The rights and freedoms contained in the Spanish Constitution of 1978 include those relating to religious beliefs. In Spain, there are Muslim and Jewish communities with which the State has signed agreements to ensure they can observe their religious practices. These include dietary customs, which in both cases involve a series of rules that must be followed in order for the Faithful to be able to consume certain foods. Spanish law grants the relevant certifications to the governing bodies of both religious communities, Halal in the case of Muslims and Kosher for Jews.

With regard to food, the State acknowledges the Federation as the body that recognizes and certifies that Kosher products are fit for consumption by the Jewish community.
