1st addition – January 2008
This is the first attempt to put together an extensive list of Kosher products that are available in Sri Lanka. If you have any questions or comments, or if you find any Kosher product not mentioned in the list, please let us know, so we can update the list.
For more information please contact us.

  • Every product bearing a kosher symbol such as (OU, OK etc.) or under a specific rabbinical supervision is under their responsibility.
  • Products preceded by (D) contain milk and are not Chalav Israel.
  • If a certain product is Kosher, it does not mean that other products of the same company are Kosher.
  • If a certain product has a Kosher symbol or rabbinical supervision, it does not mean that thesame product without the symbol or supervision is Kosher. Some ingredients may vary.
  • All of these products are Kosher for the whole year but not for Pesach, unless otherwise mentioned.
  • Some of the products may be found almost everywhere. Others may be found at Keels supermarket, Colpitiya Market, Arpico and other big supermarkets (mostly in Colombo).
  • Mehadrin (Glatt Kosher) is the highest level of Kosher supervision (higher than the basic level). Mehadrin Products are marked by star in the last column.
