PennWhite Audited By Halal Food Authority

The London based Halal Food Authority (HFA) visited PennWhite a few days ago to conduct an audit of our processes and facilities, the first stage in our application for halal certification of our food-grade products.

As well as reviewing our documented working practices, the HFA inspected our dedicated food-grade manufacturing area and storage facilities before visiting our Quality Control Station and laboratory. At the end of their audit they expressed approval of our food-grade processes, our plant and our segregation measures. They then invited us to proceed to the next stage of our application and submit our product specifications for halal certification.

We are now collecting and collating the required supporting documents for each of our food-grade foam control agents, lubricants and release agents. We expect to submit these early next year and hope to receive HFA certification soon after.
