Kosher Valley, a new line of certified kosher antibiotic-free (ABF), vegetarian fed and humanely raised all-natural chicken and turkey products, has been named a 2009 Kosherfest New Products Competition winner in the “Best New Meat, Seafood or Poultry” category for its chicken breast cutlets.
Kosherfest, a kosher food and beverage show, took place Oct. 27-28 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, N.J.
“We are honored to be judged the best in our category and believe this confirms the superiority of our turkeys and chickens,” said Harry Geedey, vice president, marketing of Kosher Valley. “We believe that customers appreciate the unwavering quality we can offer, because of our sole commitment to antibiotic-free certified kosher, rather than offering ABF as a sideline,” he added.
Kosherfest used a professional judging panel of restaurateurs, grocers and cookbook authors who sampled hundreds of new food kosher food entries to select the winners.
