Karachi, February 06, 2018 (PPI-OT):There is emerging segment of Halal Trade of 2.77 trillion but Unfortunately, More than 80% of the world Halal trade is done by non-Muslim countries, both in the West and East, who, by utilizing the Halal Brand to their economic benefit, have become the biggest exporters of Halal products. In the West, USA, Brazil, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and France are the biggest Halal suppliers.
In the East, Thailand is the biggest exporters of Halal certified products, Singapore and India are also the leading Halal products suppliers to the world. Owner and Consumer of Halal are Muslims but due to weak regulatory system of Halal certification Muslims countries are not getting good share from this trillions of Dollars trade globally.
There is very Good chance for Pakistan as originally we already as a Muslim country following halal food requirements and regulation but there is need to Develop or established Halal products standards and regularized the system of halal certification So our Halal products can be acceptable in Market, although we have good Halal food certification bodies but its need to be further improvement, by this we can get Sizeable share of market and can increase our exports in this sector and can earn more and more foreign exchange.
