Halal & Tayyab
What is Halal?
Halal is an Arabic word that means “permissible.” In terms of how this applies to food, it means food that is permissible according to Islamic Rites.
What is Tayyab?
Tayyab means purity. Our baby food is tayyab because our dishes contain only natural ingredients and the intrinsic make-up of our food does not change during preparation.
At all times, our suppliers hold the following certifications:
- BRC Grade A (including food safety, manufacturing, storage, hygiene).
- Our meat is sourced only from our partner farms in Great Britain, who are all halal certified.
- We work with independent food technologists to ensure that our food is safe and that our exceptionally high manufacturing standards are followed.
- Our dishes also comply with the UK government’s Food Weaning Directives for infants.
For a meat to be certified "halal", it must not contain pork and must be slaughtered (zabihah) according to the following guidelines:
A prayer which includes Allah's name must be pronounced during slaughter.
The animal must be respected and killed humanely.
The animal must be hung upside down afterwards so that there is no blood.
These steps must be accomplished by a follower of the Muslim faith.
The animal must have been fed a natural diet that did not contain animal by-products.
