New York…by Zechariah Mehler…Thanks to MyGroceryMaster.com kosher consumers now have a new way to find kosher products using their iPhone or iPad. By downloading the My Grocery Master application from the Apple app store, kosher foodies will be able to search a database of over 100,000 specialty food products and 360 name brands. All they will have to do is to type in their zip code and My Grocery Master will search a database of over 100 grocery store chains for kosher products. The application will also search for specific products that are gluten free, vegan, organic and even free of lactose. Once the kosher product is found, My Grocery Master has a GPS function that will locate participating stores near the user. The App’s database of stores includes; Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Albertsons, Wegman’s, Wal-Mart, Giant Food and Stop & Shop to name a few. “We’re delighted to save people time and energy looking for the products they need by making them available at the convenient touch of a button,” says Steven M.
