As the Greater Toronto Area’s community kosher certifier, and Canada’s largest kosher certifier, we at COR – Kashruth Council of Canada share the concern of kosher consumers across Canada regarding the closure of Chai Kosher Poultry. Our primary allegiance is to Canada’s kosher consumers, and we are distressed that the supply and selection of kosher poultry may decrease.
We have been working diligently with various community stakeholders to advocate on behalf of the kosher community to request that our country’s regulatory agencies do what they can to grant the necessary approvals to increase the supply and selection of kosher poultry. We are heartened by the fact that there are entrepreneurs who have expressed interest in filling the void left by Chai Kosher Poultry, and whichever groups are ultimately successful, they will receive our unwavering support.
We are confident that as a kosher community, together we will successfully navigate this situation. We want to assure you that your representatives at COR-Kashruth Council of Canada are working intently on your behalf to help increase the supply and selection of kosher poultry in Canada. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us.
