Who are we?

The community boasts numerous fully functioning synagogues, private schools, an academy for the training of Rabbis, kosher restaurants and more.

The Gibraltar Kashrut Authority was established to meet the needs of the ever-growing Kosher food industry in some of the world’s largest food hubs in Spain and neighbouring Portugal and Morocco. It was established with the expertise, vast experience and knowledge of the local food industry to raise the standards of kosher certification available locally. GKA has very quickly gained the trust and confidence of international kashrut experts and clientele worldwide.
