Why Halal Certify?
- The Halal industry experts believe the size of the total global Halal market including all types of Halal products, consumables and services to range from a minimum of US$1.2 trillion to US$2 trillion per annum (Global Halal Congress, 2010)
- According to the World Halal Forum 2009, Time Magazine (May, 2009) reported that the total size of global Halal food market is worth about US$ 632 billion a year. This figure would be higher still if the non-Muslim consumers market is included.
- Greater profit market share: no loss of non Muslim markets. The International Halal food trade has been estimated to be worth at least US$580 billion a year (Halal Journal, 2007).
- Certification assists domestic Halal food and consumable industries in the developments and promotion of Australia as an International Halal Hub, consequently exploiting a global Halal food market of about 1.8 billion people.
- Since Halal certification is not mandatory, a competitive advantage is gained over companies with no Halal certification.
- Halal certification imposes strict personal sanitation requirements in addition to manufacturing premise hygiene practices, complimentary to the HACCP program.
