Opening a meat distribution centre

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I intend opening a meat shop and distribution centre in a town some two hours from Cape Town insha Allah. My supplier is strictly halaal. As I will not slaughter any animals myself and will only pass on/sell to the public, do I need a halal certificate displayed in my meat shop or is a notice of the above procedure displayed in my shop adequate?


A: This notice is sufficient.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
