About Eat Halal

Eat Halal is a consumer-centric news portal, providing updates, trends and analysis within the spheres of Halal (permissible) and Tayyib (wholesome).

We have not moved away from our original motto “Helping Muslim Eat Halal, Pure and Wholesome”, only we have enhanced our vision. Back then Halal was a relatively new term for many in the West. And it was very hard finding authentic halal meat and poultry, let alone processed food items and ingredients. The current website is designed to promote halal as an ideal lifestyle choice for all mankind. We are also striving to facilitate the adoption of “Fitra” (disposition, natural) in every day life, as outlined in the Holy Qur’an and As Sunnah (path, practice).

We provide news and professional commentaries across the entire spectrum of Halal supply chain, including food and consumer goods, services, travel, tourism, lifestyle, Islamic Finance, banking and economy and all sectors that align themselves with safe and ethical universal values.

Historical Background

Historically when a few of the first concerned Muslim migrants started contacting food manufacturers to collect information on various food products. Once the information was collected, religious scholars were contacted and it was then decided if the products in question were Halal or Haram. This went on for a number of years untill the first Halal Certification bodies were formed. The objective was to find and validate the ingredients of food products according to the Islamic Jurisprudence, and to remind the general Muslim public about the importance of a halal diet.

Alhamdulillah, for over fourteen years, www.eat-halal.com has been helping Muslims eat halal and Tayyib. We have been offering up to date ingredients information in the “Ingredients” section. “Updates” are posted weekly year-round to keep visitors up-to-date on the Halal/Haram status of various food products. These updates are also sent out on an e-mailing list to over 3700 people. www.eat-halal.com also features monthly articles and polls, a forum, a Questions & Answers section, halal finder, and much more.

Our Focus

Our main focus is to actively contribute to the understanding of the Halal lifestyle and subsequent expansion of the Halal marketplace, pledging to serve both the demand and the supply components of the economy.

Focusing on the needs of business & lifestyle communities, Eat Halal is designed to bridge the gap between the industry and the consumer, by providing an effective communication platform that acts as a reference center for Halal knowledge base and its applicability.

By promoting the understanding and awareness of Halal and its inherent values and benefits, we have set out on a journey to facilitate the adoption of pure and wholesomeness in the entire sphere of man’s daily lives, to help and inspire him to achieve his fullest potential.
