Halal means that something is permitted, allowed or lawful according to Islamic laws. Halal certification is an assurance that a particular product has been thoroughly investigated and found to conform to Islamic laws, and therefore suitable for halal consumers.
A booming business, the halal-certified food and beverage sector had revenues of approximately $415 billion in 2015, with predictions of expenditure reaching $1.9 trillion by 2021.
The accreditations Halal Certification Europe (HCE) has obtained have allowed its clients to export their products worldwide. HCE has many official accreditations from governmental halal organisations, including, but not limited to, GAC (Gulf Countries), JAKIM (Malaysia), MUI (Indonesia), MUIS (Singapore), World Halal Food Council (WHFC) and ESMA (UAE, Dubai).
Halal certification boosts sales and enhances marketability by opening up new markets and giving confidence to consumers. It allows companies to meet importing countries' requirements, especially to the largest expanding halal markets in the world. Products certified by HCE as halal can display the HCE halal logo making them easily recognisable to consumers, and HCE halal standards and accreditations ensure that certification is trusted and gives the utmost consumer confidence.
By providing tailored, quality customer service, HCE aims to ease its customers' paths to certification through clear guidance and support. Through its network of professionals around the world, it provides first-class expertise to the halal industry.
