The Orthodox Union recently certified Winn-Dixie’s two dairy plants—one in Plant City FL and the other in Hammond LA—bringing the grocer’s total number of private label kosher products to just over 1,000.

Besides Winn-Dixie brand milk, its private label orange juices, teas, and all flavors of Chek soda will now display the kosher symbol on their labels. In addition, Thrifty Maid beverages, Premium fruit drinks, and Prestige ice cream flavors are kosher-certified.

In 2006, Winn-Dixie began its kosher initiative by partnering with the Star-K to provide educational information for its consumers and employees. In April 2007, the Jacksonville FL-based supermarket chain opened a new Star-K certified kosher deli and bakery in Tamarac FL. Most stores that have recently undergone remodeling are now stocking an expanded selection of kosher products.
