The Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST) is all set to take steps to foster halal industry of Pakistan and to capture the international Halal products market worth $3 trillion. An inter-ministerial meeting would soon be convened in this regard, to expedite the progress on halal food and making the industry compliant to international standards. “There is a strong need of developing standards and enacting a law to advertise our Halal products, and will boost our export especially in Middle East and Europe,” said a ministry official. Globalisation of food, trade and increased consumer awareness regarding food safety standards contribute towards new demands for halal, healthy and hygienic food, the official added.
