Is it okay for a food manufacturer to have two supervisions? (OU and Kof-K) If our raw materials are under OU supervision and our co-packing finished goods are under Kof-K. Do we need to streamline this to one company?

    Many products have multiple certifications. Often they all use the same rav hamachshir. You should ask the two organizations about what to do. – sabbahillel Dec 19 '17 at 22:29

    I can't tell you how common this! If you've been to a Jewish wedding, esp. in the Northeast U.S., Chantilly is the main cake / pastry supplier. All their boxes have 4 or 5 hechsherim. It's smart business for them. Mainly because of this, Chantilly pretty much has a monopoly on the simcha cake business. – DanF Dec 19 '17 at 23:58
  • This post is getting some close votes for being practical Halacha. I assume this is based on the first-person wording in the last two sentences and the oddly specific choice of OU and Chaf-K in the first one. If this is indeed a practical question, perhaps you should check out our Meta post regarding such questions. – DonielF Dec 20 '17 at 8:01
