Importance of Halal Certification

Halal is an Arabic term which means lawful or permitted – it applies to any object or action that is permissible. Halal and Haram relate to all aspects of everyday life.

Modern processing and globalised markets make it increasingly difficult for Halal consumers to know how products are produced and if they are suitable for Halal use. A problem that is becoming ever more apparent, with Pew Research projecting that Halal consumers are one of the fastest growing consumer segments (3 Billion by 2060), as well as being a younger and more engaged consumer base. Halal certification helps consumers make informed decisions about the products they purchase. Many consumers only buy products bearing the Halal Logo. A point which was reiterated by the 2015 Dialrel report conducted by Cardiff University that stated: ‘Certification organisations are the key tool in opening up market possibilities’.

The demand from Halal consumers has led many countries to make Halal certification a legal requirement for imported goods. Today, Halal certification is essential for companies to succeed in the global market.
