Globalisation and the complex ecosystem of the supply chain in the export and import trading connect us in a way that has never been before. For example, the food on our plate is a combination from various parts of the world. This brings us to the question, how are we going to verify the Halal elements, shall we remain to refer only to the local Halal body while the sources are worldwide? The interdependency and intercultural of the world population have now called for an urgent need to have open data access to Halal certification in every part of the world to validate the assurance of Halal products we consume every day.
As Muslims, we understand the fact that non-certified Halal products are not necessarily non-Halal. Muslim conversations and debates today revolved around the importance of Halal certifications to ensure the factors of Halal assurance such as hygiene, safety, and cleanliness of products and services.
Halal, a term derived from the Arabic word meaning “lawful” is the key obligation to every Muslim in all aspects of life, especially the most uncompromising aspects, food consumption. This is clearly stated in Surah Al-Baqarah, verse 186 “O mankind! Eat from whatever is on earth (that is) lawful and good”.
Understanding the importance of Halal to a close 2 billion world Muslim population, Verify Halal works collaboratively with Certification Bodies (CB) around the globe to develop a digitalized and comprehensive Halal Assurance System (HAS) for a convenient way of Halal verification and sourcing.
