No one Halal certification is acknowledged in all export markets
Halal certification is an important standard for many food and beverage businesses. When exporting, this certification is vital to enter some markets. Within Australia there are a number of Islamic Bodies that are authorised to issue Halal certificates for companies wishing to be certified. However, there is no consistent acknowledgement of these organisations across all export markets.
An Australian exporter had its certification approved by the Western Australian Halal Authority (a recognized certifier by the Australian Department of Agriculture). Before they began to export their produce to Singapore, they ensured that their plants in WA were accredited.
