The Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand Inc. (FIANZ), the national Muslim organisation, wish to confirm that all meat exports from New Zealand accompanied with a Halal Certificate issued by the Federation, to any part of the world, are guaranteed Halal.
The Federation is the sole certifier for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and the State of Kuwait. Large quantities of meat certified Halal by the Federation are also exported to other countries in the Middle East, the United Kingdom, Europe, North America, South Africa and Asia.
The Federation's Halal Committee (comprising the Religious Advisory Board, Meat Scientists, Food Technologists and the Secretariat) ensure that meat plants of New Zealand, operating under the supervision of the Federation, always maintain a high degree of Halal integrity. Halal Accreditation Certificates (for the premises) are issued to such meat plants by the Federation only after a thorough and rigorous Halal auditing process which includes a regime of ongoing supervision and inspection.   Added on July 25, 2008
