The process of certifying that a certain food product has been prepared according to Jewish dietary regulations is known as kosher food certification. These restrictions, known as kashrut, regulate how foods are made, what ingredients can be used, and which animals can be eaten. Jews and non-Jews alike value kosher food certification because it ensures that the food they consume is safe and adheres to religious dietary rules.

The France kosher food certification market is estimated to surpass US$ 225.4 Million by the end of 2030, in terms of revenue, exhibiting at a CAGR of 10.8% during the forecast period (2022 to 2030).

Drivers

Growing Jewish population in France results in increasing demand for kosher food in the country, which is expected to drive the kosher food certification market growth in France. For instance, in 2021, the reports by Jewish Agency for Israel suggested that the Jewish population in France accounted for 446,000. Moreover, many French consumers who are lactose-intolerant and/or vegetarian opts for kosher certified food products. Therefore, growing demand for kosher food has encouraged many French food manufacturers to obtain kosher certification and has resulted in increased competition for imports.

Market Restraints

The rise in vegan consumers and the utilization of animal products are expected to restrain the growth of the kosher food certification market during the forecast period. The absence of professionals that can cook kosher food products and the struggle it triggers amongst the different religions might further challenge the growth of the France kosher food certification market in the near future.  Kosher food certification process follows rules set by the Jewish community, which might cause conflicts amongst various religions due to their different style of preparation of the products. Such conflicts are expected to create controversies and hence, lack of universal set of standards for kosher food certification is expected to restrain the growth of France kosher food certification market.
