Just like Nutella, a new opportunity for the companies is to focus on Halal Certification; In fact, we see a growing request by consumers for products that are Islam-conformed (Halal Certified butchers or certified butchers that buy Halal meat, products and foods certified Halal). Halal Certified Products, permissible in Islamic Religion, are the new business on global Halal market and are for both, Muslims and Non-Muslim consumers. Therefore, companies of all the world go hunting for Halal certifications of their specific products, organics and all-natural foods.
Halal conformity mark guarantee to company’s sales operation of products on Islamic and non-Islamic markets.
Nevertheless, among multinational companies who have joined the new Halal Industry: Bacio Perugina, Acqua San Pellegrino, Acqua Panna of Nestlè are certified by Halal International Authority (HIA).
On global Halal market there are also Nutella of Ferrero, Ovetti di Cioccolata and Carrefour. They are part of Islamic and Asian markets already and their products are Halal certified.
At the same time, the ‘’Global Islamic Economy’’ in his Report 2018/19: “estimates that Muslims spent US$2.1 trillion across the food, beverage and lifestyle sectors in 2017, and forecasts spending to reach US$3 trillion by 2023. By category, food and beverage leads Muslim spend at US$1.3 trillion, followed by fashion at US$270 billion, travel at US$177 billion, pharmaceuticals at US$87 billion and cosmetics at US$61 billion.’’
This hunting for Halal certifications is born because only with that it is possible have an access on Islamic global markets of countries where Islamic prevalence is strong but also because Halal certification has a high environmental and cultural impact for these countries as they guarantee the authenticity, health and certified origin of the products.
