Halal Certification

The Halal certificate is a document that guarantees that products and services aimed at the Muslim population meet the requirements of Islamic law and therefore are suitable for consumption in both Muslim-majority countries and in Western countries where there are significant population groups who practice Islam (France, Germany, United Kingdom, Spain). Halal certification is a process that ensures the features and quality of the products according to the rules established by the Islamic Council that allow the use of the mark Halal. It is mainly applied to meat products and other food products such as milk, canned food and additives. Specifically, for meat products Halal certifies that the animals were slaughtered in a single cut, thoroughly bled, and their meat has not been in contact with animals slaughtered otherwise and, especially, with pork. Products that are Halal certified are often marked with a Halal symbol.
