Made in Italy: Halal Italia

Posted on: under General

A new initiative in Italy will allow for food, cosmetics and pharmeceutical products made in Italy to be certified as "halal," meaning that their production is compliant with the laws of the Koran. The move supports a "Halal Italia" initiative by CO.RE.IS Italiana (Comunita Religiosa Islamica), a group that has participated in a trial program with the Milan Chamber of Commerce.

The "halal" certification is intended to advance the sale of Made in Italy products in Islamic nations and further the bond between Italy and Muslim majority nations, according to a release by the Italian Embassy.
