Are Muslim-majority countries doing enough to achieve a universal halal standard?

“Our challenge lies in being Shariah-complaint," said Mohammed Badri, Managing Director of the Dubai-based International Halal Accreditation Forum. "We lack in Research and Development (R&D) which could tell us what’s wrong or right."
The panel agreed that it is non-Muslim countries, like Brazil and France, for example, that are reaping benefits by becoming major suppliers of halal products.
“All supplies are from non-Islamic countries. Brazil is the largest producer and exporter of halal food; Nestle is the largest supplier of halal foods, and France has become a big beneficiary from exports of halal cosmetics and clothes,” Rafi-uddin Shikoh, CEO and Managing Director of Dinar Standard said.
The panel also felt that halal products have tremendous potential for growth since the concept of 'halal' is not confined to a single industry. Besides food, cosmetics, clothes and medicines, halal tourism is also witnessing growing popularity among Muslims across the world.
