The AKC Certification Process
1. Apply for Certification
The AKC will review the application. Each area of kosher has its specialist, and we will team your company representative with our rabbinic expert in your industry.
2. Meet the Rabbi at Your Facility
Our rabbinic expert will visit your facility and determine what steps need to be taken to make the plant kosher and how frequently the production facility will be visited.
3. Agreement & Contract
The contract will include all kosher requirements and any applicable fees. AKC certification fees are some of the lowest in the kosher industry.
4. Receive Kosher Certificate
An official Kosher Certification Letter is granted. This entitles the company to include the trademarked AKC symbol on any products or facilities certified in the letter and to advertise that these products are certified kosher.
