3. Set Up Initial Visit
Your cRc Rabbinic Coordinator will visit your facilities for an initial, comprehensive inspection. This inspection gives us a thorough understanding of your company's unique features. The Rabbinic Coordinator will outline the procedures that your company must adhere to in order to receive and maintain kosher certification. There is usually a nominal fee for the initial inspection. That amount will be determined before the visit is made after which you have the choice to proceed with the inspection.


4. Contract
After completing the initial inspection, the Rabbinic Coordinator will report back to our Kashruth Commission. The Kashruth Commission will then determine a program for supervision and calculate your annual fee. The fee structure is based on a variety of factors, including the nature of the production, the location and the amount of effort necessary to maintain your kosher program. We will then forward a contract to you for your approval.


5. Receive a Kosher Certificate
Congratulations! After receiving a copy of our fully executed contract, you will be certified kosher by the cRc, one of the most respected kosher agencies across the world. Mazal Tov!
