Gadstrup, Denmark, April 20, 2006 – Fortitech Europe’s new state-of-the-art premix manufacturing and testing facility in Denmark is now certified Halal-compliant by the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America (IFANCA). To earn the certification, Fortitech Europe’s manufacturing facility and laboratory had to successfully meet strict Islamic guidelines dealing with hygiene, dietary regulation, raw material processing and premix packaging.
“Meeting the rigorous Halal requirements is an excellent move for Fortitech’s growing business initiatives in our market,” says Peter Sørensen, managing director of Fortitech Europe ApS. “With more than 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide, we see Halal as a form of guarantee that boosts our customers’ trust and confidence in our nutrient premixes.”
