    Halal Certification signifies that the products are endorsed by Islam. They can be consumed or drank by Muslims. UBIAC Halal Certification unit is supervised under Islamic institution which has existed since its inception. This increases Halal consumers’ confidence when eating Halal food at hotels and restaurants and also in the form of medicines and vitamins. This is a trustworthy and reliable proof of food producers who claim that their products comply with the strict Halal standards in accordance with Shariah Law.

    Which Products Require Halal Certification?

    The majority of people are familiar with Halal foods with meat-based products. Muslims must make sure that every food item, including processed food and pharmaceuticals is Halal. They are often made up of animal byproducts, or other ingredients that aren’t allowed to be consumed by Muslim consumption.

This makes them Haram and inequitable to be consumed by Muslims.

    Only Halal food production is permitted in the facility and premises. It is not permitted to make use of the same premises and facilities to produce non-halal or Halal production of food. However, these facilities and facilities should be kept clean according to the Syariah Law. This strict procedure is put in place to ensure that that Halal food is not infected with Haram elements, or any other element that are considered to be as filthy (Najis) in accordance with the Syariah Law.

    Halal certification is not applicable to food items only. Raw materials, non-alcohol drinks, and other products needed for food processing pharmaceutical and health products as in traditional herbal products cosmetics, personal care items, cleaning products, everyday consumable items as well as leather-based items (e.g. Furniture, shoes and handbags) are just a few examples of products that need to be Halal to be suitable for Muslim consumption.
