Kosher Certification continues to grow across the Canadian Wheat belt of Saskatchewan!

Saskatchewan, centrally located on the Canadian Prairies is affectionately known as the bread basket of Canada. It is home to many grains and pulses including majority of Canada’s Wheat, Flax, Rye, Oats, Peas, Lentils, Barley and Canola. Saskatchewan is the largest exporter of Lentils (Dahl) to India and Chickpeas to Israel.

Recently Hanes Hummus, a growing manufacturer of Hummus and dips located in Saskatchewan gained Kosher Certification through Kosher Check. Hanes Hummus was started back in 2009 by Yohannes Petros who started making Hummus at home for friends using fresh ingredients. A family member who worked at a local restaurant brought his hummus for herself to enjoy. The rest of the staff began immediate inquiries as to the availability of the delicious hummus. Once informed that her cousin produced it an order was placed by the establishment, which became the first customer and Hanes Hummus was born. Hanes Hummus is available in a variety of stores including Whole Foods, Choices, Federated Co-op to name a few. Yohannes knew that in order to sell product outside of Saskatchewan, they would need a Kosher Certification such as Kosher Check that was Globally Accepted.

Over the past decade the demand for Kosher Certification with Kosher Check has increased dramatically. The Kosher market has been growing at an annual rate of 15% for the past several years and products bearing Kosher Certification continue to outsell both Organic and All Natural. Today many leading manufacturers in Saskatchewan and across Canada are looking to gain Kosher Certification to assist them with opening new markets around the World. Today many uncertified companies in Saskatchewan and around the world are turning to Kosher Check to assist them in their Kosher Certification needs.

Kosher Check provides Kosher Certification to many companies throughout the province of Saskatchewan. Including Hanes Hummus, Scoular Company, Erco, Cleatech, Best Cooking Pulses, Nunweilers Flour to name a few! Kosher Check is a globally accepted Kosher Certification, providing Kosher Certification on five continents to food manufacturers such as Merck Pharmaceuticals, Kerry Foods, Kemin Bioscience, Post Food Group, Scoular Company to name a few. Gaining Kosher Certification through Kosher Check can help increase sales as well as potential private label business.
