It receives the Malaysian Halal Certification Malaysia for its meat, salad bar and bakery sections from the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) yesterday.

“Halal as a repayment for client’s loyalty. We are not targeting any increase in sales through the halal certification but it is being done as an appreciation for our loyal customers,” said Carrefour Malaysia chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Shamsudin.

The initiative, which began at Carrefour Putrajaya, will be extended to other branches nationwide. It will also eventually cover other sections of the hypermarkets.

Information kiosks (I-Kiosks) are also available for customers to check the status of products being sold.

He added despite news that the French retail giant is exiting South-East Asia, Carrefour Malaysia is still going ahead with the opening of two new branches in in Puchong Utama and Section 23 in Shah Alam, Selangor.

It also plans to increase sales of food products from SMEs from 10% to 11% in next year. Asked if sales had been affected by news of Carrefour’s divestment, he said there had been no impact to date as the hypermarket operator had many loyal customers.

Apart from Malaysia, Carrefour as the world’s second-biggest retailer is also said to be selling off its businesses in Singapore and Thailand.
