We offer you a unique experience about Halal certification

Our mission

We guarantee our Muslim customers 100% Halal products by demonstrating to the industry in a transparent way how to guarantee the safe creation of Halal products. Our potential target group consists of two main groups.

On the one hand, multinational companies in the food industry who want to expand their business by entering or developing the ever-growing market for Halal products. On the other hand, Muslims who want to buy wholly-Halal products.


For them, this is the most important buying factor, because they really want to have 100% Halal quality from all products that are labeled as Halal. Our certification services target both audiences and are able to meet their needs for proper certification for Halal products.

Our history

In 1983, Halal certification was started by Mr. Chaman for meat products when he recognized the importance of exporting it to Islamic countries. He realized the importance of the Halal certification and established the first “Halal office” in Europe. Initially, the certification was started for meat and slaughtering, and in the Netherland, it was considered as one of the most important sources for Halal meat.

Dr. Chaman started the certification activities as a pioneer in Europe, as he realized that Halal sector is continuously developing, and will continue to do so in the future, so there was a need for the certification. This realization led to the development of his Halal certification service.

He recognized that Halal certification is needed for both Muslims and Non-Muslims. While one hand there is a concern of the Muslims about eating Halal and a need for a trustable guarantee that what they are eating is indeed Halal, on the other hand, there is a need to inform European food industry about the standards of Halal products. With competent partners, he established an understandable Halal guideline for the food industry in Europe and on the same time he began to build a transparently auditing and monitoring system.


Today after more than 30 years, everyone is aware of the importance of Halal certification in Europe for Muslims countries, to which the products are exported, as well as for the Muslim communities in Europe.
