Halal award boosts New Zealand meat industry

Country/Region: New Zealand, United Kingdom

The New Zealand meat industry is expected to grow significantly after the Agriculture and Forestry Ministry in New Zealand won the award for best service provider at the World Halal Forum in Malaysia last week.

"This award will definitely put the New Zealand halal meat industry in a better position to market New Zealand meat to the Muslim market with confidence," said Taoufik Elidrissi, director of the New Zealand Islamic Development Training Board. "It is something that is really useful for the New Zealand meat industry. It's worth millions of dollars."

It is the first time a non-Muslim country has won the award. New systems were introduced on 3 March last year, redefining the process of halal meat production and certification in New Zealand and overseeing the standards that are in place to ensure meat is prepared in the manner prescribed by Islamic law.

"To have a government system set up in New Zealand for halal, that's a big step. Even Muslim countries don't have that," Mr Elidrissi said.

The sixth World Halal Forum awards ceremony attracted more than 1,000 people from over 40 countries. According to the Daily Mail last year, 70% of New Zealand lamb in Britain is halal, and the New Zealand lamb in most major supermarkets is entirely halal.

    • Give thanks that two small Christian communities in Niger have received livestock from Barnabas Fund to help them become self-sufficient. The Christians also received three days of training to learn how to take care of the animals. The predominantly Muslim region where these communities are located has endured more than a decade of food insecurity. Pray that the livestock will prosper, so that the Christians will be able to sell them at a good price and will become financially independent. Pray also that growing tensions between Muslims and Christians in Niger will not adversely affect them. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Wed, Sep 2014 00:41
