Halal Assure-IP (HAIP) Certification

Halal Assure-IP has developed a robust “Halal Assure-IP Standard HAIP 760011” which is 100% compatible with Holy Book Qur’an & Hadith and leading European and International standards; BRC, ABM and with the  guidelines issued by  FSA, FDA, USDA, SASO, DMFCD and CODEX and has  inbuilt clauses of HACCP system. This makes it highly competent and provides guidance to all food and non-food producers, processers, caterers, logistic companies and retailers.

Halal Assure-IP certification system is based on Identity Preservation (IP) which implies that every ingredient that goes into the making of a product is traced back to its source and its integrity is maintained throughout the Whole Supply Chain. 

Halal food is the food which is permissible to eat according to the Islamic dietary law. Growth in international food trade (which is estimated about £640 billion per year), scientific and technological progress, in addition to increased awareness among Muslim regarding the health advantages of Halal has resulted in great interest in Halal foods. So, great care is being taken recently to know the sources of Halal foods and their processing and preparation methods. 

The UK has recently witnessed various incidences of Halal food being contaminated with pork as result of which the competencies of the certifying bodies has been questioned and people have lost faith their certification systems. According to the EBLEX report of Feb 2013, “The Halal meat market is a multi-million pound contributor to the British economy and it’s an area that abattoirs, butchers, processors and retailers can’t afford to overlook”.
