Lose the fat, not the flavour!
Thirty Olimp Sport Nutrition products have been Halal-certified. This confirms that the products are produced, packaged and stored in accordance with Islamic requirements.
The Halal system is a standard of dietary law for all followers of Islam. According to the system, products must not contain alcohol or other intoxicating drinks, or raw materials such as animal blood or pork.
Obtaining the Halal certification was very important for us in terms of growth in export markets. It is necessary in order to start selling in certain markets, such as Egypt and Pakistan. In many countries, certification is not required, but it provides great added value for consumers.
Sebastian Bizoń, Export Director
Results of the audit
Obtaining the Halal certificate was preceded by long weeks of formalities culminating in an audit conducted at the company, when the production lines, among other things, were inspected.
The products submitted for certification met all the requirements. However, the verification process involved collecting and cataloguing nearly two hundred certificates from raw material suppliers, and preparation for the audit took several months.

The Halal certification is granted for one year. The company is already working to obtain certification for further products.
