Local food companies to get help selling in kosher markets

Two officials from one of the country’s top kosher certification agencies will lead workshops in Honolulu and Hilo next week for local companies interested in entering the kosher market.

The workshops, sponsored by the Hawaii Department of Agriculture, are geared toward agribusiness, food and restaurant businesses seeking to obtain kosher certification for food products to be sold both domestically and internationally.

The workshops will be led by Rabbi Yechezkel Auerbach and Rabbi Binyomin Lisbon from Kosher Supervision of America, a nonprofit certification agency based in Los Angeles.

The workshops are scheduled Oct. 21 at the Hawaii County Economic Opportunity Council in Hilo and Oct. 22 at Foreign Trade Zone No. 9 in Honolulu. Both workshops are scheduled to run from 9 a.m. until 11:40 a.m.
