Jews have always placed great emphasis on dietary self-control. The main principles of Kosher are laid down in the Five Books of Moses and are classified as “statutes” – no reason is given for keeping them, other than Jews are commanded to do so. Nevertheless Rabbis have always stressed their essential role in preserving Jewish life. Just as a healthy diet is good for the body, so Jews keep kosher because it is good for the soul.
Keeping kosher is an intrinsic part of the daily life of a Jew. Kosher foods are divided into three categories: meat, dairy and pareve. The third category, pareve, is comprised of foods which are neither meat nor dairy and may therefore be eaten with either. This means that they contain no meat or dairy derivatives, and have not been cooked or mixed with any meat or dairy foods. Pareve foods present fewer kosher complexities than meat or dairy foods.
Halal is a Quranic term that means ‘permitted’ or ‘lawful’. Halal, when used in relation to food, means permissible for consumption by Muslims based on the Islamic law. It is the responsibility of a Muslim to ensure that any food consumed (or even any businesses performed) in their daily lives is clean, hygienic and not detrimental to either their health or well-being. Halal promotes cleanliness in all aspects of a person and is the new benchmark for quality.
Halal Certification is an assurance of quality products that have met rigorous internationally accepted standards in production and hygiene.
Halal Certification is becoming more relevant in today’s market mainly because people are more aware of the Halal concept. It extends beyond religious matters, to the products or services being deemed safe for consumption and also have health benefits.
