Haji Baba Certification Clarification March 2019

  Back to News

Due to a number of members of the public enquiring, we would like to make members of the public aware that HMC no longer certifies any of the Haji Baba stores.

Though you may find products carrying the HMC markings within the display cabinets, HMC is no longer monitoring these counters and therefore cannot verify the supply chain and therefore cannot give any assurance.

Please log on to the HMC website for an up to date list of all the stores that we currently approve.

Should you require any further clarification please do not hesitate to contact a member of the HMC team.


HMC is the UK’s largest Halal certifying body, employing over 220 people. Last month alone, HMC staff spent 14,448 hours to ensure your food is genuinely Halal with 15,488 visits made to outlets nationwide. It is a registered charity and also a not for profit organisation. It is overseen by a voluntary body, the National Executive Committee that consists of mainly scholars who are the Trustees of the organisation. HMC has been set up to work in the favour of all Muslims and the consumer at large. HMC aims to regulate and at every point inspect Halal products from source to the consumer. HMC is committed to serving the Muslims and the wider community and it intends to provide peace of mind and security where required.
