This certificate is issued on the basis of EC Regulation No. 834/2007 and No. 889/2008. Organic means “not using artificial chemicals in the growing of plants and animals for food and other products”.

Organic Production Certificate

Depending on your country’s requirements, we can supply you with an Halal certificate for your shipment. It certifies that the goods & their production process comply with the rules and regulations of the Islamic Shariah. Halal means “permissible” or “lawful” (the antonym to halal is haram, which means unlawful/forbidden).

Depending on your country’s requirements, we can supply you with a Kosher certificate for your shipment. The term Kosher is an anglicized form of the Hebrew word, “kasher”, which means "fit" or “allowed to be eaten”.
