Controlling HALAL Food in Abu Dhabi Emirate
  • Food available at any point of time in Abu Dhabi Emirate is either produced locally {in Abu Dhabi Emirate or in another Emirate of UAE} , imported through the different control check points of Abu Dhabi Emirate or is in transit move to another country.
  • Any food containing additives of animal origin (e.g. gelatin, enzymes…..etc )should have Halal certificate before it is permitted into Abu Dhabi.

Controlling HALAL Food in Abu Dhabi Emirate
  • Food produced locally {in Abu Dhabi or in other Emirates} is usually produced following the Islamic rules and regulations that are set by GSM and other local authorities.

Controlling HALAL Food in Abu Dhabi Emirate
  • Meat origin, type and status should be identifiable by Abu Dhabi inspectors during the routine inspection .
  • Any meat bearing no stamp is condemned, referred to courts (fine, closure or revocation of license).

Controlling HALAL Food in Abu Dhabi Emirate
  • Imported food (carcass and meat cuts), Halal certificate showing that the animals or birds:
        • Are of species permitted for Muslims as source of meat.
        • Slaughtered in a plant (approved list) that only slaughters species permitted for Muslim food.
        • Slaughtered under the supervision of an approved Islamic association.

  • The Certificate should also show:
        • Exporter name, dates, amounts of meat, status of the products (fresh, frozen, vacuumed ).
        • Amount and type of meat stated in the certificate should exactly match the consignment.
        • Date of issuance of the certificate (testified by UAE embassy or of other GCC country or Arab country in case there is no UAE embassy in that particular country).
slide22

Laboratory role in Halal food verification.

Importance of having laboratory tests for Halal food Chemical and Biochemical techniques.

Currently ADFCA tests for alcohol and pork and in process of developing molecular techniques to detect non-halal animal species

We face no HALAL food problems for all food produced locally.

slide23

Reported cases of Non Compliance

Difference in slaughtering dates and amounts between that stated in the HALAL certificate and that in the carcass tag or packing list .

Arrival of a consignment from a non approved abattoir or from an abattoir that is temporary not permitted to export to UAE due to any reason.

slide24

Reported cases of Non Compliance

Arrival of meat with different status (fresh, frozen or vacuumed ) from that approved (by the GSM) for a particular abattoir.

Health certificate number is not stated (in HALAL certificate) , different or unidentifiable

slide25

Reported cases of Non Compliance

Information required is not complete .

Providing copies of certificates rather than the original ones.

HALAL certificate not accompanying the consignment.

ADFCA usually rejects any consignment that arrives separately from its HALAL certificate.

slide26

Reported cases of Non Compliance

Correction and re - correction of information and dates usually complicate situation and never solve problems. Trust is usually jeopardized when correction and re correction is so easy.

Our experience proved beyond doubt that some companies are ready to produce endless number of certificates trying to correct a situation that requires rejection due to valid HALAL reason.

slide27

Some observations in

  • Abu Dhabi Abattoirs
  • Islamic methods of slaughtering (Halal slaughtering) is quite consistent with GHPs and welfare aspects (facilitate efficient bleeding, ease skinning, watering of animals prior to slaughtering dilute of gut and minimize contamination) .
  • Cutting of spinal cord is prohibited .
  • Poultry slaughtering strictly follows Islamic rules and regulations.
problems need to be addressed
Problems Need to be Addressed:
  • Products containing meat or additives of animal origin produced in a country , shipped to another , re-labeled and exported to UAE.
  • Products of Islamic countries but contain additives or ingredients of animal origin from another country
slide29

Problems Need to be Addressed:

How far should we go tracing

additives of animal origins ????

A Big Challenging Question:
