Halal certification needed so meat producers can grow exports, says federal MP Bruce Scott
by Louise Yaxley
Federal Liberal National Party Bruce Scott says that if Australia is to capitalise on jobs and exports in the rural sector, it needs to ensure its food is halal certified.
Mr Scott, who heads a parliamentary committee examining exports to the Middle East, said Australia was selling more food by value to the Middle East than to China.
He said halal certification was a prerequisite for exporting to the Middle East.
