For nearly 25 years, we've been
providing the most complete listing of kosher-certifying agencies, their
symbols, and information about their organizations. The number of agencies
and symbols listed in the printed version of the Guide continues to grow. This online version now lists about 400 agencies.
To the kosher consumer, a symbol may conjure up the
image of a huge kashrus organization dedicated to round-the-clock supervision of
kosher products. In reality, however, the "organization" represented may be only
an individual who works alone and whose supervision may or may not be up to the level of
the "American Standard of Kashrus."
