South Africa Halal Model Assessment: During a three week long advocacy training, Halal Advocates gained valuable skills and insights from organizational and strategy sessions, which were conducted with international Halal experts from the South African National Halal Authority (SANHA), and the Muslim Jurists Council (MJC), the two oldest and most respected Halal certifying bodies in South Africa. As South Africa is probably the country with the most developed and advanced Halal production and certification infrastructure in the world, this was an invaluable experience, which gave Halal Advocates precious insights that few others in America posses. Along with strategy and organizational training, Halal Advocates benefited from hands on and practical methods of inspection, visiting numerous slaughterhouses, industrial food processors and distribution centers.
UK Halal Model Assessment: While on this two week long advocacy visit, Halal Advocacy got to interface with the Halal Monitoring Committee (HMC) of the United Kingdom.

We also visited numerous industrial food processors and slaughterhouses for research purposes. The visit to the UK also allowed Halal Advocates to interface with a number of renowned scholars including Mufti Abdur Rahman ibn Yusuf, Mufti Muhammad ibn Adam al-Kawthari, and many others, to find sunnah-based solutions to modern industrial-scale Halal issues.
