Philosophy / purpose

Halal food is not only for Muslims because it is a good and healthy meal for human beings in general. Nowadays Halal is highly demanded in Japan.
Our corporation gives advices and consultations related to Halal, such as consultation of Halal introduction, Halal certification, overseas certification acquisition, marketing and expansion of sales channels.
Overseas tourists whose purpose is to taste the delicious Japanese foods are the majority. However, we had heard many voices saying that they were not able to eat what they want to eat, only because it was not Halal.
In order to change such situation, JMA puts efforts into setting the certification cost to the minimum, and within the certification fee we will be your Halal coordinator and undertake general knowledge about Halal.
By all means, we hope that Halal Japanese products will be common not only in Japan but also all around the world.

Message from the Representative

Greetings (السلام عليكم). I am Saleem Sandha, belonging to Pakistani Memon community ( ) and the representative Director of JMA. About 32 years have passed since I came to Tokyo Japan.
When I first came to Japan, there was still no word like “Halal” here. There were no halal foods at all and I had a very hard time finding the food I could eat. It has been a long time since then, and the number of Muslims in Japan has increased, and there are many people who understands and Halal, Islam & Muslims. However, the countermeasures against Halal food and Halal are still not very remarkable, and it is true that we still have trouble to find it by ourselves. Until now, I have been doing a variety of activities, relying on the personal connections I have made in Japan. Each time, I wanted Japan to be much more comfortable country to live for Muslims, and so I decided to launch JMA corporation (Halal Promote & Issuance Halal Certificate Organization) in March 2017.
After I have acquainted with a lot of Japanese people and people from different countries, they started to try Halal food as a healthy diet, and they even accept it as a healthy food.
I believe that spreading Halal products is very beneficial for the Japanese: industrially, economically and for consumers.
It is hard to identify which ingredients are Halal or not in the products, especially for people from other countries facing Japanese language problem. By attaching the halal certification logo, Muslims will be able to purchase the products without having to worry, with peace of mind.
For the multicultural coexistence in Japan, I hope for all of you to lend us your power, so that we can work hard together and contribute to the promotion of Halal in Japan & start Halal Export chapter from Japan to the world.
