Many Newcomers to Kosherfest Arrive with Big Ideas

SECAUCUS, NJ -- When Kosherfest opens on November 13th for its 24th edition, there will be many first time exhibitors who are capitalizing on major trends in kosher. They are not necessarily big companies, but their ideas are big. 

My Dad’s Cookies is a small gluten free bakery with specialties ranging from gluten free cookies to delicious gluten free cakes and gluten free desserts. All of their products are made by hand the old fashioned way. Their mission is to provide their customers with awesome tasting cookies that everyone can enjoy – celiac and none celiac. “There is nothing worse for a kid than having to eat gluten free cookies alone,” says the company. They are amongst some two dozen companies exhibiting at Kosherfest that will be showcasing the growing list of kosher gluten-free products. 

Tribes-A-Dozen is an all-natural, kosher line of traditional bread mixes created especially for busy home bakers. Tribes-A- Dozen’s mixes are easy to prepare with plenty of kid-friendly steps. Tribes-a-Dozen offers three signature Voilà! Hallah mixes, “so that your mixing-bowl-to-table experience is no fuss, no muss.” They are whole grain, wheat and spelt–flours which are all certified organic and kosher certified under the Orthodox Union (OU). 

One company that will be looking to share its products with other kosher manufacturers is Watershed Foods, a world-class supplier of freeze-dried ingredients to a wide variety of companies in a multitude of industries.  Freeze-drying creates real, premium ingredients for break-through products. Watershed Foods has the latest freeze-dry technology and sufficient production capacity to create premium ingredients for the smallest or largest project and for the most challenging applications. Kosher certified, Peanut free and AIB Superior.
