The World Halal Food Council (WHFC) was founded in 1999 by the Assessment Institute for Food, Drugs and Cosmetics of the Indonesian Council of Ulama (LPPOM MUI). The idea of the Council is to bring the Halal certifying bodies world-wide together to enhance mutual cooperation between them. One of the purposes of the Council is to develop and maintain a unique global Halal standard. The headquarters of the Council is in Jakarta, Indonesia. Currently there are 46 certification bodies from 25 countries which are members of the Council.
