Halal Matters

Gardenia KL’s production plants and products have received Halal certification from Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (“JAKIM”), a federal government agency that administers Halal certification in Malaysia, and are included in Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor’s (JAIS) whitelist, a list which recognises companies that are committed to the requirements of Halal certification in Malaysia. Regular factory inspections are conducted by JAIS and other authorities to ensure the overall operations comply with strict guidelines. In 1994, Gardenia KL formed a dedicated Internal Halal Committee to scrutinize every aspect of Halal regulations to ensure that all requirements are stringently adhered to. As an added measure, Gardenia KL appointed an Independent Syariah Advisor as our point of reference on all Syariah-related matters.
