In a bid to widen the support base for the promotion of
the halal industry in Mindanao, halal industry stakeholders agreed to
establish a Mindanao Halal Forum. With these Halal Forums now popping up all over the world, using this forum to complement the efforts of the National
Technical Working Group on Halal by bringing in local
representatives from government, private sector and donor agencies seems to be the most beneficial way to develop Mindanao’s halal industry potential.

Effective strategies to capture $1.2T global halal market

FOOD producers and exporters were advised to
implement correct marketing strategies in order to capture a share of
the huge global halal trade estimated between $580 billion to $1.2
trillion at a recent National Halal Conference in the Philippines.
To effectively capture the halal markets, they were told they must understand the Muslim consumers’ religious
needs and behavior, food purchase and consumption pattern.


This shows once again the Halal consumer has the potential to influence the way this market moves. Halal Consumers need to know they have a say in the quality and quantity of Halal products on the shelf.

Brunei’s Road to Diversification

Blogs are key to keeping people up to speed with public opinion and Brunei is no different with its drive for Halal Branding and certification. We hope the question this woman on her blog is asking  about ‘Halal branding’ in Brunei will be answered or addressed at the International Halal Market Conference being held in Brunei on the 16-17 August.

Governments must be sure the vision they are planning in a conference room is also presented clearly to their citizens who they hope are going to benefit from it. This also applies to Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, etc. We hope that this woman and more like her come to the IHMC to assist Brunei’s vision for a new Halal economy to be realised.
