What Is Halal Certification?
Firstly, let’s start with the basics. Halal food refers to food that is permissible for Muslims to eat under Islamic dietary laws. So, when we say “halal food”, it’s not only about what Muslims can eat, but also how it is prepared and handled. For example, according to halal rules, haram (prohibited) food and drinks such as pork or alcohol cannot be consumed, and animals must be slaughtered in a specific way.
Then, there’s also halal certification. Basically, it’s a procedure to check if the food or product is in line with Islamic dietary laws. Usually, a halal certifying body does this inspection, and they check everything — from the ingredients to the way it’s prepared, cooked, and handled. In Singapore, the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) is the authority responsible for halal certification, ensuring that the entire food preparation process follows the halal rules.
Once the product or food is halal certified, it can have a special halal logo or symbol. This shows that it is safe for consumption according to Islamic dietary laws.
Uncle DiDi’s Journey to Halal Certification
Uncle DiDi decided to get halal certification because we believe in being inclusive and ensuring that everyone can enjoy our snacks without worrying about the ingredients or preparation methods.
There are multiple steps to go through to get a halal certification in Singapore. First, we checked and ensured all our products and processes complied with the strict halal requirements. Can’t have no haram ingredients or methods after all.
Then, we submitted an application to MUIS, and it’s not just some simple application lah. It was detailed and thorough, explaining everything about our products and processes.
After that, MUIS will conduct an audit to double-check everything. They’ll review everything from the ingredients used to how it’s manufactured, stored, and transported, and even check the labelling to make sure it’s all legit. If we pass the audit and meet all the requirements, we will receive the halal certification and can put the halal logo on our products. This way, our Muslim friends can be assured that the products they consume comply with Islamic law.
So, you see lah, it’s a long and important process to make sure that products are halal certified. But at the end of the day, it’s worth it. Uncle DiDi is proud to announce that we got awarded the halal certification for all our products. Power ah!
