Iran to launch halal food brand
ISLAMABAD – Head of Iran’s Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture Mohsen Jalalpour has said that Iran will launch its international halal food brand in the next few months.
He said that the country had received certification for establishing an international halal food brand. “The market in the regional countries and even in Europe strongly welcomes sales of halal food produced by Islamic states. Accordingly, representation of a halal brand has been obtained by Iran which we hope to establish in the next few months,” he said.
The global halal industry is estimated to be worth more than $2 trillion, including a $1 trillion food market which is expanding. Major Muslim countries from Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei and Turkey to non-Muslim nations such as Japan, New Zealand and the UK are jockeying for position.
