Kinnikinnick Foods Receives Kosher Certification


Leading Provider of Allergy-Friendly Baked Goods and Snacks Now Verified as Kosher Pareve.

Kinnikinnick Foods, North America’s leading manufacturer of gluten-free baked goods and snacks, recently announced that its company facilities, and an extensive list of products, are certified OU kosher and pareve by the Orthodox Union.

Kinnikinnick runs the largest, dedicated gluten free, dairy free and nut free facilities in North America. Both plants have been through the rigorous certification program under the supervision of the Kashruth Division of the Orthodox Union. By making all of its products in house, Kinnikinnick can ensure all of its baked goods and snacks are safe from cross contamination. The OU certification means that those people with special dietary concerns who follow a Kosher diet now have access to a far greater variety of high quality items.

The OU symbol began rolling out on Kinnikinnick’s packaging last December.

Products that are certified Kosher include Kinnikinnick’s All Purpose Flour Blend, Angel Food Cake Mix, Blueberry Muffins, Chocolate Dipped Donuts, White Sandwich Bread, Pizza Crusts, S’moreables Graham Style Crackers, and KinniKritters Animal Cookies, to name a few.

Kosher foods have sustained a growth rate of 15% annually and are the fastest growing ethnic cuisine over the past five years, according to Canadian Agri-Food Trade Service. In total, more than 13% of Americans have reported specifically purchasing kosher-certified foods.

“Making our products certified kosher was a natural choice for us,” shared Kinnikinnick Foods’ President and CEO Jerry Bigam. “Since our products were already free of dairy, we received many calls asking if our lineup was kosher as well. The demand was there, our products met the requirements; we just needed to make it official.”

Kinnikinnick’s products are available for purchase online at and at select natural and mainstream grocery stores throughout the U.S. and Canada.
