Most Americans eat some kosher food every day, but chances are they’re not aware of it. Take a walk down the aisles of any supermarket and you will see that certification appears on over 60% of America’s produced foods that are certified kosher, from the coveted Oreo to the thirst-quenching Coca-Cola. Over $150 billion of kosher certified products are consumed annually, and spending continues to rise dramatically.
Founded in 1852 by grandfather Jacob Mayer, Mayer Bros, a privately held company, provides a processing facility for many leading national brands producing spring water, fruit juices and apple cider.
Certification gives a product a competitive edge that makes it sell faster, thus causing supermarkets to favor brands with certification.
