In New York started the first vendor to sell halal Impossible Food.

The company worked closely with with auditors from the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America (IFANCA). In early October, they confirmed that all ingredients and production practices used to make Impossible Burger are completely halal-compliant according to Islamic dietary laws, as defined in the Koran and under Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (JAKIM) regulations.

Securing halal certification is a milestone for Impossible Foods. Their goal is to make delicious, plant-based meat available to everyone around the world, regardless of religion or culture heritage. Earlier this year, they received our kosher certification from the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, and last month, they received the highly regarded Safe Quality Food (SQF) certification as administered by the Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI).

The company is now partnering with famous street food vendor Royal Grill Halal in New York City to serve Impossible meat starting mid December.
