ISA Director's Letter
Greetings from ISA
It’s my pleasure and my duty to lead our organization as we
endeavor to not only meet the Halal needs of our global customers and consumers
but to make it our mission to exceed their expectations.
The Halal industry spans everything from the slaughter and
processing of meat and poultry to food ingredients and finished products to
non-food industrial goods and machinery to pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
Our customers are seeking reputable Halal certification of
their goods and products to help them remain competitive in their existing
markets and to expand and reach new markets.
Global Halal consumers and their respective countries are
seeking the same reputable Halal certification for goods and products that
reach their stores, their tables and ultimately their families. As a result, we carefully follow criteria and
document processes that analyze product contents and the facilities where they
are produced. In some cases, we work
with other Halal certifying bodies we trust and know to support their
verification and certification processes of raw materials, ingredients or
processes that precede our final certification steps.
Hence, it is through these efforts that we bring
traceability and accountability to the Halal certification process – something
ISA has been doing for a long time and will continue to do for an even longer
