South Korea to adopt UAE’s halal system

South Korea is hoping to establish a strong export trade in meat products with the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and has announced it will adopt the UAE’s halal certification system to help ease the process. “The UAE halal certification program will be introduced in South Korea,” said Kwon Hae-ryong, South Korea’s Ambassador. “When our President visited UAE last March, we signed an agreement on agricultural cooperation and halal food cooperation.” According to industry sources, the halal food market reached USD 1.09 trillion in size in 2012 and is expected to grow to USD 1.62 trillion by 2018.
