Sunday, June 08, 2014 – Lahore—All the top ten exporting countries of the Halal products are non-Muslim states.
Mufti Ahsan Zafar, country representative of South Africa National Halal Authority (SANHA) said talking to media here on Saturday.
He said that Halaal food is the safest food for consumption and even the non-Muslims have recognized it.
He said Pakistan has the capacity to become Kitchen of the World for Halal products as it has a huge potential to win a major share out of total $3 trillion Global Halal market. He said that there was a strong need to develop standards of our Halal products to boost our exports especially in the Middle East and Europe.
Demand for Halal food products is increasing rapidly with the escalating population growth rate and socio-economic conditions.
He said that the promotion of Halal exports would also open up new economic opportunities and employment for the youth and traders.
Producers outside the Muslim world, from Brazil to the US and Australia, are performing well into the Halal market and doing a roaring business despite the fact that the concept of halaal entirely belongs to Muslims.
