Scot­land’s kosher bak­ery closes

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community Life - BY LINDY MARKSONGLASGOW

SCOT­LAND’S SOLE BAK­ERY un­der kashrut su­per­vi­sion closed sud­denly in Glas­gow last week.

The Star Bak­ery sup­plied kosher bread to Calder­wood Lodge Jewish Pri­mary, two del­i­catessens, a cater­ing com­pany and Glas­gow char­i­ta­ble or­gan­i­sa­tions. No one from the bak­ery was avail­able for com­ment.

Glas­gow and West of Scot­land Kashrut Com­mis­sion chair Mal­colm Liv­ing­stone said he was alerted to the clo­sure last Thurs­day, but “could get no re­ply from the bak­ery own­ers”. The com­mu­nity would have to rely on out­side providers, al­though main­stream brands such as Kingsmill were kosher ap­proved.

Mark Co­hen of Mark’s Deli told the JC: “I or­gan­ised a spe­cial de­liv­ery from Manch­ester in or­der not to dis­ap­point my week­end cus­tomers.”
