BRAZIL - Brazilian companies are increasingly getting halal certification, guarenteeing the presence of their products in the Muslim countries.

Over 300 Brazilian companies have already recieved halal certification, guarenteeing that their products may be consumed in Muslim companies reports The Brazil-Arab News Agency.

Halal certification guarentees that food is produced according to the regulations of Islamic law and so is allowed for consumption by around 1.3 billion Muslims worldside.

"Ninety per cent of Brazilian companies are currently getting ready to receive halal certification," Ali Saifi, Vice President of the Centre for Promotion of Islam to Latin America (CDIAL) told The Brazil-Arab News Agency.

CDIAL is one of the institutions that certifies slaughterhouses for halal slaughter of beef and poultry. According to the Federation of Muslim Associations of Brazil (Fambras), Brazilian companies are conscious of the importance of halal, not questioning the demands necessary for certification. They always show interest in adapting, when it is necessary, understanding that getting halal certification, far from being a hardship, is an addition to quality and excellence.
