“Quixtar offers a number of halal and kosher certified products including NUTRILITE® Concentrated Fruits and Vegetables dietary supplement.” – Linda Harteis
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., June 1, 2007 – According to research presented at the 2007 World Halal Forum, the global halal market is valued at $5.6 billion annually while research indicates that the kosher market in the U.S. is a $3.75 billion industry. “With growing interest in kosher and halal practice, it makes good business sense to offer kosher and halal certified products,” says Fred Harties of the Independent Business Owners Association International. “Our members, Quixtar Independent Business Owners, are proud to offer a wide array of kosher and halal products to their customers.”
“To qualify for kosher certification a food product, the ingredients and manufacturing processes must conform to Jewish dietary laws,” explains Linda Harteis. “As with kosher foods, obtaining halal certification involves added steps in the product preparation process.”
“NUTRILITE has implemented these approved products and practices in order to offer Jewish, Muslim and others who follow kosher and halal practice a wider range of supplement choices that conform to their religious or dietary preferences,” notes Harteis.
“NUTRILITE Concentrated Fruits and Vegetables joins myriad outstanding halal and kosher certified food and home care products available exclusively from Quixtar Independent Business Owners (IBOs) in the U.S. and Canada,” says Fred Harteis.
