Malaysian Halal Certification
All matters pertaining to Malaysian Halal Certification which was previously handled by the Halal Hub Division in JAKIM has been undertaken by HDC. The Halal Certification Process will still be the same and the Malaysian Halal Logo will be displayed and used on all HDC Halal Certificates.
