|Halal-related agencies Intro||
Spain does not have a centralised national halal certifier.
The country has a well-developed halal regulatory infrastructure with three certifiers: Cordoba-based Spanish Institute of Halal (Instituto Halal), Valencia-based Halal Food Quality, and Malaga-based Halal Consulting. Together, they certify over 300 companies, primarily those in the food sector but also a handful of hotels and cosmetics firms.
Instituto Halal is Spain’s largest certification body, certifying 272 companies as of end-April 2016, and is recognized by the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America (IFANCA).
