About Halal Food Market in Europe
Halal is an Arabic term meaning "permissible" or "lawful." The opposite of halal is haram, which means "prohibited" or "unlawful." These terms govern each aspect of Muslims' lives, including food, clothing, banking, traveling, and so on.
In recent years, the term "halal" has evolved in meaning to encompass a range of hygienic and high-quality food products, meat products, cosmetics, personal care products, leather goods, and food ingredients. Though halal foods were originally intended for Muslims, people of all religions and ethnic backgrounds are showing an interest in them today, as they are recognized for their safety and ethical qualities.

These agencies will introduce and enforce clear and verifiable standards to be followed by all vendors. This will also facilitate a systematic logistics and supply chain management system, with track-and-trace procedures in place, to monitor the transport of these foods globally and ensure that their integrity is maintained.”
According to the report, the rise in the Muslim population globally, and specifically in Europe, has triggered the demand for halal food. To cater to this growing demand, an increasing number of retail formats are selling halal food products. It is mandatory for supermarkets here to label foods containing halal meat. Across Europe, retail chains like Tesco, Sainsbury's, Marks & Spencer, and Waitrose sell halal food, including halal meat, confectionery, bread, cereals, and snacks.
Further, the report states that halal food products have to be certified by a reputable and authentic global or local body. This is mandatory in all countries manufacturing and exporting these products. However, the lack of a global certification authority has led to different standards being developed in different countries.
