Assalaamu alaikum,

In light of the recent case against Senator Robert Menendez, there has never been a greater need for integrity and transparency in matters of halal certification. When scandals like these arise, it is customers who suffer the effects, whether they be higher prices or increased confusion and doubt about the legitimacy of a halal claim. As a halal-certifying body, IFANCA has a responsibility to uphold high standards of certification for our consumers. It is a responsibility we do not take lightly.

At IFANCA, we pride ourselves on maintaining the highest levels of transparency and trust. For over forty years, our team has been comprised of highly capable, impartial religious and food science experts who have been thoroughly trained to uphold our high standards of certification. Doing right by the consumer is at our core, and our organization holds service, adaptability, and integrity in the highest regard.

In addition to making halal accessible to all, we want to remove the doubt for consumers. The presence of the Crescent-M service mark on a food label means that the product in question is in accordance with the highest standards of halal conformity. When IFANCA certifies a product as halal, you can rest assured that the product is halal without a doubt.

Our organization was founded by halal consumers for halal consumers, and we will continue working to make halal accessible for all. Thank you for putting your continued trust in us.


Muhammad Munir Chaudry, president
