KLBD is pleased to announce it will be exhibiting at Health Ingredients Europe Frankfurt 2016, stand K71. KLBD, a professional consultancy service providing kosher accreditation to ingredient and retail product manufacturers, is one of the few companies to have continuously exhibited at HI Europe for over a decade.
According to research and market insight company Mintel kosher is the leading claim on new products in North America in 2014, at 41% even more than the ubiquitous claim of gluten-free. Demand for kosher retail products is also on the rise in Europe. Part of the appeal of this certification is its inclusiveness: appealing to people following a wide variety of diets. Food ingredients manufacturers need to have the capability to provide for these demands. Russell J Brown, Commercial Consultant at KLBD commented “Ideally kosher compliance should be considered at the beginning of any new product development be it for ingredients or retail products”.
KLBD continues to work as a partner to quality and production personnel from multi-national food brands, ingredient manufacturers and raw material processors, many of whom are exhibiting alongside KLBD at HI Frankfurt, including Alland & Robert, Arla Food Ingredients, Cambridge Commodities Limited, Carbery Food Ingredients and Glanbia Nutritionals.
Year on year, demand and recognition for KLBD certification has continued to grow. In part this can be attributed to their continuous presence at Fi and HI Europe shows. The team has connected with leading ingredients manufacturers and the brand has gained additional exposure. Additionally, KLBD’s responsiveness to changing tastes and health concerns and new trends in food production have contributed to growth.
KLBD offers an affordable and expert kosher certification service. The organisation’s expertise includes flavours, aromas, herbal extracts, dairy ingredients, fats and oils. Market leading clients include DMK, Givaudan, IFF, Treatt, Kerry, and Frutarom.
The KLBD team comprises world-class technical experts who are qualified in chemistry and food technology, in addition to a skilled team of production and sales and marketing personnel who assist companies in reaching the market. These personnel, together with KLBD representatives and agents around the world, work with companies as certification partners. This enables KLBD to meet the needs of individual companies, increasing customer satisfaction and developing longstanding relationships with clients. KLBD is the kosher consultant: able of offer solutions to all certification and supervision enquiries and to offer all levels of kosher compliance including super kosher.
