GMOs (or “genetically modified organisms”) are organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering, or GE. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacteria and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods. For consumers, it can be difficult to stay up-to-date on food ingredients that are at-risk of being genetically modified, as the list of at-risk agricultural ingredients is frequently changing. As part of the Non-GMO Project’s commitment to informed consumer choice, we work diligently to maintain an accurate list of risk ingredients. Agricultural products are segmented into two groups: (1) those that arehigh-risk of being GMO because they are currently in commercial production, and (2) those that have a monitored risk because suspected or known incidents of contamination have occurred and/or the crops have genetically modified relatives in commercial production with which cross-pollination (and consequently contamination) is possible.


Halal simply means permitted or lawful. So when we are talking about Halal foods it means any foods that are allowed to be eaten according to Islamic Sharia law. This means that for any food to be considered Halal it must comply with the religious ritual and observance of Sharia law. This means that food has been subjected to approved certification systems which guarantee to consumers that nothing in the food has any forbidden components. Halal certificates are issued, for a fee, by a certifying body.

Halal certificate is released following Audits in company which aim to verify the business processes conformity according to the principles of the HALAL Management System.

We are part of the companies that respect HIA Halal Quality System, that is HQS (Halal Quality System), in line with Halal International standards and OIC Islamic Countries.
