The term "halal" comes from Islamic and means something like "permitted, pure". This term has an important place in the Islamic faith. According to Islamic law, all actions that are permissible and in line with dogmatic requirements are considered "halal". All impermissible actions are summarized under the term "haram".
An important principle for Halal food is that the origin and composition of the food must consistently meet the high Halal requirements. This applies to all animals or ingredients (raw materials) used. Furthermore, halal also focuses on the individual processing or manufacturing steps of a foodstuff, starting with slaughtering, washing and cleaning, packaging, storage, transport and sale.
In each individual production step, it must be ensured that the companies and their staff know and apply all the measures for impeccable hygiene, safety and good manufacturing practice. During the production of halal food, contact with prohibited raw materials and food (haram) must be excluded. In many national and international production facilities, however, products and raw materials that are haram are also processed. Therefore, the strict separation of Halal and Haram products is important. The certification and monitoring of the establishments that produce halal products is carried out by accredited halal certification organizations according to international halal standards.
