other examples of such differences. Our policy
for such kind of disagreement is, we take
the strictest one possible, so every muslim
has the same halal-assurance for our products.

and Chubu-area. Most of our costumers

1999, our halal products are consumed
muslims from Kagoshima to Hokkaido.
Our business model
By end of 2000 we have costumers from
(southeren part of Okinawa) to Sapporo.
Though our products have yet no official
certification for Halal-ness from Japanese
Authority, we are planning to aproach Islamic
Centre for such kind of certification (for
your information: There is no halal-inspection
authority in Japan to this date Dec 31, 2000).
However, MSA-Fukuoka(KUMSA), MSA-Kagoshima,
MSA-Oita etc have recognized our product
halal, as those organizations are continously
purchasing our products for local consumption.
And ultimately, if you wish, you are invited
to verify our claims on the halal-ness of
our products by coming directly to the butcher
house on the slaughtering day and observing
our slaughtering/processing line.
