Halal Park 2.0: Organising Halal Production and Supply Networks

There is a growing gap between the demand for halal and its supply networks. When these halal production and supply networks are not fixed, this not just limits the full potential of the halal industry but could even result in a possible collapse of the halal market and international halal trade.

Halal parks should be based on a solid halal cluster design, requiring close governmental control to ensure C4 (correct-consistent-complete-clear) halal eco- systems are built. These should be sustainable and contribute to the creation of halal production assets and supply networks for OIC countries.

To achieve these ends, a halal park standard should be developed by OIC countries. This will require the halal certification of industrial developers who wish to establish and manage a Halal Park 2.0.

Halal parks should also collaborate, both within countries and globally, in order to create synergy advantages. In 2019, a ‘Halal Cluster Network’ was established in Indonesia, championed by the Modern Halal Valley. This should be replicated elsewhere.

Further academic research is needed to better understand halal parks and halal cluster requirements, within both OIC and non-OIC countries.
