The company will celebrate its '80 Years of Trust' campaign in 2018.
MIFFLINTOWN, Pa. – Empire Kosher Poultry, a kosher poultry brand, announced the kickoff of its “80 Years of Trust” anniversary celebration at Kosherfest, the kosher-certified products trade show, in Secaucus, New Jersey, on Nov. 14 and 15.
At Kosherfest, attendees will be able to see and sample new products being introduced for 2018 including pre-sliced Natural Southwest Style and Peppered Turkey Deli Meats in re-sealable packaging, in addition to products launched earlier this year to meet the changing tastes of kosher consumers.
"Empire's award-winning taste and commitment to quality for eight decades has made the Empire brand a family tradition for generations and is exemplified by our natural and organic products,” said Jeffrey N. Brown, president of Hain Pure Protein Corporation, a subsidiary of The Hain Celestial Group Inc., which includes the Empire Kosher brand. “We never, ever administer antibiotics, or growth hormones and steroids, and we humanely raise our flocks on family farms before they are harvested under the strictest standards and requirements for kosher certification."
Empire Kosher products come from free-range poultry that are fed non-GMO certified organic grains. Products are available at select retailers nationally.
Founded in 1938, Empire Kosher began with Austrian immigrant, Joseph N. Katz in Liberty, New York. In the early 1960s, Empire Kosher relocated to Mifflintown, Pennsylvania, when Katz purchased a small processing plant.
