The Sephardi Kashrut Authority (SKA) was originally set up to serve the Spanish and Portuguese community, but has since broadened its outlook.
The SKA concentrates on products, caterers and restaurants with which it has personal contact and input. Its main endeavour is to bring kashrut to the wider community.
The SKA works tirelessly to search out products and companies that will enhance the life of observant Jews. At the same time standards of Halacha and supervision are maintained by a Rabbinical team under the auspices of the Sephardi Beth Din. In this way it makes kashrut as affordable and accessible as possible.
The Sephardi Kashrut Authority welcomes caterers with kosher certification to their halls and synagogues. The SKA is happy to work with others for the benefit of the whole Jewish community, regardless affiliation.
Our aim is to put on your plates the highest quality, supervised food.
In many ways the SKA has been at the forefront of bringing kashrut to more Jews in the UK. For example its early collaboration with Allied Bakeries, one of the largest bread producers, has made it possible for observant Jews to find kosher bread in supermarkets around the country.
In addition to the high standard of kashrut there is an emphasis on food hygiene, so the Shomrim are not only supervising halachic details, but are making sure that food is prepared in ways that reflect modern standards.
