“The development of Halal industry is a collaboration of the private and government sector wherein the Department of Trade and Industry works on trade laws and export, the Department of Agriculture for feed safety and production of Halal raw materials, and the National Commission of Muslim Filipinos for culture and religious implications of Halal just to name a few. Through the harmonious partnerships of these agencies, the country can build a strong Halal network that can service and collaborate with neighboring countries that have demand for Halal products. This is very timely for the ASEAN Integration as the Philippine market will be open to the growing ASEAN population of approximately 625 million, 40% of which are Muslim. Recognizing this need for consumer protection, product development and growing opportunity, Republic Act No. 10817 or the Philippine Halal Export and Development Promotion Act of 2016, has been signed into law last May 16,2016.
