SAFC: introduces Halal certified flavours

St. Louis / MO. (safc) SAFC Supply Solutions, a SAFC focus area and member of the Sigma-Aldrich Group, has announced that 350 food-grade products have been Halal certified and are now available within its extensive Flavors + Fragrances (F+F) aroma chemicals product line.

The Halal certification follows a successful American Institute of Baking (AIB) cGMP facilities audit in June 2007, which resulted in food-grade certification for these products. SAFC Supply Solutions worked closely with The Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America to ensure that the specified products were in complete compliance with Halal standards. In addition, SAFC plans to add a large number of Halal-certified products to its F+F offering by year-end.
