Written by JNS and Kol HaBirah Staff on . Posted in Food/Dining

After removing kosher certification from many of its items, Bimbo Bakeries USA will once again be selling kosher products.

“After hearing from our loyal kosher consumers and after productive meetings with our Kosher Certifiers, Bimbo Bakeries USA is pleased to announce that we will once again be offering kosher products under the Arnold, Sara Lee and Ball Park brands,” the company announced in late January.

 “As three of our largest brands, many of which are distributed nationally, Bimbo Bakeries USA is confident that kosher consumers will be able to find the products they are looking for to enjoy themselves and with their families,” they added. “We’d like to thank both the Orthodox Union and KOF-K for their guidance as we reviewed our options.”

Bimbo Bakeries USA is a subsidiary of Mexico’s Grupo Bimbo, which is one of the world’s largest baked-goods businesses with America’s largest privately labeled bread-baking firm.
