A Matter of Trust
The BCMA head Office has been receiving calls from members regularly about the shopkeepers selling meat and poultry products with Halal Stickers on the package asking whether it is ok to buy such products.
The BCMA can only vouch for those stores and meat suppliers who have been certified by our Halal Management committee. We provide a unique certificate which the vendor(shopkeeper) must display openly in full view of customers. Each certificate has a issue date and expiry date for its validity.
We therefore advise the community members to ask to see the copy of the certificate, and in case of packaged products, the origin of the product. There are packaged products in the market with the Halal certificate from other provinces which we cannot verify. Please also bear in mind that The BCMA has no control over what the butchers and shopkeepers sell. It is your duty to verify whether it is halal or not before buying the product. Please always check by requesting The BCMA Halal certificate. Alhamdolillah we have many choices available in the market so choose carefully.
