Strawberry Hill Baking Company is proud to be certified kosher by Vaad HaKashruth of Kansas City, the local council that oversees certification. This oversight involves regular inspections and ongoing supervision by the council to maintain their endorsement. If you’re unfamiliar with kosher food, you may be wondering what this certification means.
The root of the word “kosher” means “fit” or “proper” and applies to foods that are fit to eat in terms of Jewish dietary laws. These laws require adherence to strict standards governing the entire cycle of food preparation, from sourcing ingredients to delivery of the final product. While kosher certification is of course important to people of the Jewish faith, it also assures all of our customers that our ingredients, processes and facilities adhere to the highest standards of quality, safety and cleanliness.
