Trans Ocean gains kosher status for flexitanks - 02 Sep 2010

With a growth of 10-15% per annum, the market for kosher-certified foods and products is booming. In recent years, there has been an increasing demand for kosher-certified flexitanks, particularly in the Far East market, as consumers and manufacturers from multi-ethnic backgrounds search for guaranteed, certified quality.

"Trans Ocean has been working to achieve the highest standards within the Kashrus industry to gain kosher status for our flexitanks," said Edmund Lim, Trans Ocean's Sales Manager for South East Asia.

Kosher certification comes after rigorous inspections, and requires approved manufacturers to follow strict guidelines and monitoring procedures. Trans Ocean's kosher certification covers the flexitank, and all phases of the development and manufacturing process. For Trans Ocean flexitanks, kosher law is extended to the packaging used to transport food products used in the food industry.

"At Trans Ocean, we always strive to be one step ahead", Mr Lim continued. "Kosher is a niche sector, but is a growing market. Our new certification will allow us to offer our market leading bulk services to more customers around the world".
