Halal is no longer just a purely religious issue, as it has become a global symbol for quality assurance and lifestyle


The Halal marketplace is emerging as one of the most lucrative and influential market arenas in the world today. Halal is no longer just a purely religious issue, as it has become a global symbol for quality assurance and lifestyle choice. It is a new market force that should not be overlooked.

With a global consumer base of about 1.9 billion across 112 countries, the Halal market is estimated to be worth trillions of Euros.

DHC specializes in overseeing, auditing and certifying Halal food products and productions. DHC also provides consultation to companies that wish to export to the Middle East and cater for the Halal market.

DHC has certified more than 500 food products and 50 production sites and our clients are successfully exporting Halal food products to Europe, Asia, Middle East, African and Australia.
