A written agreement is drafted outlining the terms of the certification
7. Letter of Certification
Once the company signs the agreement and pays the applicable fees, a letter of certification is issued by Cleveland Kosher. This entitles the company to display the Cleveland Kosher symbol on their products and to advertise the products as kosher
