RIYADH — The Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) is planning to obligate Halal certification over local and imported food products.

SFDA has clarified that its intention to obligate the halal certificate on food products includes products containing meat and poultry and all similar products.

Any food product, whether raw or included in a component of any other food product that contains gelatin, collagen, animal rennet, animal fats and oils, will be required to issue halal certificate, the authority indicated.

The authority added that even food products that bear a halal logo, sign or word will be required to have a halal certificate.

SFDA has suggested that the implementation of the obligation to have a halal certificate on food products should enter into force next July.
