Al-Safa Halal

Al-Safa Halal ni satu jenama pengeluar produk makanan halal yang popular di area US dan Canada. Macam-macam produk yang diorang ni keluarkan. All the products are certified Zabiha or being hand slaughtered by a Muslim by The Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America (IFANCA). IFANCA is recognized by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food Safety Inspection Service as well as by Rabita al-Alam al-Islami (World Muslim League), Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura (MUIS), Majlis Ulema Islam Indonesia (MUI), Malaysian Prime Minister's Department-Islamic Affairs Division and several other government and non-government organizations, as a certifying agency for HALAL slaughter and HALAL products.

Bila baca pasal history product halal in the US, baru la tau yang dalam tahun 1992, Kerajaan Malaysia ada hantar para pegawai yang berkaitan to meet with several beef companies, hoping to find a facility that would be willing to convert to Zabiha in order to supply Halal beef to their country. One of the companies approached was MGI Beef Packers, a mid-sized plant that was owned and operated by a group of investors, including the Muller family. After lengthy discussions with Islamic leaders and a subsequent thorough understanding of Halal procedures, MGI agreed to convert its entire slaughter to Zabiha, and soon thereafter began shipping Halal beef not only to Malaysia but to other Muslim countries as well. On September 1, 1999 AL SAFA HALAL was created by the Muller family together with two other partners, Otter Capital and Packaged Food Investors. Today, AL SAFA is widely distributed to many grocery stores and foodservice operations throughout North America. Besar jugak peranan Malaysia dalam mengembangkan produk halal dunia.

Alhamdulillah product Al-Safa Halal ni senang kami nak dapatkan. Boleh dibeli kat Shoprite belakang rumah ni je. Produk diorang ni pun macam-macam ada. Chicken nugget, chicken strips, wieners, franks, patties sampai la ke pizza dan samosa. Rasanya product halal ni dah mula dapat demand dalam market kat US ni. Maybe sebab tu la agaknya, produk-produk halal ni makin senang nak carik.

I guess the next idea is to publicize the idea that halal meat is a better process and a healthy choice for people to consume halal food due to its rigorous process.

Now this remains for researchers, and later the advertiser can do all the work.

Ayoi! Long time no hear :) Aku tak tau kau masih ujud di donia ini. Hehehe. Nice article about dat halal process etc.

talking about all this halaal thinggy, aku mmg terasa yang halaal certification is done better overseas. I mean, lebih jujur n ikhlas n I believe, almost free from corruption.

Mesia is slowly achieving that... but with all these danget poloticians... macam susah nak confirm we are getting 100% halaal products... even if ada JAKIM nye tanda (buleh superimpose n juai apa :P)


Tq for visiting my blog :D

Joey: Researches as you suggested is really a brilliant idea. I do hope some agency somewhere will proceed with such research.

Alfian: Alhamdulillah aku masih ujud at the other side of the world. Kau kat US of M, aku kat US of A. Sama je.

Halal certification is more just obtaining a sticker from a regulatory body. Its more about social obligation for the people and for the Almighty. Therefore, as you said kena la jujur dan ikhlas baru la dapat produk yg suci.

TQ for visiting too.
