HALAL MONITORING AUTHORITY (HMA)
For many years individual Imams and Ulama received complaints from the Muslim community and in particular individuals from the Halal industry that many things within the industry were not being observed in accordance to the Shariah.
In March of 2004 the Jami’yyatul Ulama Canada (CCMT) therefore decided to appoint a team of members whose task was to observe and discover what is really going on within the industry. The team managed to inspect 13 poultry abattoirs, 4 meat abattoira, 7 further processing plants and numerous other manufacturing plants and retailers.
Throughout these inspections, which were documented, the team discovered many areas of concern in majority of the places that were visited and steps were taken to try and rectify the problems.
