PETALING JAYA: The Halal Development Corporation Bhd (HDC) will continue to focus on the digitalisation of the halal industry to increase the marketability of local halal products while strengthening the halal integrity.

This would also help create more skilled halal workers in the sector, especially in the food and non-food industries such as cosmetics and pharmaceutical, it said in a statement today.

“This includes the use of several technologies to enhance halal detection capabilities and the production of alternative ingredients to replace ingredients that are not halal or doubtful, ” said HDC.

As the coordinator of the halal ecosystem development, HDC said it will strive to facilitate the participation of industry players in the halal economy as well as boost exports and investments into halal industrial areas.

“This year, HDC will further strengthen cooperation with the agencies under the Ministry of International Trade and Industry, especially the Malaysian Investment Development Authority, the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation, the Malaysian Institute of Automotive, Robotics and IoT and SIRIM to strengthen the Malaysian halal ecosystem.

“Meanwhile, in terms of empowering the halal certification and enforcement system, HDC is ready to share its expertise, ” it said. — Bernama
