“Halal” is an Arabic word and can be translated as “permitted” and “permissible”. Thus Halal comprises all things and actions that are permitted, permissible and conform to Islam from an Islamic point of view.
Most people know the term halal in connection with food production and consumption. However, the concept is much broader and not only limited to the slaughter of animals according to Islamic guidelines. For example, the Halal concept obliges companies to observe certain guidelines of hygiene and safety in the production process.
The food sector:
Food derived from plants is basically “halal”, except for intoxicating and toxic products. “Haram” includes all things that Muslims are not allowed to consume.
In Muslim countries and also by Muslim customers in Germany it is assumed that food is “halal” according to religious regulations. By means of certification, the company assures its customers that the food is produced in accordance with Islamic religious dietary regulations. In addition to the origin of the goods and the production site, the presence of pork or alcohol in the products is also checked by means of chemical analyses.
