Tajikistan puts a ban on non-Halal meat imports

The Tajik State Service of Veterinary Control has imposed a ban on non-Halal (Haram) meat imports to the local market, as Tajik media reported. The measure was adopted on January 29 and it requires a new level of certification for foreign suppliers in order to be allowed to deliver meat products to Tajik consumers.

Only accredited foreign suppliers will be able to export meat products to Tajikistan. Before issuing such accreditation, Tajik experts will personally visit facilities abroad and check the quality and safety of the products, informs Azer News.

Also, the products must have the Halal label. At this moment, Tajikistan imported most of the meat products from India and Russia, a small market share being occupied by producers from Turkey and Kazakhstan.
