Cape Town BD has informed us that due to the addition of new products being made at the factory, the Melba Toasts under the Pick ‘n Pay, the MTC and the Woolworths labels are no longer under Beth Din supervision. Only those existing stocks of any of these Melba Toasts bearing the Beth Din parev logo are kosher, but must be regarded as dairy.

Some of the labelling errors highlighted above do occur from time to time as manufacturers are constantly developing new products or packaging. Unfortunately due to tight deadlines or honest mistakes they occasionally print their labels before checking with us. When we are made aware of such errors, we bring it to the manufacturers’ attention in order to make the necessary corrections and we notify the community immediately.


Kind Regards
