Halal & Business

What is Halal?

Halal is an Arabic word that means “permitted or lawful”. The opposite of Halal is Haram which means “impermissible or unlawful”. Halal and Haram are the universal terms that apply to all facets of life.

“Halal is a way of life…..”


In reference to food, it is the Islamic dietary standard, as prescribed in the Sharia's (Islamic Law). In today’s modern technology world, the food we eat or the products we use may not be from permitted (Halal) source. Halal is applicable to all Food products, Meat products, Cosmetics, Personal care products, Pharmaceutical/Health care products and Food contact materials.
Traditionally, ‘Halal’ was seen to refer only to meat and poultry, specifically with reference to the method of slaughter. The concept of halal is expansive and has more science & ethics to it and can be applied to the entire mankind. More recently, Halal has grown and become a powerful market parameter that continues to evolve across different subsectors of the food supply chain and has affected related industries such as non-meat foods, animal feed, herbal medicines, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, personal care, travel and hospitality, lifestyle markets such as fashion and media.


A product is considered Halal if as a whole and in part is:

  • Free of, and not containing any substance or ingredient, taken or extracted from a Haram animal or ingredient.
  • Made processed, produced, manufactured and/or stored by using utensils, equipment and/or machinery that has been cleansed according to Islamic law.
  • Must never have come into contact with, touch or be close to a Haram substance during preparation, making, production, manufacture processing and/or storage.


A product is considered Haram if it comes into contact with or as a whole or in part contains:

  • Animals not slaughtered in a Halal manner.
  • Pigs, dogs, donkeys or carnivores.
  • Dead animal due to strangulation, a blow to the head (as in clubbing), a headlong fall, natural causes (carrion), being gored or attacked by another animal.
  • Animals having protruding canine teeth such as monkeys, cats, and lions.
  • Amphibious animals such as frogs and crocodiles.
  • Undesirable insects such as worms, flies and cockroaches.
  • Birds of prey with talons such as owls and eagles.
  • Alcohol, harmful substances, poisonous and intoxicating plants or drinks. Blood and its by-products

Why Halal (Permitted)?

  • To serve the national and international Muslim communities in meeting their religious compliance
  • Halal products are typically known as being pork free, alcohol free, and for the specific method of slaughter.
  • Halal is for both, Muslim and Non-Muslims alike as it stands as a Quality assurance for all.
  • Hygienically processed and Safe for consumption & Use.
  • Quality standard of production & ingredients / materials


The term Halal in food is also associated with the term “Tayyib” which means Wholesome, Good, Pleasant, Excellent, Fair, Lawful, Pure and Clean. Many consumers of Halal foods believe that if prepared in the correct way, Halal and Tayyib (lawful and pure) foods can also lead to health and well-being benefits. As part of Halal certification, consideration is also given to a business’s food safety practices.

Halalan Toyyiban concept is not only limited to pork contamination and alcohol content issues. It also covers scopes related to food safety, hygiene and biosecurity. Moreover, Halal is a ‘farm-to-fork’ process with halal compliance required all the way through the supply chain, aspects such as warehousing, transportation and logistics to play a role in maintaining and demonstrating halal integrity. Therefore, standardized and industrial recognized analytical test methods are crucial to quantify and verify Halal integrity to ensure Halal compliance.


Halal food has been around for more than 1,400 years, but only in recent decades have halal products gained global prominence. The global Muslim population exceeds 1.6 billion, is growing at twice the rate of the non-Muslim world and is expected to reach 2.2 billion by 2030. It is therefore not surprising that the market for halal products and services is attracting more attention.

From a business perspective, the halal market undoubtedly offers a range of compelling opportunities. As many traditional markets reach saturation, the emergence of a new market, based on halal values and principles, is in effect creating a new commercial paradigm. This is strongly led by the food and beverage sector, and has more recently expanded into the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and personal-care sectors, driven by increasing consumer awareness and an entrepreneurial eye for new market opportunities.
