Halal 101

Pillar Description
Halal Food Halal food is food that is permissible according to Islamic law. It is usually prepared with ingredients that are allowed under Islamic dietary guidelines.

Halal food is prepared in a way that meets the strict dietary requirements of the Islamic faith.

This includes avoiding unclean animals, such as pigs, and preparing the food in a way that does not involve the consumption of alcohol or other prohibited substances.

Halal Certification Halal certification is a process by which a product complies with Islamic dietary laws.

This is usually done by an independent body, such as a religious authority, that specialises in halal certification.

The certification process ensures that the product does not contain any ingredients or components prohibited by Islamic law and has been prepared according to halal guidelines.

Halal Logo The halal logo is a specific symbol or phrase that appears on products certified as meeting Islamic law requirements.

The logo is typically green and may feature the crescent moon and star.

Halal Premise A halal premise is a facility where food or other products are produced, processed, stored, or served by Islamic law.

This includes using ingredients, utensils, and equipment that meet specific standards.

Halal premises must also ensure that all staff, and anyone who works in the facility, know the regulations and take steps to ensure that all products and activities comply with them.

Halal Product Halal products are products that comply with Islamic law and its principles.

This includes medicines, cosmetics, and other products.

These products must meet specific standards, such as not containing alcohol, pork, or other prohibited ingredients.

The label of a product must also clearly state that it is Halal.

Halal Audit The halal audit examines and verifies that products, services, and practices comply with Islamic laws and regulations. It is a crucial step in the halal certification process, which is important for Muslim consumers who seek to purchase goods and services permissible under Islamic law.

During a halal audit, a qualified auditor will review and assess the entire production process, from sourcing of ingredients to packaging and distribution, to ensure that no haram (forbidden) elements are present.

The auditor will also check that the production process meets ethical and environmental standards. The ultimate goal of a halal audit is to assure Muslim consumers that the product or service is halal and can be consumed or used without compromising their religious beliefs.

Halal Consultation Halal consultation is the process of consulting with knowledgeable individuals to ensure that the food and products produced and consumed are permissible according to Islamic law.

Halal consultation ensures that all products, ingredients, and production methods comply with Islamic requirements.

This includes looking at the ingredients, production methods, and the source of the product.

Consultants may also be involved in the certification process of certain products.
