Halal Certification is a recognition that the products are premissible under Islamic law. These products are thus edible, drinkable or usable by Muslim people all over the world.
Why Halal Certification?
Halal certification is a process by which a credible Islamic organization certifies that a company's products can be lawfully consumed by Muslims. Those who meet the criteria for certification are given halal certificates, and they may use the halal symbol on their products and advertising.
Food labeling laws around the world require that claims made on the product label be certified as true. A "halal certified" stamp on a label is often seen by Muslim customers as a sign of a trustworthy or superior product. Such a stamp may even be required for the export of food to certain Muslim countries.
Products that are halal certified are often marked with a halal symbol, or simply the letter M (as the letter K is used to identify kosher products.)
