As a useful guide for companies whose products are already certified kosher by the Orthodox Union (OU), and as an introduction for companies considering OU certification, the OU Kosher Division has just released “The Kosher Standard,” a 20-minute, free video that explains the procedures and requirements necessary to produce an OU Kosher product. The video also suggests a basic management structure for the effective maintenance of kosher standards throughout all aspects of the production process. The video is a sequel to “The Kosher Video,” which explains the meaning of kosher and is intended for both companies and consumers. The Kosher Video is also free and available also as a CD-Rom. The new video is intended for companies only. Rabbi Luban,,
