Finica Food Specialties Limited, has recently put the majority of its Celebrity International brand Canadian goat logs under COR kosher supervision, and most have also received Crescent-M halal certification. The flavors that are both kosher and halal are Plain, Honey, Cranberry and Cinnamon, Garlic and Fine Herbs, and Dill. There is also a halal Fig Goat. All logs are available in two sizes 130gr and 300gr and the Plain Goat comes in larger logs and bulk for foodservice.
Celebrity International has created a sensation with its innovative line of flavors. The Cranberry and Cinnamon Goat - a creamy, spreadable chevre log covered in sweet, tangy fruit, was one of the first to hit the market. Its success inspired other combinations. Because of the high quality of the Ontario goat's milk, the cheeses are mild enough to blend with a variety of fruits and seasonings. The goats are fed from foodstuff produced on the farmstead, including high-protein roasted soybeans and corn. Naturally iodine-free sea salt seasons the cheeses, and they are all animal rennet-free, making them suitable for vegetarians.
The COR hechsher is the trademark of the Kashruth Council of Canada, a Toronto-based organization which has been in existence for more than 50 years, and the milk is chalav stam. The Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America (IFANCA), headquartered in Chicago, Ill., is the leading halal certification organization in North America. The presence of these two solid symbols on the label promotes greater cross-marketability and consumer confidence in the Celebrity International brand.
