Leiber GmbH, a German manufacturer of yeast specialty products, announced the company's refined brewer's yeast products are now Halal-certified. 

The family-run company relies on monitoring, certifying and monitoring every process when manufacturing its special brewer's yeast products, starting with production, transport and ultimately, further processing. Halal certification by the Halal Food Council of Europe was dependent upon a comprehensive audit, which included certification of production as well as all raw materials used.

"With this important milestone, we are looking forward to meeting the international requirements and the growing trend in safe and high quality animal nutrition products, and are making one further step in this growth market with th successful Halal certification," said Nikolaus Jungbluth, head of Animal Nutrition.
