Halal certification organization since 1995
Insofar as a simple computer traceability is not sufficient to attest the Halal character of the products, the ARGML makes it a point of honor to certify only products perfectly in conformity with its Charter of Hygiene and Halal Quality. This implies in particular, during the production of meat or meat products, the permanent presence of one or more ritual inspectors from the ritual sacrifice to the final packaging of the product. A team of nearly 80 ritual controllers works on a daily basis.
Under the moral responsibility of the Great Mosque of Lyon
The ARGML is an association created in 1995 by the Great Mosque of Lyon, in order to allow Muslim consumers to have access to products in accordance with their religious ethics. Its headquarters are based in Lyon, within the walls of the Great Mosque.
Our work team
Quality engineers, administrators, ritual controllers, ritual sacrificers… a whole competent team implemented to guarantee your halal products.
Ritual control: a common responsibility
The ARGML is composed of a team of nearly 80 ritual controllers employed by the association, spread throughout France and abroad.
The ARGML takes full responsibility for ritual control towards God and Muslim consumers and therefore cannot delegate this task to independent companies.
The association considers that the Halal certification is a permanent concern, which requires a continuous supervision of the slaughterhouses, the sites of cutting of meat or manufacture of processed products containing meat in which it intervenes. With this in mind, our ritual inspectors are permanently assigned to the various production sites during Halal production sessions.
For their mission, our ritual controllers are our employees and therefore exercise their responsibility independently from the controlled company (they are not judge and jury).
All of our ritual inspectors are practicing Muslims who are fully aware of their responsibility to God and to Muslim consumers. They carry out their daily work in the greatest respect of Islamic principles.
A competent team
Real professionals to meet the needs of the service.
Because the job of ritual control is evolving and requires more and more skills, we train our ritual controllers throughout their career at the ARGML:
- Practical training given directly in the field in real situations
- Theoretical training covering several subjects: religious responsibilities induced by the job, control procedures, etc. These trainings are provided in particular within the framework of annual training seminars of the ARGML staff.
- Specific training: “hygiene and food safety”, “animal welfare” provided by the training organization DEFI.
Through this supervision and training, everything is done to guarantee the Muslim consumer the professionalism and rigor of the ARGML halal certification
A growing team
A growing team
Thanks to its partnerships, the ARGML is a structure that is constantly growing, both at the national and international levels. The ARGML works every day to offer a service and products with all the halal guarantees.
Constantly improving, all this would not be possible without the work of men and women who work every day to move the ARGML forward.
Therefore, we are constantly looking for new controllers to reinforce our team.
Ritual control is a Chahada*. Ready to take on the responsibility of Halal certification?
