The purpose of this feature is to assist people to access Halal Meat within Australia from Halal Certified suppliers.
The benefit for the Halal Consumer in identifying if a product is sourced from a Halal Certified Processing Plant is a tool to assist informing you. The choice on whether to purchase a product and its Halal Suitability is your own. We ask that everyone inform themselves to their own satisfaction with regards to every purchase made and its Halal Suitability.
An Establishment number (EST) is a series of numbers applied to Meat Products distributed into the Australian Domestic and Meat Export Markets. It is a number issued by Federal and State Authorities to identify the originating Processing Plant, Boning Room, Cold Storage Facility or Distribution Centre.
Establishment Numbers are issued for the purposes of Exporting by the Australian Federal Government Department. (Dept of Agriculture, Water and the Environment). Other organisations assisting with the managing of Establishment (EST) numbers include Aus-Meat.
It is important to note that Domestic Meat (Red Meat and Poultry) providers
are not required to apply or hold an Establishment number
Establishment Numbers are issued to a specific Site. If the company that the Establishment Number was issued to changes address, changes name, changes conditions etc. Then it is required to apply for another Establishment Number.
Establishment Numbers are easily identified as a "stamp" number on the section of meat or included on the label.
By viewing the Establishment Number you are identifying the Originating Source of that cut of meat.
It is a tool to assist in the tracking of quality and safety control measures both overseas and locally.
Sorry that EST is not recognised at the moment
Know of a Meat Product that is Halal Certified & available in your local supermarket then submit the EST and Details for our team to confirm then list here if Halal Certified.
Barakah will be with you for helping your Brothers and Sisters...
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.

Though we make every effort to identify suitable venues there are circumstances that change outside of our control.
