List of Some reliable Kosher Symbols

FROM: http://www.crcweb.org/agency_list.php

Directory of Kosher Certifying Agencies

Updated April 2010


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 more than 1000 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.
