Halal Meat Production & Market Opportunities by Dr Awal Fuseini

Share

The Halal sector is one of the fastest growing segments of the meat industry due to rapid expansion in Muslim population across Europe, and the fact that Muslims over-index in the consumption of meat. This has resulted in a scramble for a share of the Halal market by the mainstream retail multiples and some independent butchers. Despite the economic significance of this market, there are welfare concerns regarding traditional Halal methods of slaughter. Additionally, the rules of Halal meat production are not well understood by industry due to differences in the interpretation of the dietary laws within the Muslim community. The objective of this book is to highlight the economic significance of the Halal market, explain the different Halal slaughter methods, touch on the significance of animal welfare in Islam, the benefits of Halal certification to food businesses and give suggestions on how the welfare of animals can be improved during Halal slaughter. Further, the acceptability of modern slaughter technologies (e.g. pre-slaughter stunning) based on different markets is highlighted to enable food business operators to understand the market dynamics. The target audience includes academics, policymakers, animal welfare organisations, students, farmers, abattoir operators, consumers, animal welfare organisations and others.
