Manitoba-made Bothwell Cheese is now OU (Orthodox Union) Kosher certified, allowing the product to be introduced to new customers.
“We are very proud to achieve this certification and delighted about the prospect of introducing our cheese to new customers, who may never have had the opportunity to experience Bothwell Cheese for themselves,” said Bothwell president and CEO Ivan Balenovic.
To attain this designation, Kosher inspectors spend time on-site and rigorously monitor all aspects of production, from the process, ingredients, equipment, and facilities. Bothwell has employed a full-time Mashgiach (Kosher guide/supervisor) to participate in the cheese-making process.
The New Bothwell-based company has been making special order Kosher cheese since the 1980s.
