Two British Kosher Food Companies Raided for Illegal Workers

Two British kosher food companies were raided for having illegal workers.

The Great Food Company and Gilbert Kosher Foods could be fined up to $113,000, The Jewish Chronicle reported.

Five men working for The Great Food Company were found to be Sri Lankan and face charges for having counterfeit documents. Two men from Gilbert Kosher Foods were found to be working illegally while their asylum applications are being processed, according to the Chronicle.

British Border Agency staff interrogated 56 employees in the raid, according to the newspaper.

Both companies have the same managing director, who is facing stiff fines for knowingly hiring illegal workers.
