HALAL / Introduction to Halal Product Certification
✾ Halal is an Arabic word that means “permissible” or “lawful”. Halal certification is a certification scheme and certification mark that can be assigned to products or services produced in accordance with Islamic Sharia law for use by Muslims.
✾ Halal products mean compliance with the requirements for raw materials used in the manufacture of halal products, as well as for work, production facilities, tools used by employees, work clothes and labels.
✾ The recognition that halal products are clean and safe is growing, which is why many companies are receiving halal certifications for food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and beverages.
✾ Companies can export halal products to Islamic countries after their qualification has been verified after submitting documents that meet Halal's requirements and standards, and audit.
