EU – New Report on Top Five Vendors in the Halal Food Market

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent halal food market in Europe 2016-2020 report. This research report also lists nine other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to the report, the halal food market in Europe is highly fragmented and has numerous vendors, including international and regional players, in it. These include farms, processing businesses, food service companies, and supermarkets. Market vendors compete against each other on the basis of product differentiation, portfolio, and pricing.

“The distribution chain needs quality assurance in the process of wholesale halal meat procurement, storage, and distribution. Halal meat wholesalers offer competitive prices by cutting down on middlemen,” says Vijay Sarathi, a lead food analyst from Technavio.

The report also states that to survive in the highly competitive market, it is imperative for vendors to distinguish their products and service offerings through a clear and unique value proposition. Some of the leading vendors in the segment include, Tahir Foods, Isla Délice, Tariq Halal, Carrefour, and Casino.
