In fact, only 44% of consumers of kosher food products are Jewish. 19% of kosher consumers are made up of other religious groups, who observe dietary laws similar to Orthodox Jews. The remaining 37% are consumers of no particular religious denomination, but rather those with special dietary needs, or those who buy kosher products for health and safety reasons.

U.S. sales of kosher certified items are estimated at $195 billion (nearly 40% of all foods sold), while the market for kosher products is $10.5 billion. There were more than 2500 new kosher items certified in the past 12 months.
