The OU Kashrut Department paid a visit to Oasis Foods Company in Hillside, NJ to present the firm with a plaque in recognition of its excellent kosher program and its “open door” policy of welcoming ASK OU programs for hands-on demonstrations of how OU Kosher plant supervision works. The plaque was awarded to Oasis Vice President Leo Nigro and Team Oasis.
Rabbi Yosef Grossman, Senior Educational Rabbinic Coordinator for OU Kosher, who coordinates the programs that visit Oasis Foods facilities, said: “It was a real pleasure to meet Mr. Nigro and Team Oasis at their corporate office. The plaque I presented to Oasis on behalf of the Orthodox Union gave concrete expression to our deeply held respect and admiration for the stellar Kosher program in place at Oasis. It was as well a way to express appreciation to them for always having an open door for the many ASK OU Kosher training and educational programs which they so graciously host. We look forward to many more years of a mutually beneficial relationship.”
Mr. Nigro said, “At Oasis Foods we take great pride in the culture and relationship we have built together with the OU. Our employees, customers and suppliers all benefit by the infrastructure, policies and procedures that we have put in place with the guidance of the OU. We have formed a very strong partnership with the OU and we look forward to what the future brings for both of our organizations.”
