NY State Kosher Registry

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Kosher Law Protection Act of 2004 requires that consumers of food represented as kosher in New York be provided with information identifying the person or organization certifying that food as kosher.

To do so, the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets is establishing an on-line registry of food represented as kosher. Those involved in the kosher food trade – certain producers, processors, packers, distributors, retailers and certifiers of kosher food products, as well as those who prepare kosher food – will need to file product and certifying information with the Department.
