The growing food and chemical industry, supported by the rapidly evolving technology, in addition to providing convenience and assortment to meet the needs of the manufacturer, has also brought up different questions and challenges. One of them is that the halal product was not consumed by the Islamic world in accordance with Islamic laws. Producers in accordance with Islamic rules may obtain the International Certificate of HALAL.
All people have the right to consume a safe food product. In addition, Muslims have the right to consume food, cosmetics and other products in accordance with Islamic rules. For hundreds of years, Muslims have had no problem identifying food and other consumer goods in accordance with Islamic laws. Because the ingredients consumed are more basic and most are home-based products. However, along with recent technological developments, developments in the food industry have also led to product variety and confusion.
HALAL International Certified Product is a clean and safe product at first. In addition, it is a product of raw materials, activity and process, in accordance with Islamic rules at all stages, from raw materials to end product consumption. In this sense, unlawful products, as Islam says, are halal. Some of the non-halal products are:
