HALAL-SLAUGHTER

The slaughtering is done in the presence of a Muslim.

No animal is allowed to be slaughtered except to meet the human need for food.

 

If an animal is slaughtered for this purpose, the name of Providence is invoked in order to legitimate the act.

 

No animal should be subject to any distress or fear prior to the slaughter.

 

There are strict rules governing this act designed to reduce or eliminate the distress felt by the animal.

Only the sharpest and least painful instruments can be used in the slaughtering process.

Throughout the cycle of raising of livestock for human consumption, the utmost courtesy and respect towards the animal is mandatory. These are the irreducible requirements for Halal certification.

The audits take place annually, except there are changes within the production.

 

Validity of the Halal Certificate is valid for one year. 

For meat exports, a Halal certificate accompanying each shipment is required for each consignment.

Special staff training should be carried out. A Halal officer must be named.

 

A Halal logo is provided for certified products.
