CERTIFICATION IN INDIA

HALAL CERTIFICATION

What is Halal Certification?

Halal certification states that the food or the products are permissible for the followers of Islam and no haram product or procedure is used while its manufacturing or processing.

In many Islamic countries, Halal certification is given by the government. In India, FSSAI (Food Safety and Standards Authority of India) certification can be seen on almost all the processed foods but this authority doesn’t give halal certification in India.  Halal certification is given by many private companies in India which marks the food or products permissible for the followers of Islam.

FAQ

Halal certification is needed to inform Muslim consumers that products are prepared by halal methods. Through the halal assurance system, haram products can be identified. Halal labeling legislation also protects the rights of consumers. Having a specific logo demarcates food products as permissible and impermissible.

In draining the blood from the animal, the halal method ensures the purity of the meat that you eventually consume. Importantly, it also means that there is no uric acid in the meat. Uric acid can cause issues with your kidneys, skin, and blood. Non-halal meat often contains this acid, particularly in poultry.
What is the process of getting Halal Certification?
  1. Gather product information and supporting documentation, including ingredient details for your products.
  2. Submit a Halal Certification application and pay application fees.
  3. Wait for inspectors to contact you.

Muslims simply do not eat pork or pork products because God has prohibited it. A Muslim spends his or her life endeavouring to please God by worshipping Him and obeying His laws, or rules. One of those rules is that the eating pork, or pork products is forbidden.
