Halal is an Arabic term, it is an object or an action which is permissible to use, according to Islamic law.
The term covers and designates not only food and drink as permissible according to Islamic law, but also all matters of daily life. Haram means the opposite-unlawful or forbidden that which the Lawgiver absolutely prohibited; anyone who engages in it is liable to incur the punishment of Allah in the Hereafter as well as a legal punishment in this world.
Halal and haram are universal terms that apply to all facets of life. However, we use these terms only in relation to food products, meat products, cosmetics, personal care products, food ingredients, and food contact materials.
The objective of the legislation HALAL is to ensure that products and services offered by an organization, to customers of Islamic practice, meet the conditions required by Islamic law.
- Ensure confidence in purchasing of products without questioning its authenticity.
- Enhance marketability of products in Muslim countries/markets
- Improve the hygiene and food quality.
