The London Beth Din Kashrut Authority has announced that more than 30 products made by the UK’s largest bakery brand will now be certified as kosher.
Warburtons, whose goods are sold at thousands of supermarkets across the country, will now have the KLBD logo on items including sliced rolls and loaves, crumpets and sandwich thins.
The products have the halachic designation of pas palter, meaning that they are produced at a non-Jewish commercial bakery, but with kosher ingredients. The first Warburtons products with the KLBD logo are now on the market, with other ranges following in the coming weeks.
A spokesperson for Warburtons confirmed that "a range of our products have been officially certified as kosher, making it easier for Jewish consumers to buy our products with confidence".
Rabbi Jeremy Conway, head of the KLBD, said he was “delighted that Warburtons have chosen to partner with KLBD and take up kosher certification.
“KLBD’s priority is to give kosher consumers the widest possible choice of foods. The breadth of the range will be a great help to kosher consumers, particularly to people living in outlying communities as well as Jewish students, holidaymakers and all those away from home.
We look forward to a long and successful relationship between the KLBD and Warburtons”.
