TORONTO — There was no surprise in either the large number of products that were certified kosher or in the number of participants who represented kosher at the Salon International de l’Alimentation (SIAL Canada), which took place from April 30th to May 2nd, 2013 at the Direct Energy Centre.
With almost 770 exhibitors from 44 countries, and some 12,825 visiting professionals from 61 countries, this edition of SIAL Canada did not ignore the lucrative kosher market. Rabbi Saul Emanuel of Montreal Kosher, led a mini-conference on kosher at the show. Rabbi Emanuel focused on the growth of kosher and the extraordinary opportunities that exist in the market. He said that his agency certifies more than 700 facilities and thousands of products.Photo courtesy of Bill613
