Halal Food Certification by IFI
Ireland is well known for its beef and dairy production, and has, for many years been a leading exporter of Halal meat and dairy products to Muslim countries. The Islamic Foundation of Ireland has been acting as the certifying body for Halal meat exported from Ireland to Muslim countries since 1981.
The Islamic Foundation of Ireland is recognised as the sole Halal Certifying Authority in Ireland by Kuwait Municipality (Notice No. 46/83) and by the General Secretariat of Municipalities in the United Arab Emirates since the year 2000, (now by the Ministry of Environment and Water which has replaced the Secretariat of the Municipalities in being the authority responsible for checking food imports into the UAE.). Hence the only valid Halal Certification for Ireland has to be issued by the Islamic Foundation of Ireland.
Additionally, in October 2015 the IFI has been awarded prestigious Halal Meat & Food Certification for Ireland by the World Halal Food Council. The IFI is the only Irish Halal Certification Authority recognized by the World Halal Food Council. For further details visit the Council's website: www.whfc-halal.com
At present the Islamic Foundation of Ireland is certifying consignments of beef, lamb, turkey, ducks and processed meat products to Muslim countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Bahrain and to Muslim communities living in non-Muslim countries. It also certifies dairy products exported from Ireland to various countries as well as other non-meat processed food.
