JAKARTADAILY.ID – Head of the Halal Product Assurance Organizing Agency (BPJPH) of the Ministry of Religion M. Aqil Irham said that Mixue's ice cream and tea outlets do not have halal certificates yet.
So, Aqil requested Mixue not to put a halal logo on their outlet. According to Aqil, the Indonesian Halal logo and label could only be placed on products that have halal certificates.
“A new halal logo and label can be installed if a product is halal certified. Currently, Mixue does not have a halal certificate, so don't put the Indonesian Halal logo in its outlets," said Aqil Irham, Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

This confirmation was conveyed by Aqil in response to a complaint about a Mixue outlet with the Indonesian Halal logo. Even though it is known that outlets selling ice cream and tea products are not yet halal certified.
Aqil said, based on data from the Halal Information System (SiHalal), Mixue applied to register for halal certification on November 13, 2022.
"Currently the process has entered the audit stage by the Halal Inspection Agency (LPH) LPPOM MUI (Indonesian Council of Ulama)," said Aqil Irham.

"Halal certificates will be issued by BPJPH after there is a Halal Decree from the MUI Fatwa Commission," said Aqil.
"Before there was a Halal Certificate, we asked Mixue not to prioritize the Halal logo on its outlets," he added.
