According to the Jewish food law, which is derived from the Bible, the term Kosher refers to products that are suitable for consumption by the Jews. The Kosher certificate has as a requirement the appropriate choice of raw materials and ingredients as well as the way of production of the specific products. It is addressed to companies that target global markets as Kosher certified products and paves the way for new markets and customers.
The word Halal, in Arabic, means what is accepted by the Islamic law. Therefore, Halal certified products are those that can be consumed by Muslims. These products, food or not, follow specific production processes, packaging and traceability that proves their purity. It is addressed to companies engaged in international trade as well as to all companies that want to operate even in local markets, giving added value to their final product.
