2 ISLAM has the second largest number of followers in the world and ~1 in 5 of the world’s population are Muslims. Year 2000 CE Muslims 20% of world pop. Muslims – Annual Growth Rate: 2.9% - (Britannica) Year 2025 CE Muslims 33% of world pop.

MUSLIM POPULATION: ASIA 69.1% AFRICA: 27.4% EUROPE: 2.8% N. AMERICA: 0.5% OTHERS 0.2% Muslims form a single nation (ummah) by virtue of their belief and religion of Islam Halal-important and integral part of Islamic life. God given standard for Muslims to live by Halal logo - become a branding in advertising foods for Muslim consumption

“Eat and drink of that which God has provided and act not corruptly, making mischief in the world” (Al-Quran 2:60) “O mankind! Eat of what is lawful and good on earth and follow not the footsteps of the devil” (Al-Quran 2:168) “O you who believe! Forbid not the good things which God has made lawful for you and exceed not the limits. Surely God loves not those who exceed the limits. And eat of the lawful and good that has God given you, and keep your duty to God in whom you believe” (Al-Quran 5:87-88)

THE IMPORTANCE OF HALAL & HARAM FOR MUSLIMS (STATEMENTS OF THE PROPHET MOHAMMAD pbuh) Those who consume Halal, follow the tradition of the prophet and do not harm others will go to paradise. (Tirmizi) Many people put a lot of effort in worship of Allah and then spread their hands saying, “O Allah, please accept our supplication.” But if their eating is Haram, their drinking is Haram, their clothing is Haram, how would then their supplication be accepted? (Muslim and Tirmizi) I swear by Allah in whose hands is my life. When a eats a tiny piece of an item which is Haram, none of his deeds are accepted by Allah for forty days. When the flesh of the body is built from Haram then his body Only deserves the Hell Fire. (Muslim)

6 Excerpts from recent speeches by the Hon
Excerpts from recent speeches by the Hon. Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Abdullah Haji Ahmad Badawi on Halal Industry:

“The Government will continue to promote the transition to higher value added activities in three main economic sectors, the first being manufacturing; second, services; and third, agriculture. New sources of growth in these sectors will be identified and promoted to generate additional income and to develop new sources of economic wealth.”  Enhancing value added in manufacturing, services & agriculture  “To leverage on Malaysia’s advantages in the halal sector, particularly in terms of certification and logo recognition, the Plan will drive the sector’s growth in making Malaysia an international hub for halal products and services. The Halal Industry Development Board will be established to develop this industry in a holistic and orderly manner.”  Quotes from the Hon. Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Abdullah Haji Ahmad Badawi, 9th MP Speech:

8 THRUST 2: ENHANCING THE NATIONAL CAPACITY FOR KNOWLEDGE AND INNOVATION AND NURTURING CITIZENS WITH “FIRST CLASS MENTALITY”  “The most precious assets of a nation are its people. The development of human capital, the upgrading of the mentality and intellectual capacity of a nation is one of the biggest challenges under the Ninth Malaysia Plan. If we wish to become a knowledge-based economy, if we wish to be a developed country and maintain that developed status, the development of human capital must be a priority. In the context of globalisation, high quality human capital has become a necessity, not merely a luxury. ” Quotes from the Hon. Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Abdullah Haji Ahmad Badawi, 9th MP Speech:

“Given Malaysia’s potential to spearhead and further promote the global halal industry, the Halal Industry Development Corporation (HDC) will be established under the Prime Minister’s Department, with a launching grant of RM25 million. This Corporation will coordinate and ensure the integrated and comprehensive development of the Industry. It will also coordinate efforts to review standards, develop the local industry, promote Malaysian halal products and services in international markets, as well as support investments in the domestic halal sector. The Malaysian International Halal Showcase (MIHAS) and The World Halal Forum 2006, which received a tremendous response, will be an annual event.” A quote from the Hon. Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Abdullah Haji Ahmad Badawi, 2007 Budget Speech

“A sum of RM50 million is allocated to set up halal parks in Pasir Mas - Kelantan, Gambang - Pahang, Chendering - Terengganu and Padang Besar - Perlis. The SME Bank is also allocated a sum of RM20 million to finance entrepreneurs to develop these products” A quote from the Hon. Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Abdullah Haji Ahmad Badawi, 2007 Budget Speech

11 From our observation, it is apparent form the above aspirations spelled out by the Hon. Prime Minister with regards to Halal Industry for the 9th MP, and the role of HDC as outlined in the 2007 budget speech that: there is an absence or lack of emphasis on the importance of Human Capital Development related to Halal Industry in HDC’s role, – in particular, comprehensive halal training programme(s) – to produce competent halal personnel establishment of credible and dedicated centres with facilities set-up for research, testing and monitoring of halal products and accessories

12 Halal Industry Research Centre

To Majority of Muslims religious command on the ways of eating To Non-Muslims eating without pork or alcohol To Industries non-pork, non-alcohol products for Muslims that when labelled presented as such to the market shall provide economic gain According to the Dictionary meat slaughtered according to Muslim Laws

16 Halal Contrary to general perception, Halal is for everybody.
(It promotes the well-being of mankind, irrespective of religious and Geographical boundaries.) to Muslims, it is a prescription from God meant for their physical and spiritual well-being for non-Muslims it means safe, wholesome products for the general well-being for the industry, the production of Halal food is not only beneficial to Muslims, but also to non-Muslim food producers, by means of an increased market acceptance of their products. Approved items Hygienic Ethical behaviour Cleanliness & Efficiency ‘Wholesome’ & ‘Beneficial’ Halal

~ 1.4 billion Muslims are excellent market for halal products - business opportunity Halal products and services are acceptable to non-Muslims Rapid development and interest in halal products and services in the world Products with halal logo synonymous with quality products Malaysia’s multi-ethnic and multi-religious society enable diversified products Malaysia is highly respected by Muslim countries and Muslim communities around the world Cost effective production/manufacturing of halal products using available raw materials in the country, region/neighbouring countries

If not rectified, may tarnish the nation‘s/organization‘s reputation and tremendously effecting the nation/organization Halal products and services worldwide! WHY IT HAPPENED? Upon close analysis, the likely cause for these recurring distasteful events are: Lack or insufficient competent & responsible personnel Industry: absent or defective internal control and monitoring mechanism/system on Halal Authority: cannot implement effective processing for Halal certification & monitoring

21 Halal Training Programme
Objective To produce trained, competent, and responsible personnel that: will plan, direct and supervise halalness/halal assurance division for the complete implementation of halal concept in the organization can execute halal-related certification and monitoring processes more efficiently “Allah likes that when someone does anything, it must be done in an excellent manner”.

The Exporters Club HALAL STANDARDS & CERTIFICATION - Future of HALAL Certification More coordinated Single Certification with a common logo Almost all countries will have a certification body in their country HALAL to emerge as an ISO-compatible standard with independent, transparent industry-compatible auditing procedures, that will in turn enable more HALAL certified products to fill the shelves to meet the global demand As the industry grows, it will require more comprehensive standards, to cover all of the stages from the farm to the fork.

The Exporters Club LIMITATIONS & CHALLENGES LIMITATIONS & CHALLENGES Currently there is no single standard that is recognised worldwide. There are also numerous Certification bodies worldwide, of which their recognitions vary from country to country. The World HALAL Council which monitors the various Certification bodies has not been able to come up with a single standard for its members. Lack of data on HALAL Trade - There is no proper classification of HALAL products under the Customs code and as such data on actual trade are difficult to obtain Most Muslim countries do not impose Halal Certificate as a compulsory requirement

Estimate of 1.7 billion Muslim consumers of HALAL products and services. The number is increasing rapidly Increased awareness – more countries are requesting for HALAL certified products and demand from non-Muslims are also increasing Range of HALAL products expanding leading to a bigger market More and more Hypermarkets and Supermarkets are setting up HALAL sections Bigger

Opportunities in HALAL Services such as Certifications, Branding, Packaging, Logistics & Shipping, Travel, Fashion, Islamic Finance and Takaful etc Opportunities in other HALAL related activities – Events, Conferences, Science and Research, Publications, HALAL Processing Zones etc Bigger
