Kosher Food Sellers

The Kosher Food Ordinance requires any individual or business that prepares, distributes, sells or exposes for sale any food represented to be “Kosher” or “Kosher for Passover” to have a reasonable basis to believe it is Kosher according to dietary restrictions. The agent must disclose the basis representation is made by posting a sign (in bold-face, one-inch-high lettering) in a clear and conspicuous place easily seen upon entrance to the establishment or the place where the food is sold or prepared. The Broward County Kosher Special Regulatory license must be displayed at the place where the food is sold or prepared. Violators may be subject to civil penalties.

Important: Our application for a Kosher Food License includes a disclosure form which establishes which products are and are not kosher; which products, equipment and facilities are under rabbinical supervision; and whether any products are non-kosher.​​
