Sushi Central is now also DAIRY (Chalav Yisrael) and PAREV. New address is 1 Elray St. Raedene Estate. Available for sit down, takeaway and delivery. Call/WhatsApp 0603498100 to for more info or to order.


Clover Mama Bake 70% Brick is now DAIRY due to the addition of whey powder, the dairy logo is correctly used on the packaging.

Caring Candies Chocolates previously marked Parev should be regarded as DAIRY due to a change in the suppliers’ raw material. Chocolate products that currently bearing the Parev logo should therefore be regarded as DAIRY. New packaging will be labelled correctly.

Nestle chocolates bearing the BD logo and made in South Africa are still kosher certified DAIRY. **However, various Nestle Chocolates are also being imported into South Africa from around the world. Unfortunately, Nestle chocolates from the UK are confirmed to come from a factory that is not kosher certified. For the Nestle chocolates made in Bulgaria, we currently have no information. Please be sure to check packaging on all Nestle products.

Cape Town Beth Din has notified us that Theonista Kombucha Tea range is no longer kosher certified.

KF Federation of Synagogues, UK has informed us that Higher Living Tea has not renewed their kosher licence, and therefore will be no longer kosher certified, current stock is still okay.
