Witnessing Duopharma’s continuous commitment in intensifying its Halal integrity and solidifying its position as a market leader in the Halal pharmaceutical sector

Bangi, Selangor – CCM Duopharma Biotech Berhad’s (Duopharma) effort in intensifying its Halal integrity in the Halal pharmaceutical sector was further endorsed via the visit of Datuk Dr. Zulkifli Bin Mohamad Al-Bakri, Mufti of the Federal Territory, to its manufacturing plant located in Bangi recently.

Datuk Dr. Zulkifli, who spent more than three hours touring the plant, was briefed on the manufacturing processes by the senior management of Duopharma led by Leonard Ariff Abdul Shatar, Duopharma’s Group Managing Director.

“Duopharma is committed in our continuous efforts to solidify our position as the market leader in the Halal pharmaceutical sector. The plant tour was seen as a stepping stone towards a serious commitment to remain as a strong proponent of the Halal concept,” said Leonard Ariff.

Duopharma was the first pharmaceutical company to be presented with the distinguished ‘Halal Malaysia’ certification for prescriptive medicine issued by JAKIM based on the world’s first Halal pharmaceutical standard, MS2424:2012.

The company is currently the largest Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) – Pharmaceutical certified manufacturer in Malaysia with facilities in Bangi, Klang and Glenmarie. This standard ensures all production activities in the plant are in line with the standards established by Malaysia’s Health Ministry’s GMP and international standards.

“Duopharma has always been an avid supporter of the Halal initiatives. Customers are now becoming more discerning and aware of what they put into their bodies. This initiative promises the provision of safe, high-quality and hygienic pharmaceutical products to customers, which in turn enhances their quality of life.

“Additionally, it will be a driving force behind the intensification of Duopharma’s Halal integrity to become the Halal Supplier of Choice worldwide,” Leonard Ariff added.

Datuk Dr. Zulkifli commended Duopharma for having a clean setup and meeting the Halal requirements in its manufacturing processes.

“I am impressed with the quality and efficiency of the manufacturing operations at Duopharma’s plant and would like to thank the Company for providing behind-the-scenes insight into its manufacturing system.

“I also would like to congratulate Duopharma for its commitment to providing customers with products that are of high standard and quality while meeting the regulations and requirements in Halal certification,” said Datuk Dr. Zulkifli.
