Re: Kosher certified honey
I would listen to what he had to say. See what is required to become Kosher and if your operations can meet the standards. Then explain to him that you will comply, and that you will not charge him for the time and effort that you have to invest in order to become Kosher, but neither will he charge you for any Kosher certification. When you think about it the Kosher certification is a benefit to the Jewish community, and for your time and effort in meeting their standards you should receive more for your product. Under no circumstances would I pay him to become certified. You are expending your valuable time and effort to satisfy their needs. If your product is to be sold at the standard price, then you should charge them for this extra effort, after all, it is supposedly for their benefit. We should attempt to go that extra step to help all races or groups etc. but realize that it is for their benefit, and not yours.
