The answer is simple ANYONE can write "Kosher," actually many companies write Kosher, such as Knox, Great Lakes, Vital Proteins, eventhough they are not Kosher.

 How did FITGelatins Begin

Most ingredients found an easy kosher substitution

The same product can be made with a kosher equivalent substitute 

Kosher gelatin is a unique ingredient where the process requires a very large amount of kosher raw material being kosher hides or gel bone exclusively made from kosher slaughter 

The process of collection enough raw material to make this viable was a major challenge 

FITGelatins Began 

We began the process back in 1987 meeting with Kind and Knox a major US gelatin bone manufacturer and working out a process where we could collect gel bone from a major US packer at that point Alley Packing was willing to work with us 

Alley packing unfortunately shut down and there was no other Reliable kosher packer with enough capacity.

Fish Gelatin

In 1992 we embarked on a new direction create a viable method of creating kosher gelatin from fish skin.

After much research we filed a patent for the production of gelatin from fish skin and specifically from Tilapia and Nile Perch where the skin had collagen with high levels of hydroxyproline and being warm water fish produced a gelatin with high Bloom and viscosity. Much of the research went in our backyard, in Miami

The US PATENT was filed in 1993 

We were able to find a situation in Costa Rica where we had a good source of of tilapia fish skin on the west coast of Costa Rica

And a small gelatin manufacturer on he east coast of Costa Rica

In 1993 we began the first commercial production of gelatin and through the years, We needed to expand production we reached out to a company n Spain called Junca which is located right next to Gerona where the Rishonim Ramban and Rabbenu Yonah lived. The owner told me he knows the original family name was Solomon and that they were Jews and he was excited to show me the remains of a Mikvah. We did productions there for years
