Entrepreneur Article 3) Growing Awareness and Demand The awareness factor is at play for both Muslim and nonMuslim. This is because the former is becoming more aware of their religion obligations while the latter are slowly supplying the demands by shifting towards halal food products due to the rising concerns in unhygienic and unhealthy food. In the United Kingdom, halal meat accounts for about 15 percent (approximately 2.6 billion British pounds) of the total meat sales, which is higher than the proportion of Muslims in Britain. NON-FOOD HALAL MARKET OPPORTUNITIES Halal products are always relating to food and meat. The evolving lifestyle and increasing purchasing power of Muslims mean that there is growing demand for products that conform to the Islamic dietary laws. As the halal industry continues to expand beyond the food sector, there

They consumed only halal meat, looked at the food labelling to ensure that the food is free from any harmful and â€œharamâ€? or forbidden ingredients, and most importantly is they ensure that the foods and snacks served to their family are halal. Mothers try their best to serve the healthiest, delicious halal meals to their family. Then imagined one day, there are some bottled water that has the halal certified logo plastered on its body. These excited buyers immediately grab several bottles. However, does this plain mineral water need to be halal certified? The United Arab Emirates asked this very question after receiving halal certified drinking water from Thailand. This instigate questions by other companies. Does water need to be halal certified or does halal certified drinking water be suspended? In reality, all foods and beverages should be halal certified to provide a sense of assurance and confidence to the Muslim consumers. Have we forgotten the dangerous practices and unsanitary conditions of the meat packing industry and the meat adultery that became controversial few years ago? The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) controls many aspects of food production to ensure a safe level of food to the consumers. This law can be adapted to help both manufacturers and buyers understand the importance of having a halal
reverse osmosis in order to make the water safe for consumption. Throughout this process, it may come in contact with chemical materials that are potentially harmful or potentially derived from animals. The FDA does not always require processing aids to be listed on the label if they are present in trace amounts. For example, apple juice may be clarified with gelatine but it is never mentioned anywhere in the labelling. Similarly, water may go through the same purification method by passing through a bed of carbon but this method is not mentioned on the labels. Moreover, food-grade lubricants are used on machinery during production of anything from bottled water to aluminium foil. Lubricants consist mainly of oils and it may derive from any source such as animals, vegetable or synthetic. Lubricants used in manufacturing are never mentioned on food ingredients labelling. As a result, it is equally important not just foods but water bottle to have the halal certification logo to ensure a completely hygienic and smooth process from the water purification to the packaging process. To be confident in what you eat, always opt for halal certified products!

Halal Food Review
With Amir Fahmi & Shafiq Mansor
DECENT KEBABS IN THE RAVAL AREA OF THE CITY When you wander through Raval, searching for a quick bite to eat, a kebab place is never far. But if you are looking for a place with good kebab at a reasonable price, Bismillah Raval Kebabish is definitely the place you need to go to. Bismillah Raval Kebabish is located in the street of Raval at Joaquin Costa, near the MACBA museum of the modern art. This restaurant is quite famous among the locals. I stopped by this popular kebab shop in the afternoon for a late quick lunch. There is ample seating inside and it was fairly busy when I went inside the restaurant. The seated area was spaced well, surrounded by blue and white Islamic decorative tiling. Being Asian myself I can tell that the food here is very authentic. From what I have seen from the menu, with under 20 Euros, you get even get yourself an appetizer, bread, main course, and dessert. I ordered one Lamb Kebab sandwich and I must say, the taste is very phenomenal. The kebab is made with fresh ingredients and is served with a big portion of fries and salad. I was event told that the bread is freshly baked too. I like how the garlic sauce brings out the unique flavour of the sandwich. The food is delicious and the presentation is fantastic. You may find cheaper food elsewhere, but this is hands down the best meal I have had in a while. To conclude, what i can say about this restaurant is the food is delicious, the portions are generous and the service is definitely great. If you're on a tight budget and want good affordable food, I highly recommend this one!
