BHJ targets halal market

Ingredients firm BHJ UK has received halal certification for its SCANPRO Beef 95 functional protein product.

Audits were carried out by the Islamic Centre Archen (Germany), making the texture-enhancing ingredient available for UK and global meat processors looking to specialise in halal beef-based products.
“With around 2.5 million Muslims in the UK and 1.6 billion halal consumers globally, this is a growing consumer market and certification is essential for gaining access,” said sales and marketing director Richard Parnell.
“Now, customers manufacturing beef based products for the halal food industry have full access to our SCANPRO Beef 95 protein and its added benefits. With increasing demand, it has never been a better time for us to ensure our ingredients are accessible to this market.”
