Halal food sector in Russia poised for healthy growth
Demand for halal foods is on the rise in Russia as more and more native Muslims study their religion and come to the necessity to consume only halal.
The halal food industry's future is bright, but stakeholders should unite on uniform standards for halal certifications and a single international body to govern the industry to promote the industry.
"The halal food industry is growing in double-digit numbers in Russia. Annually, we certify more than 40 enterprises in different spheres of production," Madina Kalimullina, director of the Economic Department of Russia Muftis Council, told Khaleej Times in an interview.
