Business Opportunities in Halal Food

The global market for Halal food is potentially worth $150 billion a year with 1.8 billion Muslim Consumers in 112 countries. Some 400-600 million Muslims live as minorities in different nations of the globe and 35 million in Europe. In the UK, the Muslim population is young, the birth rate is high and educational levels are rising. Demography in the Muslim population and greater interest from the wider population makes Halal food an excellent business opportunity for new product development (NPD), different business models and widening the manufacturing and distribution of Halal products to what is a captive and growing market. Cultural diversity has lead to strict Halal standards. The multi-cultural complexion of Southeast Asia has stimulated the development of the world’s most advanced Halal Standards and certification agencies.
