Buy Kosher Gifts?
“In a surprising turn of events,
"kosher" has become the most popular claim on new food products, trouncing
"organic" and "no additives or preservatives…”–US News & World

Products Become Mainstream
At Kosher Gift Box, we specialize in
kosher gifts nationwide,
and we see first hand who is buying kosher and why. Everyday we pack up more
kosher gift baskets for an increasing variety of customers. Not only are kosher
food sales growing nationally by about 15 percent each year, but new and
delicious products are hitting the market in droves. During 2007, more than
4,700 new products hit the grocery shelves, according to Mintel, a
Chicago-based market research firm.
Kosher Products are For Everyone
More and more, consumers are learning that kosher foods are more closely
monitored during production to make sure specific food handling rules are
followed, that no cross contamination is allowed (meaning only what’s on the
label is in the product) and that Jewish dietary laws are followed, like milk
and meat products may not be combined. Labels include all ingredients, which is
especially important for vegetarians, lactose-intolerant consumers, or anyone
with food allergies or sensitivities. In fact, Jewish consumers make up only 20
percent of the estimated 10 million Americans who buy kosher. Other kosher food buyers are Muslims, Vegans, Vegetarians and those who seek out clean, healthy food.
Gifts are the Preferred Choice.
There are endless reasons to send gifts of food, and about as many to reasons
to choose kosher gifts. Whether you need to send a gift to a friend, family member or business associate for a holiday, a
celebration or as an expression of sympathy, the
gift basket is appropriate.
“Everything we put into our
kosher gift baskets is of the highest quality, delicious and beautifully
presented,” says Jane Moritz, owner of
Gift Box. “If you’re sending a kosher gift for a religious reason, you can
be sure that your recipient can share everything with friends or family who may
follow dietary laws. If you’re sending a gift to people you don’t know
well, they’ll notice you took the time to consider more than one type of diet. A
basket filled with kosher gifts is always appreciated by vegetarians, as well
as those with food allergies or sensitivities because ingredient labeling is
clear and complete.”
Choosing a kosher gift covers
all bases. For those who prefer kosher, it’s truly welcomed and your
thoughtfulness and consideration will be appreciated. If you’re unsure of your
recipients’ preferences, you can be sure your kosher gift items look and taste
as delicious as non-kosher items, but of a higher quality.
