KLBD ASSISTS FRESH KOSHER MILK IN CHINA
KOSHER MILK IN CHINA
A Beijing dairy is distributing strictly kosher, or Chalav Yisrael, cow’s milk throughout China.
The first ton of milk has been produced under the supervision of Rabbi Shimon Freundlich, director of Chabad-Lubavitch of Beijing. Completely organic, the milk meets European and US health standards in addition to satisfying the strictures of Jewish dietary laws.
Rabbi Akiva Osher Padwa, Director of Certification at the KLBD and an expert in the dairy industry, advised on the setting up of the production and was present at the initial run.
Future production will take place on a monthly basis, said Freundlich, and the milk will be available in Guangzhou, Pudong, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Kowloon and Yi Wu in addition to Beijing.
“Until now, families like ours have been living off powdered milk shipped from Israel,” said Freundlich, who estimated that some 10,000 Jews live in China. “Now, our children can have cereal and fresh milk for breakfast.”
