Islamic Council of Norway certifies several slaughterhouses

Islamic Council of Norway certifies several slaughterhouses

Islamic Council of Norway (IRN) has re-emerged as a control body for halal meat after stopping coordination with Nortura in 2017, the newspaper Vårt Land reports.

In 2017, Nortura chose to drop its “halal agreement” with the IRN due to a lack of trust in the organization. The agreement secured notable revenues for the IRN on an annual basis.

However, the IRN has now entered into agreements with eight Norwegian meat producers, according to their website.

“Halal certification means that we have an objective approach to the processes, based on Islamic theology. This is mostly about cleanliness and animal welfare,” Yasir Ahmed, advisor to the Islamic Council of Norway (IRN), told Vårt Land.

Strict guidelines

According to the guidelines, the animal must be slaughtered by a Muslim, who turns the animal towards Mecca and gives a prayer during the act.

The IRN’s old partner, Nortura, told Vårt Land that they do not want to restore contact at this time. Nortura uses the Alfathi brand for its halal products.

“Nortura currently has no dialogue with the IRN about our documented processes at Alfathi,” Anette Ivsett, communications consultant at Nortura, stated.

The IRN is an umbrella organization for 33 Islamic denominations and organizations in Norway with a total of almost 65,000 members.
