Please see our Recognition Tab for the PDF-File.
A Pioneer in The Netherlands, Halal Quality Control is now one of the leading and most innovative Halal Certifying Body (HCB) in the European Union.
It all started off in 1983, when the organization was founded by its chairman, Dr. A.M. Al Chaman, who realized that the growing demand and need for the Halal meat products in the Islamic countries needed help from foreign stable markets, such as the EU.
However, due to the differences in culture and religion, this emerging market needed people from healthy educational backgrounds with lots of expertise to conduct audits, system implementation at EU clients claiming to be Halal, trace ability checks, documentation on Halal, and informing EU clients on the Halal Standards
Back in ’83, it all came down to one familiar product: meat. Most markets and countries were concerned about how the permitted animals were slaughtered: Was it done according to the Halal standards (the Sharia Law) or was it slaughtered using a different method? And was it eventually complying to the standards of Halal?
The Halal market in the EU grow and got stabilized by the many Halal Certifying Bodies who have put their efforts and expertise to truly create a label and mark for Halal.
However, we are currently living in the 00’s as of now. Not only did the Halal market grow insanely, it has expanded and become immensely diverse and dynamic. Easily put: a wide market.
Once all about the meats and poultry, now we have scientific backgrounds to prove us that there are dozens of aspects which should be noted as critical points when it comes to being Halal certified by Halal Quality Control.
