KUALA LUMPUR: Cadbury Malaysia welcomes the announcement by the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) declaring that the company’s products are halal. “We are extremely pleased to know that Jakim has once again stated categorically that Cadbury products made and sold in Malaysia meet their halal guidelines,” Cadbury Malaysia’s head of corporate and government affairs Raja Zalina Raja Safran said in a statement on Friday.
She said the company was glad to welcome its Muslim customers again after the confusion caused by the false claims that Cadbury chocolate products were non-halal. The Cadbury products we make and sell in Malaysia are, and have always been, halal. When the false claims about our chocolates emerged in May 2014, Jakim thoroughly tested our products and production processes and confirmed our stringent hygiene, quality and safety standards are in full compliance with its halal guidelines,” said Raja Zalina.
She added that Cadbury Malaysia had never compromised over the integrity on the halal status of its products and Malaysians could rely on the company to provide them with products they could trust and enjoy.
