European Halal Development Agency (EHDA) was created due to the lack of a professional/recognisable regulation body for ‘Halal’ products in the UK. Halal assurance from farm to plate is absolutely essential for the Muslim Community. Our Halal auditors have undergone Halal training and are from a scientific background. This means that in addition Shariah knowledge, they also understand food and non-food products at a scientific level. We believe this is vital when determining if food and non-food and its ingredients are Halal or Haram. This is due to the vast number of complex processes used for modern food and non-food production.
The work of EHDA is supported by its Shariah board which has a broad representation from Islamic scholars in the UK, Europe and Internationally. In addition, EHDA liaises with other International certification bodies. All the key areas of EHDA‘s work are reviewed and approved by the Shariah board before implementation.
EHDA is working with leading partners across Europe to provide Halal Products. To assist in the development of a universally recognised Halal Standard, EHDA is working in close collaboration with other International bodies. We predominantly operate within the UK and Europe, although we also have clients further afield.
