Conference venue kitchens certified halal

THE Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre’s (Mitec) kitchens have been certified halal by The Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim).

All its kitchens, including the main kitchen (comprising Chinese, Malay and Western kitchens), Butchery – Meat, Butchery – Seafood, Commissary Kitchen, Fruit & Vegetable Kitchen, Garde Manger Kitchen and Pastry & Bakery Kitchen, received their individual halal certificates from Jakim.

The halal certification authenticates Mitec’s audit by Jakim and gives assurance that food prepared in its kitchens complies with stringent Islamic requirements while adhering to quality, hygienic and sanitary conditions.

Jakim awarded the certification after an on-site inspection, detailed assessment and evaluation and recommendations on halal compliance which took approximately four months.

Mitec chief executive officer Gunther Beissel said as a world-class venue, Mitec had always been cognisant of the importance of ensuring the halal concept is not only applicable for preparation of food, but also for the process of managing the storage and handling of raw materials as well as procurement.

“We have set up a Halal Committee to oversee and maintain our halal standard and we are very proud to receive halal certification for all our kitchens within just over a year of operations.

“The certification will also boost the confidence of our clients and guests,” he said.
