ASB looking at turning Labuan into Halal hub
Published on: Tuesday, July 18, 2017


Quote:
Labuan: Asian Supply Base (ASB) is looking for alternatives to support Labuan like they have done the past 40 years being the major contributor to the island's economy and is now looking at developing it into a halal hub.

"We already have most of it - the transhipment, the warehouse and the port.

We have the logistics to support Labuan as a halal hub but we need to be certified by the halal supply chain management," said its CEO Datuk Harris Annuar Tan.

"We already have a halal port in the Kiamsam area, but it is only 20 acres and the size may pose a problem to investors. However, we can convince investors that it is enough. If any developments need to be done, it is possible because there are many empty warehouses in Labuan," he told a press conference.

Also present was Labuan MP Datuk Rozman Isli, who is also part of the company's board.

Rozman said ASB has taken advantage of Labuan's strategic location and made the island into a logistics hub.

"They have turned a potential into reality. Therefore, I believe that they will continue to do just that in the future.
So the halal hub development is a huge possibility and a great opportunity," said Rozman.

He also said ASB is an asset to the island that should not be wasted and only limited to oil and gas.

ASB is looking away from the oil and gas industry for other alternatives in the port business to sustain the workforce.

ASB has the biggest workforce in Labuan supporting over 1000 staff. Some 97 more companies are affiliated with ASB and thus having an accumulated 4,000 to 5,000 staff.

Even with such a high figure, ASB, being a state government company, has never retrenched anyone.
In fact, ASB is employing more people during this period of oil and gas turbulence.

"Rozman advised me not to retrench anyone. This is the time to help the locals and the economy," said Harris.

"Therefore, we need to find other means to support our workforce. I'm thankful for our very supportive board being involved in our planning for new business ventures," he said.

ASB is traditionally a logistics support for oil and gas activities but now with the industry's downfall, ASB does not want to be limited to only oil and gas.

"We started reaching out to Europe, China, US and Australia by extending our invitation to them to come and take a look at what Labuan has to offer in the port business," said Harris.

The CEO also met with technology partners from London willing to team up with ASB and their subsidiaries to look into bringing their industry into the island.

The ASB infrastructure has been developed for over 35 years. It is more than just an oil and gas port, it is an open entity.

"We used to have 20 to 30 vessels coming in to our port per day, but now we only have five to six.

So to make full use of our facility, we have decided to open it to the possibility of other ventures.

This is also a great opportunity for us," said Harris.

Although ASB will be working on the halal hub, it will be segregated from their oil and gas activities.

The island is the centre of Asia Pacific and can easily establish itself as a distribution centre especially in South East Asia.

"Therefore, I seek the support of all the chambers of commerce in Labuan to look for players to come into the island. No one can complain if we have already provided all these infrastructures and facilities.

All we need now to make this possible," he said. - Iffah Dilaney

Jakim-approved mobile app to verify halal status
By Izwan Ismail - August 7, 2017 @ 3:53pm



Quote:
GETTING truly halal-certified products can be quite a challenge for many Muslims, especially when overseas.

The problem led technopreneur Amnah Shaari to come up with an app that can help Muslims around the world get truly halal products.

“It’s a problem many fellow Muslims face. Sometimes when you buy something, you want to know if the ingredients or processes used to make the products are halal,” she explains.

THE IDEA

Amnah, through her company Serunai Commerce, with the cooperation of Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (Department of Islamic Development Malaysia or Jakim), has come out with Verify Halal, a mobile app designed to empower consumers and suppliers alike to instantly verify the halal status of a product simply by scanning the barcode of the product via their smartphones.

The app also allows consumers to search for halal products by product name, brand, company and country.

“People take their phones wherever they go, and having the app in the phone will be handy, especially when they are shopping in a supermarket,” she says.

Verify Halal, launched in May this year, is the first Jakim-approved platform and now has a huge data pool of products that have Jakim-standard compliance from 66 halal certification bodies from 40 countries.

“Many do not know that Jakim has the highest standard of halal certification in the world and most countries that want to implement halal certification will use the Jakim standard
,” says Amnah.

The Verify Halal app took six months to develop, and all development work was done by Malaysians. It can be downloaded for free at Google Play and Apple App Store.

“It’s a truly Malaysian creation and we plan to promote its usage worldwide,” says Amnah.

VARIOUS FUNCTIONS

The app’s function to check the halal status of a product is just the tip of the iceberg, says Amnah, adding that its intended objective goes beyond that.

“The bigger idea is to enable those doing businesses that are halal to have access to a bigger market and be more transparent,” she says.

Many businesses that provide halal products cannot penetrate the international market such as Europe because they don’t have a barcode system, and one of the characteristics of this initiative is to enable all products to have barcodes so that all the processes and ingredients used in making them can be traced.

“This is also about food safety,” says Amnah.

“Verify Halal app is part of a digital trading ecosystem that Serunai has been developing along with the global halal data pool,” she says. “We will be expanding the platform to enhance verification and connectivity for small retailers. Serunai Commerce will continue to facilitate and evolve the trading digital architecture of the global halal market.”

The global halal market is currently estimated at US$2.3 trillion (RM9.8 trillion) covering both food and non-food sectors.

PROTECTING CONSUMERS

With all the news regarding foods and products that are supposed to be halal but are actually non-halal and vice-versa, consumers may be confused.

Jakim’s director of Halal Hub Division, Datuk Dr Sirajuddin Suhaimee, explains that “it’s time to ensure that both consumers as well as retailers and suppliers now have the ability to instantly check the halal integrity of any product. It’s about enhancing consumer confidence and perception towards the Malaysian Halal Standard.

“Verify Halal is not only directly connected to our Jakim database, but also extends to numerous other global certification bodies that Jakim recognises. We want the app to become the global consumer and halal brand reference point. We want it to be a platform for both consumers and brands to bridge information gaps or questions and we also want the app to become a fulcrum for the growth and integrity of the halal industry,” he says.

“It is important for Muslims not only in Malaysia but the world over to have peace of mind as well as access to instantly verify the integrity of halal products,” adds Sirajuddin.

A product can be termed halal by taking into account several factors. “It’s not just always about ingredients, but also the processes involved in making such products,” he says. “For example, mineral water should be halal as it’s just water, but why do we need to certify it? It is because the processes involved in making and producing the mineral water may not be of halal, for example the filter used,” explains Sirajuddin.

All the products to be listed on the Verify Halal app must have Jakim certification first. The rest of the process of getting listed can be found at www.verifyhalal.com.

The app plays an important role in shaping consumer attitudes towards the integrity of halal brands and products and making them less prone to be susceptible to unverified claims about halal authenticity.

Mondelez Malaysia is one of the first multinational companies to come onboard and be part of the Verify Halal app.

A part of the global snacking powerhouse, Mondelez International is home to iconic brands such as Cadbury Dairy Milk, Oreo, Tiger Biskuat, Jacob’s, Chipsmore, Halls and Twisties.


FUTURE PLANS

Amnah says the company hopes to make Verify Halal a full-fledged e-commerce platform.

“We are looking at how we can make this platform a marketplace for halal products where people can not just check the status of the products, but also buy them online,” says Amnah.

Besides that, making location-based features available is also in the plan. “This means users will be notified of halal-certified products near them if they are a distance away from the products,” she says.

“Hopefully, this app will be a game-changing factor in the halal market and benefit millions of people around the world,” adds Amnah.

Export Of Malaysian Halal Products Worth RM42 Billion In 2016
Published on Tuesday, 08 August 2017 09:47


Quote:
The export of halal products from Malaysia, half of these being food and beverages, reached about RM42 billion last year.

International Trade and Industry Minister, Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed said RM12 billion had been invested in Malaysia’s halal industry, with the companies involved able to create 11,000 jobs.

He was replying to a question from Datuk Mohd Zaim Abu Hasan (BN-Parit) on developments in the country’s halal product industry, at the Dewan Rakyat sitting, here, yesterday.

Meanwhile, his deputy Datuk Ahmad Maslan said to date, the government had approved RM19.78 million in loans to 51 micro, small and medium enterprises in Sabah under the Business Accelerator Programme (BAP).

He said RM12.78 million had been allocated for 89 SMEs in that state under the Bumiputera Enterprise Enhancement Programme (BEEP) up to June, 2017.

“Throughout 2014 until this year, RM2.27 million in grants have been approved for youth entrepreneurs in training them to manage their own businesses under SME Corp,” he said in reply to questions from Datuk Raime Unggi (BN-Tenom).

Datuk Irmohizam Ibrahim (BN-Kuala Selangor) posed a supplementary question on the government’s efforts at encouraging digital-based economic activities among entrepreneurs.

To this, Ahmad said the ministry would continue to assist SME operators through various programmes to encourage e-dagang or e-commerce among traders and entrepreneurs.— Bernama

Malaysia eyes Africa for halal exports



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is on track to export RM50bil halal products by 2020 from RM42.18bil last year, aided by more entrepreneurs increasing their presence in the global market, said Halal Industry Development Corporation (HDC) Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Seri Jamil Bidin.

He said despite the global economic downturn, demand for halal products, especially food and beverages, remained high with China continuing to be the biggest importer, followed by Singapore and Indonesia.

"Next, we are going to work with Saudi Arabia to make it as an entry point as we are about to expand our presence in the African continent," he told reporters at the Halfest ASEAN 2017 meet-and-greet session here today.

Jamil said the African continent had a population of some 1.22 billion, out of which about 200 million are Muslims.

However, this market is untapped, mainly due to various problems including in terms of logistics.

"That is why during the recent visit by King Salman Abdulaziz Al Saud (of Saudi Arabia), Malaysia had discussed with the country to make it as a gateway to enter the Middle East and Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

"Next month, we will fly to Saudi Arabia to finalise this cooperation to jointly leverage the halal industry. Besides Saudi Arabia, we will also work with the Japanese to develop the industry there," he said.

He added that in the upcoming Halfest event, ten delegates from Pakistan would be coming to finalise the cooperation with Malaysia.

Halfest ASEAN, or Halal Fiesta ASEAN 2017 will take place from Aug 23-27 at the MINES International Exhibition and Convention Centre and is expected to attract 100,000 visitors.

More than 550 booths and 150,000 products and services would be showcased.

The five-day event, which is organised by the HDC, aims to become the platform for local entrepreneurs to become the halal champions and to expand their businesses into the international market.- Bernama

Johor a gateway for Xinjiang in Asean halal market
August 22, 2017, Tuesday


Quote:
XINJIANG: Johor can become the gateway for Xinjiang-based companies to penetrate the lucrative Asean halal market.

Johor Tourism, Trade and Consumerism Committee chairman Datuk Tee Siew Kiong said its strategic location to neighbouring Singapore, gave the state a competitive edge and offered vast opportunities within and beyond the shores.

“Apart from that, we already have a good infrastructure in place, as well as, recognised Halal certification especially from member countries of the Organisation Islamic Countries,” he said during a business dialogue with representatives from Xinjiang Halal Traders and Manufacturers Association here on Friday.

Currently, Asean which comprised 10 member countries, offered a massive market of 600 million people and a majority of the population were Muslims.

Tee is currently leading a 11-member delegation, comprising representatives, among others, from the Johor State Investment Centre , Johor Tourism and Johore Islamic Council, on a trade mission to China’s Autonomous Region of Xinjiang and Gansu from August 17 to 23.

With good bilateral relations between Malaysia and China, both parties could exchange information on potential sectors that can be explored while at the same time create synergy that both parties can tap, Tee said.

Meanwhile, Xinjiang Halal Traders and Manufacturers Association chairman Radil Abla said there was also a huge potential for Malaysian local companies to tap into the autonomous halal market.

“Xinjiang has a population of 25 million people, of which about 60 per cent are Muslims. Besides, there are 18 entry points to this region (Xinjiang) which also serve as a gateway to other continents,” he said.

Apart from that, Xinjiang is also known as East Turkestan, strategically bordering eight countries – Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.

In Xinjiang, the delegation also held dialogues with representatives from Xinjiang International Exhibition Administration, as well as, trade associations.

In addition, the delegation also visited Arman Muslim Foods Industrial Group of Xinjiang Ltd, one of the largest halal food manufacturer in Xinjiang, and the Doowin Group, a real estate developer. — Bernama

Malaysia eyes RM50b halal exports in 2020
By AINA NASA
August 23, 2017 @ 6:22pm



Quote:
SERI KEMBANGAN: Malaysia is aiming for a whopping RM50 billion worth of halal exports in 2020, said International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed.


Speaking at the launch of Asean Halfest 2017 here today, he said currently, the halal industry has garnered RM42 billion worth of exports.

"We aim for RM50 billion in three years time, with 330,000 job opportunities opened.

"Today, the halal industry under the Malaysia Halal Council has provided 248,508 job opportunities."


Mustapa also said the ministry wanted the gross domestic product of the halal industry at 8.7 per cent in 2020, from its current 7.5 per cent.

He also paid tribute to the evolution of the halal industry in Malaysia, which kickstarted back in 1974 when the halal certification process was introduced.

Launching the sixth edition of the Halfest was deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who in his speech rallied entrepreneurs, corporations and industry players to strive to ensure local halal products were high-end and at the highest quality.

"Malaysia must aim for local halal products to be high-end not only in terms of quality, but also packaging, branding and marketing strategy.

"Halal is not confined to the product and logo as people know, but other elements as well."

Ahmad Zahid, who is also chairman of the Malaysia Halal Council, has high hopes for Malaysia to be at the forefront of the halal industry, catering to 23 per cent of the global Muslim population and beyond.

"The template set for halal products are currently at the highest benchmark.

"This was made possible by collaborations from the Malaysia Halal Council, industry players, banking industries, religious authorities and even the scientific community."

Asean Halfest 2017, held today until Aug 27, consists of over 500 booths and 15,000 innovative and quality halal products and services.

It is expected to draw 100,000 local and international visitors, providing a transformational perspective of halal products that extend beyond economic value

Halal exports to Japan set to grow with memorandum of cooperation
By Amirah Nabilah - August 29, 2017 @ 4:47pm


Quote:
KUANTAN: Malaysian providers of halal products and services can now penetrate the Japanese market through a memorandum of cooperation signed with the East Asian giant.

Deputy International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Ahmad Maslan said this was an initiative made to promote cooperation and expertise in the halal industry between the two countries.

He said this would further open doors to Malaysian exporters of halal products and services as they would be the most prioritised during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic games.

“Since our halal certificate is acknowledged globally, our halal aspects (products and services) would be easily accepted by Muslim visitors to Japan during the three-week games.

“Malaysia had been given the honour to be the main contributor of halal aspects in logistics, warehouse and restaurants,” he said.

The field of cooperation is done with the Japanese External Trade Organisation (Jetro), which includes halal expertise, trade and investment promotion, development of halal certification and halal tourism in Japan, among others.

Ahmad was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the “Pocket Talk: Business Opportunities on Halal Industry in Japan” event attended by around 70 participants from small and medium Pahang enterprises.

Also present were Jetro senior director Rasol Abu Bakar, its managing director Akira Kajita, and Halal Media Japan (HMJ) founder Shinya Yokoyama.

Ahmad said, Malaysia’s total global exports of halal products and services reached RM42.17 billion last year, with Japan accounting for RM2.66 billion.

He said the figures indicated an increasing trend in exports this year.

Cambodia enlists Malaysia to support halal strategy
By RJ Whitehead 08-Sep-2017


Quote:
Cambodia has called on Malaysia to help develop its halal industry in a bid to boost exports, drive tourism and attract investment from the Middle East.

In a meeting in Phnom Penh with Malaysia’s top religious official, Jamil Khir, Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen said his country had been taking steps to diversify its production base from traditional industries and was keen to develop its food sector.

“We want to encourage halal training for Muslim people and to encourage Islamic investors to come to Cambodia to promote halal food production for export,” Hun Sen said, adding that the country’s burgeoning relationship with Malaysia could help in its aims.

Jamil agreed to refer Hun Sen’s proposals to Malaysia’s halal food manufacturers and regulators.

Cambodia plans to finalise draft regulations on halal food certification by the end of the year. These will be sent to Malaysia for scrutiny before they are implemented, said Sos Mousine, the Cambodian official who is steering the process.

The new rules are intended to make it easier for entrepreneurs to open halal restaurants that meet strict standards.

“Anyone, including Muslims, non-Muslims and foreigners, will be able to open a halal restaurant, as long as they follow the criteria for halal standards set by the committee,” Sos Mousine said.

“Now we have a direct flight from Dubai to Cambodia with Emirates, more tourists will come if they know they can find halal food,” he said.

The Commerce Ministry has been supporting a drive towards halal food production, its spokesman has said.

“It benefits not only local Cambodian Muslims, but also all Muslim people, especially Muslim tourists.”

Two Malaysia-based Islamic financial institutions are expected to open their first Phnom Penh branches in the next 18 months to assist Muslim businesses in Cambodia

Malaysia officially recognises UAE halal system
WAM
17:07 September 16, 2017
DUBAI

Quote:
The UAE has received Malaysia’s recognition of the ‘UAE Halal Products Control System’, national certificates and the national Halal mark, the Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology (ESMA) said on Saturday.

The recognition will facilitate the trade of UAE halal products and ensure acceptance in Malaysian markets, as well as markets that accept Malaysian halal systems certification, of which there are 60 markets globally.

“This UAE-led initiative, a first of its kind in the Arab and Middle East, will open up export horizons to producers in the country, as well as export and re-export support to dozens of new markets, which is positively reflected on the support and encouragement of international industries, especially in the markets of East and South East Asia and the Australian continent, and also contributes to food security in the country,” said Abdullah Abdul Qader Al Maeeni, Director-General of ESMA.

The Malaysian Department of Islamic Development sent the official recognition certificate to ESMA after the UAE hosted a Malaysian delegation that reviewed the UAE Halal Control System Global Practices.

According to official reports, bilateral trade between the UAE and Malaysia amounted to US$6.1 billion last year. Malaysia’s total exports to the UAE amounted to about $3.04 billion, and the value of imports reached $3.59 billion, representing a growth in intra-trade.

Japanese firms eye Malaysia's halal industry
CORPORATE NEWS
Friday, 6 Oct 2017 4:33 PM MYT


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Japan’s Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp (SMBC) is looking to back a push by Japanese firms planning to invest in Malaysia’s Sharia-compliant halal market, an SMBC official said.

Japanese companies active in food, cosmetics, logistics, transportation and storage are keen to tap the Malaysian market in a drive to appeal to Muslim customers globally, Yoshimi Gunji, the head of SMBC’s Malaysia operations told Reuters in an interview on Thursday.

He said the bank was facilitating such investments.

“For the whole supply chain for the halal industry, there’s interest ... That’s one area where SMBC is really focused on,” Gunji said. He declined to identify firms considering Malaysian investments, nor give details of how much finance SMBC might be involved in lining up.

Gunji said SMBC will also focus on property and project financing in Malaysia, particularly big-ticket items such as the high-speed rail project between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. Some Malaysian media reports have said the rail project could cost about RM50bil.

Muslim-majority Malaysia aims to be a global halal hub by 2020, when the halal industry is expected to contribute 8.7% to the country’s GDP, according to government agency Halal Industry Development Corp.

The global halal market, which has already attracted global consumer and cosmetics giants like Unilever PLC and L’Oreal SA, is currently estimated at US$2.3tril, covering both food and non-food sectors, according to the agency.

To be halal-certified, products must not contain traces of pork, alcohol or blood, and must be made on factory lines free of contamination risk.

Gunji said SMBC, a core banking unit of Japan’s third-largest lender Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group, was looking to expand its halal-related business globally after kicking off in Malaysia.

“First we are focused on flows between Japan and Malaysia, and then we will expand to Europe,”
he said.

One reason for Japanese companies’ interest in the halal market is the summer Olympics to be held in Tokyo in 2020.

“During the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, there will be many Muslim athletes and visitors in Japan who will be in need of halal-certified products and services,” Gunji said.

Japanese companies may seek a Malaysian halal certified partner to sell products and services in both the countries, or Malaysian firms could expand their services to Japan, he said. - Reuters

Malaysia to ramp up initiatives and internationalise halal concept
By AZURA ABAS
October 17, 2017 @ 1:21pm



Quote:
PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia will ramp up its initiatives to internationalise its halal concept and show that the market extends beyond mere halal food products.

This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi after chairing the Malaysia Halal Council meeting today.

"Via numerous new international programmes, we hope to attract the world to utilise Malaysia as a global halal excellence centre.

"These programmes include the Multaqa International Halal Authority Board and Halal Innovation and Technology Exhibition.

"Having such programmes will make the world realise that Malaysia is special and not limited only to halal food products," he said in a statement.

Zahid said Malaysia can benefit greatly from the halal industry, which has been identified as a new source of economy via the Islamic Economic Transformation Programme.

The halal industry, he said, has the means to change the Islamic economic pattern, making it more competitive.

Zahid noted that since the Malaysia Halal Council was formed on June 8 last year, it had executed various initiatives to ensure the country's halal ecosystem remains robust, thus putting Malaysia in the driver's seat in the halal industry.

The deputy prime minister also launched the Smart Halal application which aims to make it easy for consumers to get fast and accurate information relating to halal status of products.

The application, developed by the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and the Islamic Religious Development Department (Jakim), can be downloaded via the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

Jakim offers halal certification expertise to 2020 Olympics host Japan
Updated about 13 hours ago · Published on 16 Nov 2017 8:21AM · 0 comments


Quote:
THE Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) is ready to collaborate and offer expertise in halal certification to Japan, which will host the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Jakim Halal Hub Division director Sirajuddin Suhaimee said the collaboration was to help in the preparation of halal food for athletes competing in the Olympics.

This follows Prime Minister Najib Razak’s meeting with his Japanese counterpart in Tokyo on November 20 last year, where the matter was brought up.

“Jakim is ready to send officials to provide training and update the criteria used to produce halal food. The collaboration is a golden opportunity for Jakim to further promote Malaysia’s halal certification globally ,” he told reporters after a meeting between the Perlis delegation to Japan, led by Raja Muda of Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail, and the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics organising committee at Toranomon Hills Mori Tower in Tokyo yesterday.

The Games' chief operations officer, Yukihiko Nunomura, headed the Japanese delegation during the meeting.

Malaysian Ambassador to Japan Ahmad Izlan Idris and officers from the Halal Japan Corporation, headed by Hirobumi Ohsato, were present.

During the meeting, Sirajuddin briefed the Japanese delegation on Jakim’s halal certification, which is being used in 41 countries.

He said currently, two slaughterhouses in Okayama had received Jakim’s halal certification, and the animals slaughtered there were also exported to Malaysia.

“Though Jakim is satisfied with the cleanliness of food products manufactured by Japanese traders according to the requirements of Islam, the shariah aspect is not complete and this is one area where our expertise is needed.” – Bernama, November 16, 2017

China's e-commerce WBL 312 platform to boost halal trade
By NST Business - November 27, 2017 @ 12:06pm



Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Awang Ali Tengah Hassan and WIEF Foundation chairman Tun Musa Hitam witnessed the signing of agreement between YHY Group Sdn Bhd and Zhongrun Huatong Industrial Co Ltd on usage of China’s e-commerce WBL 312 platform to boost bilateral trade in halal products.
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: YHY Group Sdn Bhd and Zhongrun Huatong Industrial Co Ltd, are looking to use China’s e-commerce WBL 312 platform to boost bilateral trade in halal products.

In a statement, YHY Group said the collaborative agreement with Zhongrun Huatong was signed last week at the 13th World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF) held in Borneo Sarawak Convention Center, Kuching.

WBL 312, an e-commerce platform, established by Zhongrun Huatong and Tencent Holdings Ltd, is the first fully implemented halal traceability system in the world.

It is the only officially authorised certification in China market circulation based on systems used by China’s Ministry of Commerce and National Code Center.

“If halal certification is combined with WBL 312, more high quality Chinese halal products could be exported out. In the meantime, products that meet dual certification will get easier access into China,” YHY Group said.

“Consequently, both sides could establish and strengthen partnerships, mutual trust, mutual integration and connectivity,” it said.

Zhongrun Huatong has set up traceability interconnection with many countries including Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and other over 100 countries by the use of Beidou system, LEO and encryption system.

In Malaysia, YHY Group is the sole authorised company to issue the WBL 312 QR code for all halal products shipped into China.

Need for unified, easy availability of information on halal industry
November 27, 2017, Monday


Quote:
ISTANBUL: A halal economy proponent has proposed an initiative called the Halal Knowledge Base aimed at providing easy availability of web-based information on halal in a unified manner.

Portugal-based EU Halal chief executive officer Tayeb Habib said he was spearheading the move as information and data on the wide-ranging halal industry was now scattered all over the place.

“Now, I’m just proposing it in theoretical terms but we can find good tech people to do it, and once we have the infrastructure in place, may be we can find some investors to put in a small amount of money to drive it further,” said the CEO of the halal trading and consulting company.

He told Bernama this on the sidelines of the 5th Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Halal Expo and World Halal Summit Istanbul 2017 here.

Habib, one of the speakers at the Istanbul gathering of halal industry players, said the proposed set-up should also be able provide consultancy services to companies in need of further assistance on matters concerning halal.

Another speaker, Asad Sajjad, chief executive officer of Pakistan-based Halal Development Council, noted that Malaysia and Indonesia were the two main Muslim countries present in the global halal market – accounting for almost 15 per cent share.

He said countries such as Turkey, Pakistan, Iran and the United Arab Emirates had also become active.

However, the 10 biggest exporters of halal products, he said, were non-Muslim countries, namely India, Brazil, Australia, the US, Argentina, New Zealand, France, Thailand, the Philippines and Singapore – enjoying almost 85 per cent share of the global halal market.

Meanwhile, Iran-based Faroogh Life Sciences Research Laboratory manager Dr Mohammed Hossein Shojaee AliAbadi (rpt AliAbadi) talked about adulteration as a great challenge to halal food integrity.

To overcome the problem, he said that effective administrative measures, among others, must be put in place to prevent and control food fraud.

He also said that food items should be regularly tested for authenticity using validated test methods to ensure the absence of non-syariah compliant elements. — Bernama

Japan’s Edoya to make halal salmon skin chips in Malaysia
NNA/KYODO
NOV 29, 2017
ARTICLE HISTORY PRINT SHARE


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR – Japanese processed seafood firm Edoya Co. will produce halal salmon skin chips in Malaysia in collaboration with a local food producer, looking to cater to Muslims in Japan and Southeast Asia.

Edoya, based in Obihiro, Hokkaido, said Jabi Rice Sdn. Bhd. has agreed to make halal-certified chips, with production expected to start next year for export to Japan ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics and then for overseas markets, including Malaysia.

Using salmon skin imported from the Tokachi region, where Obihiro is located, Malaysian-made halal salmon skin chips are expected to be exported to Japan beginning in mid-2018, Edoya President Kazuo Shionoya said at an agreement signing ceremony last week in Kuala Lumpur.

With the 2020 Games approaching, “there will be a lot of Muslims around the world traveling to Japan,” Shionoya said. “The halal salmon skin chips will be ready to serve.”

The Jabi Rice factory is “halal ready” and pending approval from the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia, Shionoya said.

He added that the OEM contract with the local company is an important step to get the halal certification in order to serve the Muslim market in Japan.

The collaboration comes as a result of the Japan International Cooperation Agency’s partnership program to promote small and medium enterprises by regional branding, which is being implemented by the Obihiro Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

According to Mohd Badroldin bin Mohd Rejab, director of Jabi Rice, the factory will produce the original and curry-flavor chips.

“From our study, we found Malaysians still prefer the stronger curry flavor. The adjustment of taste will be run in the future,” he said.

Shionoya said the company promoted its product during the Malaysia International Halal Showcase held this year, considering the potential to sell the product in the Malaysian market.

He said the company received positive feedback and will study the possible expansion to other Asian countries in the future.
