Rapid growth and interest in halal food has captured significant attention from the food industry. Halal means ‘that which is permitted in Islamic Law’ and it is normally associated with food products. It can at times be difficult to control and guarantee, especially by suppliers who are new to this process. This also applies to those not fully appreciating the halal market and those slow to adapt to scholarly consensus (Ijma) or changes in importing/production requirements in Muslim countries. The halal quality standard was originally designed to encompass product supply and manufacturing for processed food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and medical products. However, it has gradually been extended to cover services involved in halal product logistics.
