Ecolab, a cleaning and hygiene technology and services company, has been recognised by the Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology (ESMA) as one of the UAE-based companies to achieve its halal certification for locally-made cleaning and sanitizing products used by domestic food and beverage manufacturers.
