Delaware - The South African National Halaal Authority (Sanha) on Monday distanced itself from a US chicken producer, who claimed over the weekend that all its exported chicken to SA is halaal.

Sanha said in a strongly worded statement that it does not grant halaal certification to any poultry outside South Africa’s borders as “we are unable to exercise stringent monitoring and audit control through having our own dedicated onsite auditors based at the plants, as we do locally”.

The reaction follows after one of the top US poultry producers claimed to Fin24 over the weekend that its chicken portions destined for South Africa are halaal.
