KOSHER cleaning standards
Kosher compliant cleaning of transport-units
In order to ensure that the Jewish food laws are observed and that the food is kosher, not only is the kosher certification of food production facilities important, but it must also be guaranteed that raw materials and food are transported exclusively in transport containers they are cleaned according the ENFIT kosher cleaning standards and documented by the ECC-ENFIT CLEANING CERTIFICATE, in combination with the ENFIT-bulkvision blockchain cloud technology.
Probably the most precise and strictest food regulations can be found in Judaism, whereby the sacred and the profane are intimately linked. Foods that are permitted to Jews under the Jewish food laws are considered "kosher," i.e., H. "pure" or "suitable", although this term does not only refer to food.
In order to ensure that the food you buy is kosher and thus complies with Jewish food laws, appropriate certifications, so-called hechsharim, have been established.
In Israel and the USA, the certification is attached to the packaging like a seal or displayed in relevant shops such as bakeries and butchers. In other countries, the corresponding foods are summarized and published in an official list.
The supervision of religious regulations is the responsibility of an authorized rabbinate, such as the Hager Kashrus Committee, Antwerp, Rabbi Pinchas Avrohom Meyers. In order to receive a certificate, the following conditions must be met:
- All ingredients of a food must be recorded in an ingredient list.
- All ingredients must have a Kosher certificate.
- The rabbi is to inspect the production facility.
- Food containers are cleaned according to the ENFIT P 260 K standard.
The food can only be sold as "kosher food" if all requirements are met. In the production of food, attention is also increasingly directed to the transport and, above all, to the corresponding "kosher cleaning" of the transport containers and the traceability of the processes. For the first time, ENFIT as an international association offers reliable and validated processes that ensure the requirements. See also the international ENFIT Guideline.
