The National Independent Halaal Trust (NIHT) was formed by concerned Ulama, Muslim Traders and Consumers. The prime objective was to ensure that the Muslim Consumer receives a guaranteed Halaal end product. Due to the changing market forces in the Halaal Food Industry and the usage of various natural and synthetic flavours, emulsifiers and mixtures it has become imperative that Muslim take cognisance of what they consume.
To this effect the NIHT has through the grace of the Almighty managed to make great strides, not only does the NIHT involve itself with the certifying of meat products but also various other products from spices to medicinal products.
Some of the market leaders that the NIHT certify includes Karan Beef, Kellogg�s, Nando�s, Ceres, Bakers, Dairy Connection, Chubby Chick, Appletiser, Fontana Roastery, Albany Bakeries, Galito�s as well as some Woolworth�s products.
