Request sample report:

“A key segment of the halal food market is meat and live animals. As Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) member nations import nearly 85% of their meat and live animals, the market presents a huge potential for the leading vendors of this market,” said Arushi Thakur, one of Technavio’s lead analysts for food market research.

“The potential market for halal food is over one trillion dollars, and yet, there are very few dedicated halal certified food producers or manufacturers in the global market. Therefore, there is huge scope for building a global brand with halal and tayyab integrity across the value chain. In addition, integration of the halal segment with organic, genetically modified (GMO) free, and fair trade food practices are expected to find a wide consumer base during the forecast period,” added Arushi.
