This e-mail is concerning Ceres juices and whether these juices deemed halaal by your esteemed organization?

Additionally, aside from the investigation of the ingredients, processes, etc to determine the halaal status of the juices, can the name of the juices affect their halaal status? The name of the juices, the company and indeed the town is of a Roman deity, “Ceres”. Indeed, on the website of the company it is clearly stated that its earlier inhabitants “named the valley after the ancient Roman Goddess of Fruitfulness”. At one point, this used to be stated on the juice cartons as well. However, this no longer seems to be the case.


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykumwa-rahmatullāhwa-barakātuh.

If the ingredients and processes used to manufacture the juice is of a halāl nature then the mere name of the company or the town in which it is produced will not affect its permissibility.


And Allah knows best
