Halal Logistics

The Muslim world has its own legal framework which regulates religious activities and practices under the legal protection of the Spanish Constitution. The Halal Food and Quality guarantee mark, endorsed by CIVU, a member of the Spanish Islamic Commission, was created to ensure compliance with these laws and to monitor and certify that approved foods, products and services comply with standards.

In order to understand the importance of Tiba having been given halal certification, it is important to understand the meaning of halal in the Muslim world.

WHAT IS HALAL

Halal

Halal means lawful, permitted, beneficial, healthy, promoting a better quality of life and avoiding risks to health.

  • Food should not contain elements which are forbidden under Islamic law, nor should it come into contact with other forbidden foods during preparation, transportation or storage. Animals which are either destined for direct consumption or for making manufactured products should be slaughtered and butchered according to Islamic precepts.
  • Pharmacy, perfumery, cosmetic, personal and industrial hygiene products, some of which should not contain forbidden substances, such as alcohol in some cases, or animal fat, especially pork fat.
  • Banking services should be free from the type of interest known as riba (usury) as this represents financial gains being made without any effort or work being involved.
  • Services are tailored to the Muslim culture in terms of restaurants, accommodation, sanitation, prayer rooms, rugs, orientation towards Mecca, etc.
  • Cities have hotels, restaurants, shops, tourist services, etc. that are consistent with Islamic law.

Haram

Haram refers to all things that are considered unlawful or that are forbidden by Islam as they are understood to be damaging, detrimental, abusive or harmful.

  • Meats and by-products from animals that have died, i.e. they have not been slaughtered.
  • Animal ingredients from stock that has not been slaughtered using halal methods.
  • Blood.
  • Pork, boar and their by-products.
  • Animals slaughtered in a name other than that of Allah.
  • Poultry and animals with tusks and/or claws.
  • Alcohol, poisonous or harmful substances and toxic plants and drinks.
  • Some additives.
  • Manufactured products exposed to cross contamination.
  • Riba bank interest.
  • Gambling.
  • Pornography.

Mashbouh

The term mashbooh is used when it is difficult or impossible to know whether certain goods and services are permitted, particularly where the origin of a product or ingredient is not known or, in the case of animals, when the method of slaughter cannot be determined.

Aspects to consider in halal logistics

  • HALAL ACCREDITED COMPANY CERTIFICATION

    The customer should become accredited as a certified halal company.

  • BATCH CERTIFICATION

    The products or services covered should carry the corresponding Halal Institute Certificate for the particular batch, product or service, whether they are sold nationally, in the EU or exported outside the EU.

  • TRANSPORT

    We are committed to working with approved carriers who are aware of the particular requirements and hygiene practices necessary in the handling of halal produce from the place of origin to its destination, such as the use of gloves under all circumstances, and the use of air bags and panels to separate goods in containers.

    The documentation (Shipping instructions, CMR, etc.) provided to the shipping line, airline or haulage company responsible for the transportation of the goods shall specify that the products are halal and shall include instructions for their correct handling.

  • WAREHOUSES

    instalaciones-friopuertoFriopuerto, is another company in the Romeu Group which has several state-of-the-art warehouses with cold stores for frozen and chilled products.
    These warehouses include a facility in Valencia, which is the only warehouse situated within port confines, and a facility in the Tanger-Med free zone, which has been in operation since 2016, and is the most technologically advanced refrigeration facility in Morocco.

    Through Friopuerto, TIBA can offer temperature-controlled product storage and handling services for import/export operations in state-of-the-art warehouses for both frozen and chilled products.

    In order to avoid cross contamination, we offer physical separation in our warehouses in areas specifically set aside for halal products.

  • CUSTOMS CLEARANCE

    Our customs team ensures in situ that halal produce is not contaminated and that gloves are always worn during customs inspections.

  • AGENTS IN THE COUNTRIES OF DESTINATION

    We have a network of agents in the countries of destination who are trained and qualified to handle halal goods.

  • INSURANCE

    The fact that the goods being transported are halal is also reflected in our goods transport insurance policies.

  • HALAL CERTIFICATION IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF OUR QUALITY SYSTEM

    This means, among other things, that we have a defined process of supplier approval which consists of:

    • Educating the supplier with regard to halal certification.
    • Ascertaining whether the supplier has an understanding of halal culture and characteristics.
    • Understanding how the supplier can ensure halal traceability.
    • If the supplier does not have the appropriate knowledge, we provide them with documentation containing information, recommendations and good practices for handling this type of product.

HALAL GUARANTEE

The halal lifestyle has transcended religious boundaries and is beginning to be seen as a way of life that is healthy, sustainable and good quality. The term halal does not only refer to food standards, it also relates to personal care, behaviour, a way of doing, dressing and speaking. Meat is not the only halal product. There are also halal cosmetics, luxury goods, Muslim friendly tourism, hotels, etc.

Many countries which are not necessarily Muslim, particularly in the Far East, are beginning to consume all types of halal products on a regular basis because they are generally subject to stricter controls and are considered to be more hygienic, healthy and natural.

LOGISTICS SOLUTIONS FOR THE HALAL INDUSTRY AND PRODUCTS

Perishable goods

The most imported and exported halal products are those destined for human consumption, particularly meat.

Our perishable goods division specialises in the transportation of products for human consumption. We apply all of our experience and knowledge of perishable goods logistics to the export and import of your halal food.

Cosmetics

In the Islamic religion, the standards applied to permitted foods are also applied to hygiene and beauty products such as creams, make-up, perfumes, etc., some of which should be free from forbidden substances, such as alcohol, in some cases, and from animal fat, especially pork fat or its by-products.

At TIBA, our Health Division, which specialises in pharmaceutical and medical logistics and in importing cosmetics, offers our customers its experience in this industry for importing halal personal care products.

Hotels

The growth in Islamic tourism, and the high purchasing power that comes with it, has caused some hotels to adapt its practices to offer specific services to this emerging group. Our experienced Hotel Division helps our clients to supply these hotels that have halal certification so they can adapt their facilities to offer their customers not only a menu that complies with Islamic precepts but also prayer rugs, prayer room furnishings, halal amenities and hygiene products.

Our Hotel Logistics Division applies the necessary procedures to ensure a 100% halal service.
