involved in research, training and management in the halal food
industry, is publishing ‘Understanding the Halal Food Supply Chain’

The food supply chain is changing from a local business to a global
venture due to rapid developments in food technology, food
transportation and food trade. Halal food emerged as a serious
international business opportunity due to an increase in demand by
almost 2 billion Muslim consumers.

‘Understanding the Halal Food Supply Chain’ discusses issues pertaining
to halal food in the context of the modern food industry and commerce.
The book covers all stages from farm to fork and presents issues
relevant to the halal food supply chain using an innovative and
accessible approach. It also discusses the necessity of integrated
approaches and frameworks to develop a global halal food supply chain.

This book is a useful starting point for research scientists, food
technologists, religious scholars, and consumers. It is also aimed at
food industry entrepreneurs wanting to develop niche halal food
products and services.

Dr Lodhi’s extensive work experience in food research, science &
technology, within industry and academic environments provided an
insight to the major issues faced by the global halal food supply
chain. His personal experience of living both in Muslim and secular
countries contributed to a broader view of the challenges faced by
halal food consumers.
