Halal Certification in Australia
Within Australia there are a number of Halal Organisations that are authorised to issue Halal Certficiates. We are not an Authority that issues Halal Certificates. We do when Reviewing and Rating Outlets that promote themselves as Halal Certified take every step possible to sight the Certificate in the Outlet and to confirm the Status of that Certificate.
The list below is compiled from our experiences within the Australian Local Market and Overseas Exporting Markets. We provide the information below as a guide to assist consumers that may experience a Halal Certificate issued by one of the providers below. Each Authority listing contains details on address, contact number and link to their website. We strongly encourage should you have any questions with regards to the Halal Certificate issued by an Authority that you contact them directly.
Where an Outlet shows an interest in the benefits of Halal Certification then the team at www.halalfood.com.au are happy to assist with an introduction to the local Halal Authority.
So lets look at the Why, What and Who of Halal Certificates in Australia.
How do you Monitor the Halal Status of your listings?There are two type of Listings provided to assist people in finding a suitable Halal Provider. 1. Premium Listings 2. Standard Listings Premium Listing Providers are members that support Halal Food. Our team will conduct a site visit, have a discussion with the Provider with regards to the range of products that they provide and most importantly we assess Halal Suitability. If they have an issued Halal Certificate our team willsight the Halal Certificate where the Venue is not certified we discuss whether they are "Self Managed Halal" or "Halal Suitable" and make note accordingly. Our team place a note in our system identifying the Halal Authority that issued the Certificate and other information such as Type of Certificate. The Halal Status of Premium Listings has been confirmed by our team. Standard Listing Providers are located with basic features and information at the bottom of search results. These members have been contacted by our team but may not had a site visit conducted, we have asked for confirmation of Halal Certification and who the Halal Authority is but have not confirmed or seen the Certificate. Halal Food give no undertaking or guarantees with regards to the Halal Status of Standard Listings. We ask for anyone using a Standard Listing Venue for providing Halal Products to be active in asking or confirming the Halal Status. We ask thave everyone make enquiries to inform themselves of Halal Status or suitability of a provider before placing an order. Though we make every effort to identify suitable venues there are circumstances that change outside of our control.
Does Halal Food issue Halal Certificates?No. The team at Halal Food are committed to providing access to quality information. We do not issue Halal Certificates. We understand that there are a number of suitably qualified people that work in the Halal Certification Field across Australia that have the knowledge and experience with regards to issuing Halal Certificates. We do not question the process or the Halal Authorities that issue the Certificates. We are happy to assist any Restaurant, Cafe or Business that is interested in the Halal Certification Process by introducing them to suitable Halal Authorities based on information they provide to us.
