There are well over 1,400 kosher certifying agencies in the world today. Recommending certain agencies is the cRc's intensely-contemplated and most difficult decision, and we put a great deal of time and research in this endeavor solely to help kosher consumers, without any monetary or other compensation. Because we take this task so seriously, our Kashrus Administrator, Rabbi Sholem Fishbane, has written an article entitled Understanding the Reliability of Kosher Agencies explaining how the cRc determines recommendation status in order to help the kosher consumer make an informed decision. The cRc keeps strictly to halachic/kashrus criteria alone in making these recommendations, in keeping with our adherence to Torah values.
