As a Muslim Owned Company since our founding in 1974, Midamar has overseen our Halal slaughter process. Concurrently we also engage the Halal certification and auditing services of Islamic Services of America (ISA) originally founded by Bill Aossey Jr. in 1975. In the context of Islam or Islamic Law there is no requirement that a company under Muslim ownership be Halal certified if those performing the slaughter and/or supervision are Muslim and the Muslim owners have oversight regarding the Halal supply chain. However, international regulations and custom requirements by foreign countries may require food and other imported goods to bear Halal certification by a globally recognized and reputable Halal certifying body.
Thus you will find that Midamar carries both our own Halal certification protocols as well as those of Islamic Services of America (ISA)
. Further, Midamar has been and continues to be inspected by the religious and health ministries of foreign governments including but not limited to Malaysia, Indonesia, and the UAE. In the end, Halal integrity is a matter of trust and transparency. Midamar proudly welcomes further inquiries into our Halal practices and procedures.
