Message From Chief Executive Officer of Halal Development Corporation Berhad (HDC)
In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious and The Most Merciful.
All praises to Allah SWT, The Creator and Sustainer of the Universe and salutations to our Prophet Muhammad SAW and His family and companions.
Halal Development Corporation Berhad (HDC) an agency under the Ministry of International Trade and Industry, spearheads the development of Malaysia’s integrated and comprehensive Halal ecosystem to position Malaysia as the most competitive country leading the global Halal industry.
As the secretariat of the Malaysia Halal Industry Development Council, HDC is the custodian of Malaysia’s Halal economy that promotes growth of Malaysia halal ecosystem community. Our role is to facilitate the onboarding of industry players onto the halal economy to increase Malaysia’s halal exports and direct investment into halal industrial parks.
Given the huge potential that we have in the Halal industry beyond the local market, business owners and entrepreneurs have started to recognize the benefits present in the growing Halal industry.
Hence, by having the first Malaysia Halal Directory, an inaugural publication that is specially catered to one niche Halal market segment, HDC hopes it helps to guide not only the consumer but also industry players in getting to have more knowledge and clear understanding about Halal brand in Malaysia.
The publication also acts as a useful platform for companies to search for Halal suppliers and to help market Malaysia certified halal products internationally.
We hope readers find it beneficial, InsyaAllah.
