Kosher Almonds

Just Almonds obtained the certification in support of clients requiring kosher certified foods.

“We are doing everything that we can to ensure that our products are kosher” said Jeff Sawyer, Just Almonds founder. “We did this because we realized that many of our client base requires their food to be certified.”

Just Almonds frequently publishes stories in their monthly newsletter on the research they’ve discovered on the internet. “We’re a young company, and we’re trying to do everything that we can to support this community.”

The Vaad Hakashrus of Northern California, also known as Northern California Kosher, is a community service organization whose mission is the maintenance of a high level of Kosher quality supervision. The word "Vaad" in Hebrew means association. It is composed of Rabbinic and lay leaders providing kosher certification, supervision, and inspection for caterers, wholesale and retail food vendors, and food production companies in Northern California.

The VAAD was founded in 1996 by a cross-section of the Rabbis and concerned kosher-observant people in the area who saw the need for an improved level of kosher supervision in Northern California. Currently the VAAD supervises 17 eating establishments, 22 food production facilities, 8 caterers who are always kosher, and has supervised over 120 events with over 40 different caterers. (A complete directory is available here). In addition to our own work, Vaad members subcontract with other international kosher agencies (the OU,OK, Kof-K, Star-K,etc.) to supervise almost all of the kosher food production in Northern California.
