Expand your customer base with approximately 400,000 new customers in Sweden, and with many more on exports to other countries!
One obvious problem in the Western world, including in Sweden is that the individual Muslim has difficult to know if a package of more or less ready-produced food contains something that might be illegal to eat according to Islam. Is it permitted by Islam for a devout Muslim to eat margarine, sauce or bread? The possibility exists that the product contains alcohol, additives from dead insects, gelatin or animal fat derived from pigs or non-halal slaughted animals.
There are about 1.3 billion Muslims worldwide, of which 50 million live in Eurpoa. The number of Muslims in Sweden is estimated to 400,000 and the majority of them are interested to buy food and other products that are allowed "Halal" according to Islamic shariah, a fairly large customer potential that many Swedish companies to date, unfortunately disregarded.
Islamguidens Halalcertifiering AB which is established by the organisation Islamguiden.com as the first Halal Certification Body in Sweden helps both companies to reach out with their products to new customers and Muslim consumers by making it easier for them to find halal food and branded products in supermarkets and shops.
Materials and additives that are not halal can be find in many products or foods today such as candy, pastries and cakes, medicines, bread, ice cream, meat dishes, cheese and dairy products, etc., and it is therefore difficult for the average person to determine whether a particular added is allowed or not if it does not declared on the food packaging.
We know from experience that a Muslim always choose a halal branded product over one that is not. By putting our halal stamp on your products you reach a new customer base of around 400,000 Muslims in Sweden and more than a billion when exporting your products to countries outside Sweden.
Swedish food producers may not always need to adapt their products to the Muslim consumer, many of these products may already be permissible for Muslims, but it is neither the producer or the Muslim consumer has knowledge of it. With a Halal Certificate and a Halal stamp on the product package, we can prevent this confusion.
Examples of companies that can benefit from our halal concept are:
- Food Chains
- Food producers
- Ice cream makers
- Dairy Producers
- Slaughtering houses
- Medicine Company
- Health Food Stores and more.
- Interest-free banks and lending institutions.
We halal certify also products destined for the export market in such Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Middle East, North Africa and Singapore.
