Sheikh Ridhwan Yusuf
HSI is an independent, not-for-profit organisation based in the UK. It is led by an experienced team of Islamic scholars.
HSI was founded by Sheikh Ridwan Yusuf, a scholar who has worked for the last 20 years as an imam at a Bolton mosque and as a teacher at an Islamic school.
He established HSI in an effort to provide greater clarity and consistency about what the ‘halal’ stamp should really mean. Different agencies and communities adhere to different definitions of the word, and this can lead to confusion and disagreement. He therefore recognised a need to certify food producers according to a clear and published set of checks. It was his vision that an HSI certificate would give consumers a credible and completely transparent assessment of how a given producer operates.
