Empire Kosher is now Green Kosher


As you know, as the world’s oldest and largest producer of kosher
chicken and turkey, Empire Kosher has a long history of respecting and
adhering to the rituals of kosher slaughter. However, beginning with
its transfer to current ownership in 2003 , Empire has taken its focus
a step further to ensure that its ethical practices are respected as
diligently as its ritual practices.

“Empire has always been a highly-regarded producer of kosher
products,” Greg Rosenbaum, Empire’s CEO recently told us. “Now, we’re
also developing an admired reputation for being socially and
environmentally conscious, as well as truly natural, in every step of
the production process. Empire is Green Kosher.”

Greg defines the principles of Green Kosher as eating healthy, safely
and strictly kosher, buying responsibly, promoting worker and animal
welfare, protecting the environment and supporting small family
farmers and their communities.

While Empire’s practices have always been well within industry norms,
its green kosher transformation puts it ahead of its competitors by
instituting practices such as limiting the number of chickens its
farmers can raise at any given time, treating all its own
wastewater, employing multiple uses of alternative energy and
substantially reducing its carbon footprint.

Empire Kosher offers a wide variety of all-natural, organic,
free-roaming, antibiotic-free and 100% vegetarian-fed poultry, all
with no growth hormones added. Empire uses absolutely no animal
by-products – only its own 100% vegetarian feed mixed to a unique and
exacting formula.
