The Kosher Certification Process:
Qualified, confidential, and reliable,TCPL is your trusted partner in industrial kosher certification.
At the dawn of the third millennium, the food industry is responding to consumer demand and distribution pressure with an ever-increasing number of processed food products. This presents a whole new challenge for the Kosher certification process.
However, thanks to kosher food experts, most ingredients can be cleared for use in Kosher Production, or replacements can be readily found.

Initial Visit to Your Production Plant Based upon the information collected from your application form, TCPL will set up an appointment at your convenience to visit your manufacturing facility. The purpose of the inspection is to clarify the details of the ingredients and manufacturing equipment used in your production process.
Post-Visit Analysis of Process and Ingredients Evaluation and approval by the TCPL staff will follow a thorough inspection of your process and the ingredients in your formulas. Replacement for animal ingredients with vegetable-derived or synthetic origin alternatives will be proposed. Cleansing (koshering) schemes for certain parts of your machinery will be arranged.
Finalization of the Kosher Certification Agreement Upon confirmation of compliance with all the kosher requirements, the details of supervision and financial obligations will be handled. Your annual fee will be based on the amount of work required by TCPL. A Letter of Certification (LOC) will be issued. The Kosher symbol may then be applied to the certified products that you produce.
