Received from Uachtarán na hÉireann – President of Ireland

Message from President Michael D Higgins

At the conclusion of the holy month of Ramadan, as you prepare to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, may I send my congratulations and best wishes to all members of the Islamic community in Ireland.

In normal circumstances, Ramadan is a time when Muslims around the world can come together, to celebrate with their neighbours and loves ones, in mosques and cultural centres.

This year, as the covid-19 virus has forced the closure of so many public spaces, I hope that Ramadan can be an opportunity to reflect on our common humanity and our shared dependence, as the Islamic community has to try and celebrate its identity in a physically separated, but spiritually united, fashion.

Over the past number of months, our resolve as a nation has been tested and, as President of Ireland, I take heart from the countless demonstrations of solidarity between people of all backgrounds and their fellow citizens. May I thank the Islamic community in Ireland for its valuable contribution in this regard and send you my best wishes for your health and happiness in the year to come.

Michael D Higgins

DHCE Statement on COVID-19

Greetings from the Department of Halal Certification Europe (DHCE) 

DHCE continues to monitor advice to assess the developments and risks following the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). With the safety and wellbeing of our clients and colleagues our highest priority, we are contacting you to advise of our plans as an organisation during this global health issue.

Taking into consideration the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have reviewed our certification processes and put in place a contingency plan in line with the guidelines of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) on the management of Extraordinary or Circumstances affecting accreditation and certification bodies. 

The objective of our contingency plan is to minimize the risk to DHCE clients and colleagues whilst at the same time maintaining certification requirements and mitigating potential global trade risks in these extraordinary circumstances.

  • On-site certification assessment visits/Halal audits that were due to take place in March and April will all be rescheduled to a later date
  • To ensure clients continue to have valid halal certification, renewals of the certification will be granted after successful remote assessment 

These measures are being put in place to ensure the health and safety of our Clients and DHCE colleagues, as well as to maintain robust accredited conformity assessment activities and accredited services in the best possible way. 

Should you require any further clarification on this matter, please contact us.

We wish you all the best.

Ms. Shahida Umar
Managing Director DHCE

IAF Statement on COVID-19

IAF continues to monitor advice to assess the developments and risks following the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The situation has led to safety concerns and travel restrictions in relevant economies that are likely to affect accredited conformity assessment activities.

Following the guidance set out in ID3:2011 (IAF Informative Document For Management of Extraordinary Events or Circumstances Affecting ABs, CABs and Certified Organizations), relevant Accreditation Bodies and Certification Bodies have introduced or are introducing alternative arrangements to conduct assessments. This may involve e.g. making arrangements to conduct assessments remotely or rescheduling activities if necessary. Both ABs and CBs can find the requirements on how to use information and communication technologies to support and maintain the integrity of the audit/assessment process in IAF MD 4 (Mandatory Document for the Use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for Auditing/Assessment Purposes).

These measures have been/are being put in place to ensure the health and safety of Accreditation Body and Certification Body staff, as well as to maintain robust accredited certification and ensure certified organizations are served in the best way possible.

The advice from governments in relevant economies and other sources to assess the risks will be continually monitored as the situation develops. Situation reports can be found on the WHO website.  

Details of your local IAF member contacts can be found on the IAF website.

DHCE granted new accreditation certificate by EIAC with additional scopes to benefit trade between Ireland and the UAE

DHCE has received a new accreditation certificate by the Emirates International Accreditation Centre (EIAC) for three years with additional scopes for lamb, beef and poultry products. This accreditation will facilitate more trade between the two countries in Halal meat products.

Ms Amina Ahmed Mohammed, Executive director of Emirates International Accreditation Centre (EIAC) presented the accreditation certificate to Shaykh Dr Umar Al-Qadri, Director of Department of Halal Certification Europe. His Excellency Ambassador Cronin, Ambassador of Ireland to the UAE was also present during this ceremony.

Finding out that many protein bars have more fat & sugar than a doughnut could tarnish their health halo.

Protein bars are often marketed as a healthy alternative to sugary and fatty snacks, these bars have become a popular choice for hardcore gym goers, health conscious individuals and now anyone who wants a ‘grab and go snack’. Check

Andy Brownsell, Protectivity made the following comment in late 2017, ‘ Our team have conducted comprehensive research that revealed many of the ‘healthy protein bars’ found out in retail actually have more saturated fat and sugar than people originally thought. Over a third that were tested had more saturated fat than a regular doughnut!’

The research compiled and circulated by Andy and his team and others have also revealed that while protein bars are often associated with the clean eating trend, some have artificial sugars and colour’s along with the alarmingly high amounts of fat and sugar already alluded to.

Food for thought.

Irish beef industry sees a catastrophe in a ‘no-deal’ Brexit

As the British House of Commons prepares to vote on the European Union  (EU) withdrawal agreement negotiated by the UK Prime Minister Theresa May, the Irish beef sector has been warning that a no-deal Brexit would cause chaos and dramatically undermine Ireland’s beef exports.

‘Ireland exports 90% of its beef and half of all beef exports go to the UK market. A no-deal Brexit would lead to WTO (World Trade Organisation) tariffs and most probably a very negative movement in exchange rates, so that Irish beef exports to the UK would suddenly be economically unsustainable’, Eddie Punch, general secretary of the Irish Cattle & Sheep Farmers Association (ICSA) stated.

Punch further explained that there was insufficient time to find new international markets at viable prices to replace Ireland’s UK trade and added: ‘ The only solution to avoiding a catastrophe in the short term is to get agreement on some form of emergency intervention buying.’

The Irish Farmers Association (IFA) has warned that Irish beef prices have already been falling-now at €0.25 cents/kg below the same period last year. ‘The consensus is that we need an agreement on the May package or alternatively that Article 50 is extended in order to avoid immediate chaos’, Punch concluded.

Halal sector increasingly important post-Brexit

Halal meat will become increasingly important for the sheep industry post-Brexit, according to Abdalhamid Evans, strategist at halal consultancy Imarat Consulting.

Speaking at the AHDB Beef and Lamb Halal Seminar in Stratford-upon-Avon, Mr Evans said the UK needed to compete in Islamic markets after leaving the EU.

“If we want to be open for business with the rest of the world, a lot of the rest of the world is Muslim,” he said.

“Muslims are the only major religious group projected to grow faster than the world’s population as a whole. The Islamic market is bigger than China.”

“Food is just one element. There are 1.6 billion muslims,” he said.


He encouraged the sector to think more broadly about opportunities from other sectors for the food industry.

“If you look at travel, all travellers need to eat.”
