Dubai will have an international centre for halal products and will enjoy 10 per cent of the global market share in the next three years, Engr Hussain Nasser Lootah, a member of the Supreme Committee of Islamic Economy and director general of Dubai Municipality, said.
“The centre will include an international laboratory and accreditation centre and will be active by the first quarter of 2014,” he said.
While halal products are valued at $2.7 trillion (Dh9.9 trillion), the size of halal food is estimated at $685 billion, Lootah added.
“The role of the centre is to check if submitted products meet the Islamic standard for accreditation,” he said.
