Barchemy adds Certified Kosher Pareve to Manufacturing Capabilities

Pittsburgh, PA (10/18/2022) – Barchemy, LLC, an emerging leader in Better-For-You (BFY) chocolate, nutritional bar and confectionery ingredients, announces its dedicated chocolate production line now includes Kosher Pareve certification. Located in the Donora, PA manufacturing plant, Barchemy can produce ingredients that are Kosher Pareve certified in addition to the free from the top 12 allergens: gluten, peanut, tree nut, dairy, egg, soy, corn, sesame, mustard, coconut, fish, and shellfish.

Since its inception, Barchemy has offered a variety of products that meet the health and wellness goals of formulators and manufacturers targeting health-conscious consumers. Providing a kosher option expands the reach of this audience that is looking for kosher dietary products, vegetarian, Pareve or vegan offerings. To be kosher certified, all ingredients in the product and the process of producing the product must comply with strict kosher policies. Kosher pareve certification means the product is meat-free and dairy-free. Under Kosher law, milk and meat are prohibited to be cooked or eaten together.

“By adding the kosher pareve certification, the Better-For-You Barchemy manufacturing line continues to put consumers first by addressing their evolving eating habits,” explained Larry Toscano, Founder and CEO.

The Barchemy facility opened the dedicated production line focused on allergen-free products in January 2022, which features cutting-edge equipment manufactured by Aasted.

Founded in 2015 by Larry Toscano, Barchemy specializes in high quality, custom-formulated chocolate and confectionery ingredients for the nutritional bar, bakery, confectionery, and ice cream industry. The company offers complete R&D technical services that can formulate using unique ingredients while maintaining superior quality and delivering better-for-you chocolate products.
