Information about the Halal certificate

Halal is a dietary system with clear rules for food which Muslims are expected to observe. Halal food is prepared in accordance with Islamic food laws.

Take meat, for example. Meat is only permitted for consumption if it has been slaughtered in a religious manner. In addition, the animal must have lived in a dignified manner and not have been exposed to stress and mistreatment. There are also regulations for other food products.

Halal International Control (HIC) is an independent organization that issues international Halal certificates. The basis for correct Halal control is accuracy and knowledge combined with a strong sense of integrity. These are the norms and values that justify HIC’s existence. HIC works in close cooperation with the Al Azhar research academy and the Dar ul ifta committee, both based in Cairo. Wit the support of these very reputable committees, HIC is able to give a careful and reliable answer to all Halal nutrition issues.
