes for a hilarious price.

I don't recall seeing that there (in Brooklyn), but then again I never looked for it and לא ראינו אינה ראיה.

Chug Chasam Sofer Petach Tikva? Anyone know anything about them? This blog post is old, but anonymous:

I've always eaten them (not for meat) and want to know more about it.

I wouldnt trust those stickers, they also say that Ben & Jerry's along with other things that have real milk in them are 'avkat chalav nachri'
Actually, all actual milk in Ben and Jerry's made in Israel is chalav yisrael. (They use powdered flavoring that contains powdered cholov stam milk and produce it here in Israel. You can actually visit the plant. A number of flavors use pareve powdered flavoring, and those items are considered Cholov Yisroel.)
