Loukoumi receives Kosher Certification

As well as a religious choice, Kosher food standards are an indication of quality and purity. It has its origins in the Hebrew word "Kasher" which translated means proper or pure. Kosher certified foods are generally free from unnatural modification such as preservatives, flavour improvers , artificial colours or flavours. We are currently able to certify many of our flavours. Certification here in New Zealand allows buyers internationally to be assured of the quality and adherence to the strict quality standards to meet Jewish dietary laws. Click on image to read more.
