Sunrider has received many prestigious certifications, honors, and awards since 1982. Here is a highlight of some of those:
Sunrider understands that Kosher-certified products are important to many of its Independent Business Owners and consumers. Therefore, many of the products manufactured by Sunrider Manufacturing, L.P. are certified Kosher by Star-K, one of the most respected Kosher-certification agencies in the world. Sunrider® products that are certified by Star-K are also certified by the Chief Rabbinate of Israel, which is the supreme Jewish religious governing body in the state of Israel, controlling many aspects of life, including Kosher certification.

Kosher Criteria & Sunrider Quality
The barometer of Kosher and non-Kosher depends primarily on two variables: the source of the ingredients and the status of the production equipment. Kosher certification, which is the guarantee that the food meets Kosher requirements, revolves around these two criteria. Sunrider self-manufactures its products in state-of-the-art facilities, with the highest quality control, and carefully formulates all of its products. These factors contribute to achieving Kosher certification and to the uncompromised quality of all Sunrider® products.

Sunrider has always pursued ways to increase the satisfaction level of the consumers who use our products. Obtaining halal certification was another important benefit for our consumers, and we proudly display the halal-certified logo on our packaging. Halal certification by IFANCA (Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America) represents a guarantee that what the consumer is purchasing is 100% halal.
What is Halal?
Halal is an Arabic word meaning “lawful” or “permitted.” The Arabic word with the opposite meaning of halal is haram, which means “unlawful” or “prohibited.” These terms are generally used to describe something that a Muslim is permitted to eat, drink, or use. Whether a product can be deemed halal depends primarily on two variables: the source of the ingredients and the status of the production equipment. IFANCA halal certification takes both criteria into consideration when determining whether a product meets halal requirements.
IFANCA is a nonprofit Islamic organization “dedicated to promote halal food and the institution of halal.” IFANCA is acknowledged by all Muslim countries and halal importing regions as a reputable halal-certifying agency. IFANCA certifies halal products in all major food industries, as well as applying its certification standards in the areas of cosmetics, packaging materials, and chemicals. IFANCA certifies halal food production in over 20 countries around the globe and is the leading halal-food certification organization in North America.
