Directory of Kosher Certifying Agencies
Last Update: 08/18/14

There are more than 1100 kosher certifying agencies around the world! For a complete list of Kashrus agencies (which includes both cRc recommended and non-recommended agencies) visit Kashrus Magazine Online (or call 1-718-336-8544). Special thanks to Rabbi Yosef Wikler, editor of Kashrus Magazine.

As a public service, the Chicago Rabbinical Council is presenting a list of common acceptable kosher symbols and their agencies' contact information. The fact that a particular agency does not appear on this list does not imply that the cRc has determined it to be substandard.

Note: There are three areas of kashrus that require extra diligence and research even when bearing a recommended kosher symbol. These three areas are: meat, certified for Passover hotels, and cruises.
