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.
