The more important is the global mafia’s role in these sectors. These forces have arms and legs in every country. They just thinking how to win by exploiting people.

4-Obligation of certification
Today, in the industrialized countries, people are forced to eat ready-to-eat food that are subjected to complicated processes, instead of the classic foods and beverages directly obtained from nature.
Unfortunately, food industry is under the control and domination of the West, as in other industries. This control is prevailing on everything from factory establishment to manufacturing technology and raw materials.
Today, Islamic countries continue to work with formula and technology from the West, various biscuits, chocolates, confectionery, coca cola, and many others, and this factories are under the supervision of foreign experts.
The world today is directed to the global organization such as; “Food and Agriculture: FAO (United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization), Healthy: WHO (World Health Organization), Political: UN (United Nations), Security: NATO (North Atlantic Pact) Economy: IMF (International Monetary Fund), Judiciary: ICC (International Criminal Court), Environment, UNEP (World Environment Program) etc.
With the criteria and standards set by these institutions, people have been forced to commit a large part of their lives. Later, these institutions and standards will continue to increase, and they will continue to determine food, lifestyles and conditions for all people in the world. These globalization problems bring the important of cultural and belief systems.
For this, we have to be responsible for redesigning all production resources, all production processes and technologies. From the seed to the embryo, from the farm to the table, it is inevitable to control each step of the process with the halal mark. So, in order to solve these kind of challanges, GIMDES started their scervices.
