Why Halal Certification?

  • With a global consumer base of about 1.9 billion Muslims across 112 countries, the Halal market size is estimated to be worth of trillions of US Dollars.
  • There is an increasing demand for Halal certified products.
  • The booming Muslims population in the Middle East, North & South Africa, South and South Asia, the former Soviet Union and China present a lucrative chain for the food market.
  • Today, the two largest markets for Halal products are Southeast Asia and the Middle East. These areas equal more than 400 million Muslim consumers.
  • Muslims do only eat Halal food, however non-Muslims can eat Halal food.
  • A Halal certificate is a guarantee that the products comply with the Islamic dietary requirements or Islamic lifestyle.
  • Halal certification significantly enhances the marketability of your products.
  • If you are exporting or planning to export to Muslim-majority countries then the Halal certificate will allow you to meet one of the important requirements by the importing countries.

The primary reason for Halal Certification is to serve the national and international Muslim communities in meeting their religious compliance. The concept of Halal applies to a wide range of goods and services used in a Muslim’s daily life. Muslim consumers choose products because it is in compliance with the process and procedure as defined by Islamic Law.

Industry and producers of goods and services are often not aware of these requirements. Subsequently, they overlook the needs of this segment of our population. DHCE promotes unified Standards of acceptance and certification. A unified standard bridges the gap between Muslim consumers and the industry. It establishes credibility and assures the Muslim consumer of strict compliance to the Halal process:

  • Purity and cleanliness of the sources from which products are derived and the process by which they are made.
  • Safety of human lives by consuming only that which is wholesome and healthy
  • Integrity and ethical way of life by avoiding cruelty to animals, harm to the environment and unfair business practices.
  • In other words, Halal is a way of life that benefits an individual in their physical and spiritual wellbeing.
  • Halal is for everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you are a Muslim or not – Halal is the ultimate stamp of purity and safety guaranteeing superior quality products.
