Ingredients and processing are the main concern for consumers as well as manufacturers to produce consumable Halal food and beverage products.
People often confine their thoughts on the topic strictly to meat, and as well as harvesting activities. A lesser-known segment of the Halal food industry involves the production of Halal non-meat foods and Halal beverages.
The Halal food & beverage industry has been growing rapidly due to a number of factors and producers need to comply with the Halal system to manufacture the products.
Here are the important keys to being considered by Halal Food & Beverage Companies :
- Ingredients need to be Halal certified
Beverages & non-meat food produces should be certified Halal, with Halal certification being necessary for certain high-risk products. Not all ingredients need to be Halal certified, but they must all be checked by an internationally accredited Halal certification body.
- Increasing awareness among Muslim consumers
Processed foods contain lists of complex ingredients with origins and production methods that are not clear. Manufacturers should look at Halal certification of their non-meat food and beverage products as an opportunity to grow their brand among Muslim consumers.
- Operate a separate production facility to prevent halal contamination
During the manufacturing or packaging process, it is important that halal food manufacturers operate a separate production facility to prevent halal contamination. Equally important is the packaging process.
