What does Halal mean ?

Halal is an Arabic word meaning permissible.

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 both in countries with a Muslim majority and in Western countries where a significant group of the population professes Islam (France, Germany, Great Britain, Spain).

Halal certification can be (depending on the laws of the country):

  • voluntary
  • mandatory

By offering Halal-certified products, Muslim consumers can be sure that the products they use correspond to their culture and beliefs. 

The Halal certificate indicates compliance with the requirements for Halal food products, which must be observed at all stages:

• obtaining,
• preparation,
• packaging,
• labeling,
• loading and unloading,
• transportation,
• distribution,
• storage,
• layout
• public catering

Why is it important to have a Halal certificate?

There are about 2 billion Muslims in the world. This market segment has grown rapidly over the past few years and is currently valued at approximately $2 trillion. Cosmetics, personal care products, healthcare and pharmaceuticals will see the greatest growth in halal products, as demand for them is growing at a rapid pace.

To complete the halal certification process, companies must go through a three-step process with an advisory group. 

Halal Certification process includes

  • Inspection -- on-site inspection of the installation and process
  • Certification - after completing the assessment and verification, if they are passed, the organization will receive a certificate.
