What is halal
“ O YOU WHO BELIEVE! EAT OF THE GOOD THINGS THAT WE HAVE PROVIDED FOR YOU AND BE GRATEFUL TO ALLAH, IF IT IS HIM THAT YOU WORSHIP “
– AL QURAN AL KAREEM, 2 :172
Halal is defined as lawful and permitted, meaning compliance with the Islamic law. This law is based on teachings of the Holy Koran, consisting of principles and rules which guide us and are essential in our lives. For instance, all foods are allowed for consumption, except for those derived from animals such as pigs, dogs, predators as well as containing alcohol and other harmful ingredients. Besides meat, Halal food and beverages imply baked goods, dairy products, soft drinks, bottled water and tea bags among others.
In the dynamic world we live in, Halal products have gained global prominence. Therefore, a promising innovative market for Halal products and services has emerged. This means that the dominant Halal food and beverages sector has recently expanded to the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and personal-care sector among others. The main drivers are an increasing consumer awareness and an entrepreneurial eye for the development and realization of new market opportunities.
The promising business opportunities are reflected in Halal conferences and trade shows taking place around the globe, and both emerging start-ups as well as mainstream brands in manufacturing, retail and restaurant chains bringing new offerings to the market. Moreover, this evolution has not only been driven by mainstream Muslim-majority countries, but also by the multicultural populations of South-East Asia and the Muslim diasporas of Europe as well as that of North and South America.
From a business perspective, Halal integrity is accomplished through compliance with the Islamic law across the complete supply chain as well as encouraging governments and industries to closely cooperate and commit to the development of the Halal market for the benefit of all.
The regulatory framework used is called Halal Certification. This implies that products are assessed by an appropriate Islamic religious authority on meeting Islamic requirements relating to specific products. This type of certification has become an essential and lucrative element of international trade, especially for countries that export products to the Muslim world, such as Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, the United States and several European nations.
