KosherFest 2011 is going on as we speak at the Meadowlands convention center in New Jersey. It is the biggest of all the Kosher food conventions and if you want to unveil a new Kosher product, KosherFest is where you do it!
2007 was the first year RJs Kosher Beef Jerky exhibited at KosherFest. That year we also entered into the New Product Competition and our Kosher Beef Jerky won New Product of the Year in the meat, seafood and poultry division. We are the only Kosher Beef Jerky company who has won the KosherFest new product competition and we did it in our debut year at KosherFest!!
We have been back to KosherFest twice after winning the new product competition and it seemed like each year the public was equally as excited as the first. Who knew Kosher Beef Jerky could stir up such a frenzy….I’ll tell you who, RJs Kosher Beef Jerky!! Consumers were shocked to see how many different flavors of jerky we had because past and present Kosher Beef Jerky manufacturers only have had three or four!
When it came time to design our booth for KosherFest, we of course went with the cowboy/western theme. We were decked out in big belt buckles, Wranglers, boots (one with spurs) and gun belt complete with six shooter! We even used a buck knife to open up the little sample bags of jerky. The RJs Kosher Beef Jerky booth was definitely one of the booths to be at. One year we gave out hats that some people actually wore….at the show! It really makes it all worth it when you see how excited people get over your products.

Where’s The Kosher Beef Jerky?!As all of you should know our US troops are over seas risking their lives for our freedom and way of life. What some of you may or may not know is that many of those troops are our fellow Jews in green!
RJ’s Kosher Beef Jerky has been involved over the past 5 years in sending Kosher Beef Jerky over to our Jews in green in Iraq and Afghanistan. I have to admit that the first time we received an order to be shipped to an APO address, i had not idea what that was! But as word spread, we became very familiar with it! Mothers began emailing and ordering for their children who are serving because Kosher meat was impossible to come by. And when the Kosher troops found out about RJ’s Kosher Beef Jerky, they couldn’t order fast enough!
RJ’s Kosher Beef Jerky has donated jerky to several organizations like Operation Far From Home, who send care packages to the US troops serving over seas. They usually send parcels around the holidays, when the troops really miss home!
The most gratifying part for us are the emails had handwritten letters we get from the soldiers and their families about how happy our Kosher Beef Jerky has made them! You couldn’t put a price on that even if you tried and that’s why we keep doing what we do! Even when a soldier pays for an order we always send along some extra jerky for them!
We pray that all our troops, Kosher and not, come home safe and come home soon!
On a lighter side…
This summer lots of parents had us send Kosher Beef Jerky to their children in sleep away camps! I remember growing up and nothing made me happier then to get a care package from home with all my favorite snacks! The thought that children across America were asking their parents to send them RJ’s Kosher Beef Jerky was extremely gratifying, stuff like that makes us proud of what we do!
G-d Bless & Enjoy!!
RJ’s Kosher Beef Jerky
RJ’s Kosher Beef Jerky, is the only Kosher Beef Jerky company that manufactures, packages and distributes its own prodcuts.
We are a family owned and operated business that keeps a close eye on the production of all our jerky. Our jerky is bishul Yisroel. We take jerky very seriously because it is our passion.
Some people may think that our jerky is “too dry”, but that’s what real jerky tastes like. The only flavor that’s allowed to be somewhat gooey is teriyaki, the rest are meant to be dry! The Kosher Beef Jerky business is like any other food business, you will have people that may not like your products!
We do not use any preservatives in our prodcuts We want to keep all our jerky as natural as possible! Our jerky has a shelf life of at least 6 months, as long as our jerky is kept in a cool dry place and with as little air as possible inside the bag.
When we started out making Kosher Beef Jerky, there were only 3 flavors, but now we make 7 different kinds of Kosher Beef Jerky!! These flavors are made from cut beef and they are as follows: Original, Spicy, Teriyaki, Hickory Smoked, BBQ, Sesame and Orange.
For those of you out there that have an issue with cholestorol and still want enjoy Kosher Beef Jerky, we make 3 different kinds of turkey jerky as well. They are, Original, Spicy and Teriyaki.
As we mentioned earlier, some people think that RJ’s Kosher Beef Jerky is “hard to chew”, so we made jerky from ground beef which is easier on the teeth! And yes you guessed it, they come in 3 flavors, Jerky Strips(Original), Spicy Strips and Teriyaki Strips.
Don’t think we forgot about those of you that don’t beef or turkey, because we make salmon jerky too! Our salmon jerky also comes in 3 flavors, Original, Spicy and Teriyaki. We know that some of you are thinking that salmon jerky doesn’t sound appetizing, but it’s quite tasty!!
