TACURONG CITY, Philippines — KAPE DULANGAN, a native coffee produced by the Sultan Kudarat Coffee Ventures, Inc., received its “CERTIFICATE OF QUALITY HALAL ASSURANCE” from the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) based in Central Mindanao region.

DOST certified that SKCVI of Barangay Malegdeg in Senator Ninoy Aquino (SNA) town in Sultan Kudarat province has been assessed and found to be compliant with the Unified Global Halal Standards (OIC/SMIIC 1:2011) – General Guidelines on Halal Foods) and other statutory and regulatory requirements in the manufacture of the product “KAPE DULANGAN.”

It certifies also that “sufficient samples randomly selected representing the batch of each of the foregoing product were tested in DOST XII Halal Laboratory and found and quality assured to be Halal.

The certificate was signed by Regional Director Dr. Zenaida P. HR Laidan of the DOST in Central Mindanao region, popularly known as “Region 12.”
