Halal Certification is recognition that the products are permissible under Islamic law. These products are thus edible, drinkable or usable by Muslims. Halal certification from an established Islamic organization helps to build Halal consumer's confidence without suspicion or doubt over the consumption of the food products. It is an authoritative and reliable testimony to support food manufacturers' claim that their products have met strict Halal requirement
When it comes to Halal food, most people think of meat products only. However, Muslims must ensure that all foods, particularly processed foods, pharmaceuticals and non food items like cosmetics are also Halal. Often these products contain animal by-products or other ingredients that are not permissible for Muslim consumption.
