Qatari Royal Family Owned Department Store Harrods Gains Kosher Certification
Harrods, the famed London department store owned by the Qatari royal family, has gained kosher certification from the Sephardi Kashrut authority and is now advertising kosher weddings.
Kosher caterer Philip Small, who has been advising the company for two years, told the Jewish Chronicle that the fact that Harrods want to do kosher catering “is just amazing.”
A Harrods spokesperson told the Jewish Chronicle: “The resource is truly unique, pulling together the extensive range of departments and services available at Harrods.
“And, by this token, Harrods wanted to ensure that no stone was left unturned for the services offered to couples, with the same exceptional quality and creativity applied to kosher weddings.”
According to the Jewish Chronicle, two weddings are already in the works.
