In a bid to boost its halal meat exports, Denmark aims to develop common industry standards through collaboration between producers, brokers and marketers of the meat in the Nordic country.
“There is a shift towards more stringent halal rules in a number of countries,” Stig Munch Larsen, a senior consultant to Danish Agriculture & Food Council trade and market department, told Global Meat News.
“Malaysia is the country with the strictest rules, but also countries such as Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and Singapore have strict requirements, while African countries can also have stringent regulations,” he said.
Larsen was speaking about the two-day seminar that will tackle the aspects of halal meat industry in the European country including, slaughtering, production and export, onIslam reported.
The seminar will also highlight halal rules in Malaysia, as part of Danish efforts to accelerate the standardization of halal rules. The seminar, which was announced during a meeting between the Danish Agriculture & Food Council and producers, brokers and marketers of halal meat, aimed to discuss developing halal standards that consider the differences of halal slaughtering conventions between countries.
The concept of halal, -- meaning permissible in Arabic -- has traditionally been applied to food.
Muslims should only eat meat from livestock slaughtered by a sharp knife from their necks, and the name of Allah, the Arabic word for God, must be mentioned.
Muslim scholars agree that Shari'ah provides a divine law of mercy that should be applied on all Allah’s creations, including animals.
Islam also provides details about avoiding any unnecessary pain.
