oronto — The kosher
food and Jewish Life
Expo in Miami Beach
this winter had a clear
message for its observers: the
kosher food market is grow-
ing by leaps and bounds.
The theme of the expo was
"Kosher: A Market On The
Move."
Participating exhibitors in-
cluded kosher food manufac-
turers, distributors and
marketers, as well as sup-
pliers of Judaica, art, music,
books and religious articles.
Jewish and Israeli service
organizations were also
represented. The event at-
tracted 40,000 visitors.
Ten years ago, only about
1,000 products were certified
as kosher. Today the kosher
market has more than 16,000
products, which are produced
by about 2,500 companies.
The kosher market is now
worth $1 billion. By 1990, the
number of kosher products is
expected to be over 20,000,
with the dolllar value of the
market going as high as $5
billion.
The two kosher food expos
held so far have elicited such
interest that the third Inter-
national Kosher Foods Expo
is scheduled for June 17 to 21
in New York City. It is plann-
ed to be four times larger
than the first expo held in
New York, when many people
had to be turned away
because of overcrowding.
The importance of the
kosher market was
acknowledged by the exhibits
of some of North America's
most prominent food
manufacturers such as
Sanka, General Foods,
Seagram's and Heinz.
Florida's major super-
market chain, Publix, had
one of the largest displays in
the expo. The company stated
that in addition to the Jewish
consumers, many non-Jews
prefer kosher products,
because of the perception that
kosher is synonymous with
better quality.
A large percentage of
kosher food consumers today
are not Jewish. They are
vegetarians, Moslems,
Seventh Day Adventists and
people who for various other
reasons prefer kosher.
The many booths at the ex-
po offered free samples of
tacos, tofu, all-natural frozen
fruit bars and numerous
other traditional and new
delicacies. The exhibits show-

ed that kosher food no longer
means just blintzes and
knishes.
Among the foreign ex-
hibitors at the expo was a
kosher food manufacturer
from Paris, France, who has
started an export business
because of the potential of the
North American market.
Kosher Italian cuisine was
being promoted by another
company. This company sees
the interest in kosher food as
a back-to-Jewish-roots move-
ment. "People are looking for
answers, and being kosher is
part of it," said a company
representative.
Besides shrimp and lobster
substitutes, there were five
varieties of hors d'oeuvres
from Bernan Foods (stuffed
mushrooms, beef turnovers,
bagel dogs). Empire Kosher
Poultry displayed pizza
Siciliana, borekas and cooked
turkey breasts.
Of course, no Jewish party
or fair can be just for mun-
ching foods. "I came here
looking for a Jewish hus-
band," admitted Nadine
Taylor of Miami Beach.

U.S. Seeks
To Bar Nazis

Washington (JTA) — The
Justice Department asked
the Immigration and
Naturalization Service (INS)
Monday to place the names of
9,800 suspected former con-
centration camp guards on its
watch list.
Those individuals, whom
the department determined
assisted or otherwise par-
ticipated in Nazi-sponsored
persecution, would be barred
from entering the United
States under the so-called
Holtzman Amendment.
The names were compiled
from captured war records,
post-World War II wanted and
detention lists and extradi-
tion requests.

Shoah Lessons

New York — To assist
members of the U.S. Armed
Forces in organizing
Holocaust education pro-
grams and ceremonies, the
Department of Defense is
distributing a 96-page book
entitled Days of Remem-
brance produced with the
assistance of the Interna-
tional Center for Holocaust
Studies of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith.
