B&W Quality Growers Becomes Kosher Certified on Brink of 150th Anniversary
Fellsmere, Fla. (July 17, 2019) – B&W Quality Growers, the world’s largest grower of distinctive baby leaves, has announced its Kosher Certified status. The company’s value-added watercress, arugula, red kale, spinach and Power 4™ offerings have been certified Kosher by Florida Kosher Services.
With nearly 150 years of experience growing highly perishable and prized baby leaves, B&W now applies Kosher standards to the produce the company grows, packs, ships and markets to retail, wholesale, foodservice and specialty customers throughout North America and Europe.
“Becoming Kosher Certified shows the dedication that B&W has to meeting the demands of consumers that eat Kosher diets for moral and health reasons,” says Bob Massave, Executive Vice President for B&W Quality Growers. “It’s important that we listen to our customers and take pride in following a specific and dedicated process when it comes to the production of our leafy greens.”
An inspection of all B&W product ingredients, the production facility and the actual production process approved by a rabbinic organization ensures all ingredients, byproducts, tools and machinery have no evidence of non-kosher substances.
Look for the Kosher stamp of approval on B&W products beginning in July.
