After months of passive movement , the halal industry seems to be stirring a little more vigorously now .
Conferences , exhibitions and webinars which were shelved during the past seven months because of the Covid-19 pandemic are beginning to announce confirmed dates .
On the domestic front , for instance , the Halal Development Corporation ( HDC ) has put the World Halal Conference 2020 back on the road again with the date finalised at Oct 6 .
And there was also the inaugural World Hospitality , Lifestyle and Entertainment Exhibition & Conference ( WHOLE 2020 ) in Penang .
Across the globe , such events are being resurrected . And that ’ s good news for the industry players .
The halal industry is one of the fastest-growing sectors , rushing to feed he demands of the ever-growing Muslim population which is now over 2 billion globally .
The global halal food trade alone is estimated at US $ 150 billion , proving the increasing awareness by Muslims worldwide . Halal food has proven to be an excellent business and lucrative market for domestic and international trade .
Unfortunately , with the soaring halal business come the shenanigans . These are the unscrupulous manufacturers and distributors who want to pick the cherry from the halal tree by falsely and maliciously claiming their products are halal and / or toyyib when they do not meet the stringent requirements . The conditions are very clear as :
• Sources of halal food and drinks
• Product processing , handling and distribution
• Product storage , display and servings
• Hygiene , sanitation and food safety
• Packaging and labelling
• Legal Requirements However , it is not unusual to find some products carry the halal label when they had not been certified as such by the relevant authorities .
Globally , Muslim authorities have gone on a limb to create awareness about halalness of food , services , cosmetics , etc . Muslims in Muslim-majority countries are more perceptive to the needs and demands of the halal industries .
There is also a growing demand from even non- Muslims for halal food especially because of the very strict requirements in its preparation and contents .
There is so much to gain going forward with the world taking stock of itself .
