AGFOCERT HALAL Certification Services



Halal is an Arabic word meaning permissible. Halal certified product means that the product is permissible or acceptable under Islamic law. In order for the products or services to obtain this certificate, they must be from an acceptable source and fullfill other requirements of HALAL.

Offering halal certified products ensures that the products they use are compatible with their culture and beliefs.


There are about 2 billion Muslims in the world.  This market segment has shown a rapid growth rate over the past few years and is now worth about $US2 trillion.

Did you know while Halal Certification creates an assurance mechanism against Islamic rules and Islamic sensitivities, and it is also a certification option that contributes added value in terms of product / service quality and safety?

In this context, AGFOCERT provides HALAL certification services in a wide range of scopes for various sectors with its profound experience in management system and product certifications.

Halal Certification Process

To complete the Halal Certification process, companies must complete a three-stage process with an advisory group. This process includes:

  • Evaluation - description of the company and the need to obtain Halal Certificate
  • Assessment - on-site assessment of the plant and process
  • Certification - after the evaluation and audit is completed, the organization will be certified if the requirements are satisfied.

The demand for products produced in accordance with Islamic conditions is increasing day by day. We see that Halal Certificate, which is a kind of assurance of production according to Islamic conditions, has been questioned by Muslims in many world countries, especially in Europe, in recent years. It is very important that products produced according to Islamic methods also meeting  food safety criteria. In this context, a controlled and systematic assessment is required by people who are experts in food production / processing and related Islamic provisions for Halal product assurance.
