STAR-K Kosher Certification has provided kosher supervision for over fifty years. 


As a leader in the international world of kosher certification, the STAR-K is most proud of its reputation for providing prompt, friendly and professional service to both the kosher consumer and members of the food industry.

A quality product deserves a quality certification. Companies paying for Kosher certification do not want to be confronted by consumers and distributors saying that a product has unacceptable certification. Any company that puts its heart and soul into its product wants a Kosher certification that reflects that same degree of dedication. STAR-K Kosher Certification has combined two fundamental concepts to inspire confidence—acceptability and marketability.

This fact, together with the three Rs of Kosher certification—Reliability, Reputation and Respect—have contributed to making the STAR-K one of the premier kosher certification agencies on the international scene today.

Providing quality service without bureaucracy, the STAR-K office is administered by a highly professional and efficient staff that will service your company quickly and courteously.


Leadership & Innovation

The STAR-K is constantly consulted for an authoritative opinion in today's complex world of Kashrus. Our popular and internationally distributed KASHRUS KURRENTS serves as a leading voice and primary source of information critical to consumers as well as industry.

Proliferation of Kosher symbols, certification agencies, and private supervisions can leave the Kosher consumer and manufacturer bewildered. Of the nearly 900 certifications that are available, the STAR-K has emerged as a leader and innovator in today's dynamic food industry. It has proven itself responsive and user-friendly, enabling manufacturers and distributors access to a significant marketplace which might otherwise be unapproachable.

Is probably the most important factor that a company looks for when selecting a certifying agency. STAR-K is in the forefront of integrating the worlds of Kashrus and technology.
