Golden Churn is a Certified Halal Butter without doubt
29th April 2011,
Golden Churn Certified Halal Butter
It has been brought to my attention that there are false claims about our Golden Churn Certified Halal Butter brand originating from West Malaysia.
I can reassure all our valued customers and consumers that both Ballantyne factories in Australia & New Zealand are Certified Halal by Halal certification authorities for all our butter brands we produce and distribute.
It is important to understand that each delivery of butter out of Australia and New Zealand carries mandatory quality standards from relevant Government Food Authorities including Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ), the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service, (AQIS) and the New Zealand Food Safety Authority (NZFSA) in additional to strict Halal certification requirements. We confirm that our Golden Churn butter complies with the requirements of these authorities.
Ballantyne only use high quality milk to make cream that is churned into butter Ingredients are, Cows Milk, Milk solids (non fat), Moisture and 1.5-2% salt. No other additions, colours or preservatives are permitted. We are seeking legal advice to put an end to these false claims.
I wish to again reassure our loyal customers that these claims are false and our products are of the highest quality and Certified Halal.

Dari pengamatan peribadi, butter ini memang berkualiti tinggi dan menghasilkan kek dll masakan yang sedap (terutama kek lapis Sarawak). Ramai yang menggunakannya. Pihak JAKIM perlulah mengeluarkan berita yang selaras dengan Jabatan Agama Islam Johor dan menghebahkan berita ini di laman akhbar utama jika benar status produk ini meragukan sebagaimana terdapat dalam MEMO JAIJ tersebut.
Sehingga kini berita ini hanya berlegar di internet, meniti di antara blog-blog masakan dan lain-lain blog yang perihatin dalam soal agama. Ini tidak memadai. Pihak JAKIM dan jabatan terlibat PERLU MENGHEBAHKAN berita ini di laman akhbar utama sekiranya berita ini benar. Malah, sekiranya ia hanyalah kenyataan palsu atau belum sahih, rasanya perlu juga ada tindakan / kenyataan dari pihak berwajib untuk memberi kata putus dari segi STATUS SEBENAR butter tersebut kerana ramai UMAT ISLAM yang menggunakannya.
Amat mengecewakan jika kemelut status halal/haram sesuatu produk itu dibiarkan berlarutan sedangkan pada tin produk tersebut sedia tecatit logo HALAL yang diterima pakai/diluluskan oleh JAKIM. Sudah pasti ramai umat islam yang tidak peka dengan berita seperti ini akan terus menggunakannya.
Di sudut lain, jika kenyataan (haram) produk itu hanyalah manipulasi dan stategi kotor pemasaran dari pihak tertentu, tindakan segera juga perlu diambil bagi mengelakkan ada pihak yang teraniaya dan menjejaskan keselamatan perniagaan yang akan memberi impak kepada iklim pelaburan dalam negara untuk jangka masa panjang.

*The tale 0f you and I*
you gave walking sticks to others
yet you yourself were limping
you offered a lending hand
but it was you who needed help
you wore shields and armours
but it wasnt the outside that needed protection
you claimed others as foes and threats
yet you stabbed your very own heart
you blamed the time for being envious
was it not you who made the clock?
you walked the road with glitters and jewels
but back in home you slept on dirt
you conquered the lands and the oceans and skies
yet you moaned and screamed in dreams
you were the king of glorious men
but you were held captive of unseen strings
you claimed yourself a proud free man
yet you were chained to your old ventriloquist>
"By the power of Truth...."
