A message making the rounds via social media saying Unilever margarine and other products are not Halaal is a Hoax. The MJC Halaal Trust assures the community that Flora Margarines are indeed Halaal and Halaal certified by MJC Halaal Trust.
For further peace of mind, please find below Unilever South Africa’ s response to this latest Hoax message:
“Re: Flora South Africa is Halaal Certified
An image is being circulated on social media claiming that Flora sold in South Africa contains pork-based gelatin and therefore not Halaal certified.
We want to reassure our consumers that Flora manufactured and sold in South Africa is Halaal certified by the Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) and does not contain any form of gelatin. The MJC emblem found on our packaging confirms that the Flora manufacturing process complies with the strict Halaal requirements.
All Margarine products manufactured by Unilever South Africa are also certified Halaal by the MJC.
Enjoy your Flora spread.
