Halal Haven or Havoc?

Post Today reported several news about Halal food industries permits today. The first was about Dismiss of a committee member who might have been responsible for issuing the permit to an unqualified factory. it was later found that pork ingredient were contaminated Halal food manufactured at the factory. The National Islamic Council said the permit might be frauded.

Post Today also report promising export of “Halal food products from Thailand is estimated to be at alomost 300 million Baht per annum.”

After a blog post regarding seafood bank and halal industries in the South, the promising business was not that bright. Even withing certifying authority, when it involve business, principles could be set aside. It is not surprising to see why Halal food industries are promoted as a way to end poverty. The problem is whose poverty?
