Founded in 1892 the Board’s original objectives included overseeing the supply of Kosher meat to the community, granting licenses and exercise authority over all butchers supplying Kosher meat, and making provisions for burial of the poorer congregations. At the beginning of 2011 a major re-construction of the organization took place with the formation of four limited companies to replace the somewhat antiquated infrastructure. These are known as Manchester Beth Din Ltd, MBD Kosher Certification Services Ltd and MBD Shechita Services Ltd and MBD Community Mikvah Ltd.
