Chefs & Dietitians Offered
Accredited Training at Kosher World.
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ --
Kosher World Conference & Expo, the international tradeshow for
expanding kosher markets, today rolled out the first part of Kosher
World's conference track, which has been accredited by the American
Dietetic Association's Commission on Dietetic Registration, as well
as approved by the American Culinary Federation, for continuing education
There are over 10 million Californians who can use
kosher to their benefit including Muslims, Seventh-Day Adventists,
the 20% of the population who are lactose intolerant, and the millions
that are "Vegetarian Inclined." With the addition of the
traditional Jewish and health conscience population, kosher has been
growing by leaps and bounds. More than ever, kosher is a year round
product segment that appeals to large portions of mainstream consumers.
Kosher World's conference track offers dietitians and chefs accredited,
high-caliber continuing education sessions to maintain their licenses
and titles. "Kosher 101," "Benefits and applications
of kosher," and "Preparation and delivery" are all
sessions designed for professionals in the mainstream.
Kraft, as one of the nation's best recognized marketers
of kosher food products, is the sponsor of this conference track.
"Kraft is proud to lead the way on educating dietitians and chefs
as to the benefits and applications of kosher to the broader markets,"
said Tony Ramirez, Area Vice President, Kraft Food Service. "Kraft
supports quality education programs that help those in the mainstream
understand not only how to make the most of kosher products year round,
but how to position themselves to serve the community at new levels."
"Kosher has always been about the traditional
markets -- that's been the focus of the industry, the shows, and the
publications. Kosher World focuses on bringing kosher to mainstream
and mainstream to kosher ... and to do that with products that are
kosher for year round," said Neil Ticktin, CEO of Kosher World
Conference & Expo. "Those that understand the trends, like
Kraft, are forward thinking companies. They understand that kosher
appeals to a far broader market than most think about."
