All Ceylon Canteen Owners Association has decided to refrain from selling any products with the ‘Halaal’ logo with effect from April 01.

The association’s national organizer Asela Sampath stated that canteen owners faced various difficulties in recent times due to the Halaal certificate.

He stated that a majority of Sinhalese and Tamil customers rejected the products with Halaal certificate resulting in a drop in revenue of canteens.

All Ceylon Canteen Owners Association states that although canteen owners spend large sums on their canteens the income they generate has drastically reduced. 

The following airline not only belongs to Muslim  majority country. All of the served food are suppose to  halal. It is written in the menu distributed to all passenger. For flights departing from all continent , all food are prepared by Airline`s own catering or Contracting company, where they have been certified by HALAL AUTHORITIES.

Many of these agencies have different approaches to certification and here, you can browse agencies worldwide and see how they influence the industry through acceptance of their standards. With halal authorities, the halal chain is complete - outlining the process from authority to manufacturer to product to consumer.
