I was very excited when I read the following press release from Vicki Garfinkel from Andover Communications. I love kosher food, especially kosher food and beverage products that everybody can enjoy! Here is the press release sent from Andover Comunications describing what’s in store, and what will be in stores in the months to come! If you are a kosher foodie, you will definitely want to attend this event. I will be on site interviewing both exhibitors and attendees about their food and beverage products.

State of the Kosher Industry: The Kosher Symbol: A License to Greater Profitability
Time: 9:00am – 9:45am
As the kosher food industry continues to grow, more than 100,000 products carry a kosher symbol. This can be an enormous marketing opportunity for those who wish to capitalize on it. Over ten million Americans buy kosher food and U.S. supermarkets are seeing a greater growth in this market over non-kosher sales. Menachem Lubinsky, founder of Kosherfest, will discuss how the industry can use its kosher status to make inroads with different segments of the food market, including retail and foodservice.
