The First Restaurant in Russia Receives Halal Certificate from Roskachestvo

22 December 2023

The restaurant of Tatar cuisine, Zaman by Tubatay, located in Ufa, has become the first public catering enterprise to receive certification from the accredited halal certification body, Roskachestvo-Halal, as reported by the press service of Roskachestvo to TASS.


The mark of conformity, "Halal. Certified by Roskachestvo," serves as special marking confirming the quality of products and adherence to all halal requirements and standards. Numerous large restaurants in Russia have already applied to Roskachestvo-Halal for certification.


Certification of a catering company according to halal standards involves assessing dishes and ingredients for compliance, as well as scrutinizing the establishment's concept. This includes ensuring that there are no elements in the interior or design contrary to the ethics of Islam. Considerable attention is paid to the appearance of the staff and methods of service. Additionally, certified establishments are required to have a prayer room for both visitors and employees.


Halal standards also cover sanitary and hygienic conditions, compliance with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), and the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) concept. This comprehensive certification makes such products and services appealing to a broad range of consumers, not just Muslims, but also individuals of other faiths, as highlighted by the organization.
