What is Halal Certification
How does Halal Certification work?
When it comes to halal certification, it is a must-have for a company that wants to market its products to the gulf markets or a market that has a Muslim dominated customer base. In many countries, the government has made it mandatory that all the products manufactured or imported in their country are halal certified. Hence when a company wants to expand the market to such countries, they apply for the halal certification. The certifying authorities verify the manufacturing process as well as the raw materials use and many other aspects of quality. Once they are certified, the product is granted a halal certification. This helps the manufacturers in ensuring the customers that the products are of the highest quality.
What does it mean when food is Halal Certified?
When a food product has halal certification, it ensures the customers that it has been manufacturing keeping all the good manufacturing practices in mind and also it is permissible to consume it under Islamic law. The halal certification ensures that the quality of the food is best and the raw materials used for the manufacturing of the products are permitted under the sharia or Islamic law. It also means that the governments of Gulf countries have no objection if the product is imported in these countries as it has followed the halal guidelines during manufacturers.
