The Jewish prohibition against consuming insects is an Issur d'Oraisa, a G-d given outlaw. So strict is this prohibition, it is mentioned five times in the Torah.
Unfortunately, in recent years, due to federal regulations and genetic changes caused by insecticides, there are increasing amounts of insects such as thrips and aphids infesting some crops. Obviously, many fruits and vegetables, especially green and leafy varieties, must be cleaned and checked before cooking or eating for the presence of small insects.
Kosher Crops takes the guesswork out of kosher produce consumption. We source farm fresh produce then clean, check and certify the produce to be Kosher.
We do not rely on industry standard triple washing or other leniencies.
Our well-trained staff ultra-wash the produce conforming to the highest standards of kashruth. Once cleaned, the produce is inspected adhering to the most thorough and comprehensive methods for checking greens.
Our certified mashgichim are tested regularly and our facility is inspected often. We are under strict Rabbinic supervision to ensure your produce is halachically insect free and kosher.
Kosher Crops is certified by the Central Rabbinical Congress (CRC/Hisachdus), the Star-K, and the Keystone-K.
