Chicago…The AKO Map is a B2B site where Mashgichim post their availability and certifying agencies can find Mashgichim to cover for in dozens of countries around the world, according to Rabbi Sholem Fishbane, Executive Director of the Association of Kashrus Organizations. There are more than 700 listings on the site, and the site has been visited nearly 10,000 times in the few months that it has been operational. Mashgichim post or update their listings almost daily, and the site uses an automated system to ensure that the information is current. This new AKO service is an important addition to kashrus agencies worldwide. Mashgichim work in plants, at retail establishments and at events. Locating a mashgiach was a very difficult task which Rabbi Fishbane hopes this will eliminate. With the click of a mouse the searcher can see a map with available mashgichim.
