|Halal-related agencies Intro|
Germany does not have a national-level centralised halal certification body.
Prominent halal certifiers:
The European Institute of Halal Certification (EHZ) was established by the Council of Islamic Scholars in 2000 and supported by the Islamic Council for the Federal Republic of Germany and the Alliance of the Islamic Communities in Northern Germany. It is a member of the International Halal Integrity Alliance and World Halal Food Council.
Companies certified by the EHZ include Alpavit, Bahlmann, and Brüninghoff. The organization’s website lists 21 halal-certified companies, as of this writing.
The Islamic Centre Aachen was founded in 1974 and is recognized by the World Halal Council, European Islamic Forum, World Health Organization, and Central Council of Muslims in Germany. The organization offers certificates for single products and companies and uses a modern analysis system by an independent laboratory to control certified products. It has certified products from international players including Nestlé, Bayer AG, Muller, and Dr.Oetker. The organization’s website lists 46 companies as references for certified halal products, as of this writing.
