Press review of the event
Halal certification in Italy has existed since the 1980s; it started out as a local operation linked to individual Islamic centres or imams that issued a declaration of conformity based on what they had learnt in their countries of origin.
Halal Italia was established in 2009 to ensure Italian companies could rely on religious certification of an internationally recognised standard.
The Milan Chamber of Commerce’s special agency for International Activities - PROMOS - launched an initial project, which was relaunched in 2010 by four Italian ministries (Foreign Affairs, Economic Development, Health, and Agriculture, Food and Forestry Policies) in the presence of the ambassadors of OIC countries.
A good practice to the benefit of the entire Islamic community and all consumers in the name of dialogue and cooperation with other organisations working seriously in Italy and abroad.
In the Islamic world, work and trade have always been a vehicle for knowledge and interaction between nations with different cultures and religions.
Halal certification is a tool to bring different worlds closer together and create interconnections between people, societies and economic systems for a globalisation including various identities.
