Halal Industry Development Corporation (HDC) wants to strengthen the participation of Local Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the global Halal industry. Following this matter, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signing between HDC and Mydin Mohamed Holdings Bhd. Under the MOU, HDC will train at least 300 trainees from Mydin’s SME suppliers, who will receive certificates upon completion of the course. HDC will provide the trainers, training materials and aids for the trainees. Chief Executive Officer Datuk Seri Jamil Bidin said, growing the industry was not merely about certifying the most number of products possible but also ensuring strong infrastructure for it. The Halal training programmes by HDC are a key part of our efforts in turning Malaysia into a preferred global support and reference centre. Jamil said, HDC’s training programme would boost Mydin’s position as a leading provider of Halal products. HDC Halal Integrity vice-president Mariam Abdul Latif said the training programme currently focused on Mydin’s SME vendors and lasted for 12 months. HDC currently offers three modules in the Halal training programme – Halal Awareness, Halal Industry and Halal Professional.
