One of OUDirect’s most popular features is the search for Kosher approved raw materials, powered by the Universal Kosher Database (UKD). Hundreds of searches are done daily by OU clients looking for ingredients. But companies need to include their products in the database search results. Products are not included by default for privacy reasons. So when manufacturers opt–in, a link to their website can be included that can introduce potential customers to all products on their website.
When any OU customer logs in to OUDirect they can search for potential raw materials in the database. In the example, the search for Dutch Cocoa and returns many results. Displaying details for a specific item via the information icon, the product’s properties are displayed, including relevant kosher information and the manufacturer’s website when available.
If you would like to display your company’s website in our database, please contact your Rabbinic Coordinator. If you don’t know who your Rabbinic Coordinator is email firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to see your website on our website soon.
