Halal Industry Stakeholders Consider a Mindanao Halal Forum

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.

Time to launch a few Halal hotels and Halal tour packages.

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.

OIC: Malaysian FM Yatim adressed the 35th council of foreign ministers

With so much on the agenda at the 35th Session of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the OIC it does not look like Malaysia’s Foreign Minister was able to do much but mention the names of the Halal initiatives that Malaysia is trying to introduce to the OIC in his 15 minute address. Hopefully he was able to gather some support on the sidelines during the meetings. Seems these meetings are just to remind each other what they did not follow up on from the last meeting. Though with such a long list of very serious issues to be addressed during these sessions, adding the development of International Halal
Standards, the International Halal Integrity Alliance, and an International Zakat Organisation to the list might just be asking too much.  Perhaps these will need to be implemented by a different body.

Gulfood to expand to become Middle East’s largest trade exhibition in 2009

Gulfood expanding was inevitable, but adding the new Ingredients Middle East into the show was a good strategic move. Though Gulfood has never focused on Halal as a category in its own right at the show, many of the companies of course are certified Halal to enable them to export to the region. Having the ingredients on board during this huge event will assist manufacturers wanting to enter into the Halal food industry source their certified ingredients. One stop shop.
