A group of people looking to the future

Established in 1975, Islamic Services of America has become a world-renowned Halal services organization.

Over the years, there has been growing demand for Halal certified food products both domestically and internationally.

North American companies are seeking to tap into the growing global market for Halal products. With over an estimated one and half billion Muslims world-wide and a halal consumer base much larger, the demand for halal certified food products and non-consumables is most certainly burgeoning at home and abroad.  In the past, Halal consumers had to monitor what they purchased for consumption from their neighborhood retailers.  This included reading all ingredient labels, researching what was in prepared foods, calling food companies, bakeries, dairy companies and others to verify ingredients, and ensuring that restaurants prepared foods in a manner which was permissible.

When Halal certification establishments were non-existent, Muslim consumers would find a farmer who would allow them to slaughter their own Halal meat or seek other viable alternatives - as Halal meat was not readily available.

Times have changed. In response, ISA began inspecting and certifying facilities, processes and ingredients of companies in the food sector and other sectors like pharmaceuticals, health and beauty.  Halal certification by reputable bodies took the guesswork out of complying with Islamic requirements.

Becoming Halal compliant is essential if companies wish to enter and prosper in emerging Halal consumer-based market countries. Knowing which Halal certifier to work with and build a relationship is a critical step in this process and it is very important that the certifier is known and recognized by foreign regulatory agencies.  Rest assured, ISA can certify all consumable and non-consumable products that comply with global Halal standards.
