What is ahc

The American Halal Council (AHC) is a 501C-3 nonprofit organization with EIN number 32-0617128. It was established in January 2020 and located in the U.S. Capital. AHC plays an important role of fostering and protecting a transparent halal lifestyle in the U.S. It was created by a group of individuals who recognize the need for educating halal consumers about the halal process.

We also understand the importance for advocacy to advance the representation of halal in the government and private space. In addition, there is a critical need for data on the halal market through conducting a professional halal market research.
