PAGE 26: Using the Product Listings
The information in this guide applies only to products sold in the UK. Products manufactured for export may have different formulations even if coming from the same factory.
PAGE 26: Products which are kosher certified by the London Beth Din
In order to enhance kosher facilities across the UK in recent years, the London Beth Din has adopted the American kosher logo system, in addition to its traditional fully-supervised hechsher…Some products may not bear the KLBD logo on their current packaging. As in the American system, baked products are not necessarily Pat Yisrael, and dairy products may be Chalav Akum.
PAGE 26: Products without certification, approved for the guide
Products listed in the Kashrut Guide which are neither supervised nor bearing the logo have been investigated by our food technologists and approved on this basis. The investigation cover ingredients, any processing aids and shared use of equipment. They are carried out primarily by correspondence, with occasional factory visits where necessary.
The following items are ‘authorized’ (without certification) by KLBD, the Kashrus Division of the London Beis Din.
