In June 2010, the production subdivision of OMEGA Group received certification for the conformity of production technology and used raw materials with the Halal requirements. This confirms that all the necessary conditions are provided for manufacturing of products in compliance with the norms of Islam, established by the rules of production and sale of Halal products and services.
The production process in compliance with Halal standards was implemented due to strict selection of suppliers of raw components and control of incoming raw materials, with regard to the compliance of the products with Halal requirements, the creation of additional technological processes and production instructions, as well as the introduction of the institution of an authorized person for the control of manufacturing of products according to the Islam requirements. The implementation of all these measures enables to ensure that all OMEGA products marked as Halal comply with all the norms of Islam.
