Last Liverpool kosher caterer ends kashrut

February 4, 2010

The last Liverpool-based kosher caterer has relinquished its kashrut licence.

Marcos Catering, established in 1990, will henceforth cater small events on an unlicensed basis. Director Phil Marco said the expansion of a non-kosher noodle bar with his two sons did not sit with a kosher enterprise.

“I don’t think there will be anyone taking over kosher catering in Liverpool — the community isn’t big enough. Our biggest business has been in Manchester.”
