HALAL

IFANCA & IFANCC have Halal Assurance Process, ensuring that the Tasmiyah is said verbally by one person. It not only ensures that the animal to be slaughtered is treated humanely, but also provides assurance that the food will be healthier and tastier. We ensure that the animal is healthy and alive prior to slaughtering. The blood is completely drained out, making the meat Halal, healthy and more tender. All of our sources are Federally Inspected and HACCP registered. We have teams of Muslim blessers and slaughter men. Their role is to recite Tasmiyah at the time of slaughter. They are Muslim men of sound mind and highly trained in for Halal slaughtering procedure. The Halal meat is tracked by a traceable system in the processing facilities to ensure the proper usage of raw material for the Halal production.
