Over the years, the demand for Halal certified products has increased dramatically. The global market in Halal is estimated to be valued in excess of £230bn. The UK market alone is valued between £4.2bn – £5bn.
Muslims in the UK who number approximately 3% of the population (2.5m people) consume 20% of all meat!. For Muslims, there is no choice but to consume Halal, which is a central tenet of Faith. With the growing awareness on the issues of Halal, consumers are looking for additional assurance before consuming meat – they are looking for suppliers to be certified by an independent organisation who has authenticated the meat as Halal.
Also, many Muslim Countries including Malaysia, United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia will only accept export meat which has undergone a rigid vetting procedure.
Numerous companies continue to choose the HMC Halal certification, whilst enjoying the marketing privileges strictly verified meat offers.
