KARACHI, Dec.6, 2010 (News Agencies)– . The Pakistani National Assembly will fully support the passing of bill for marketing and promotion of halal food. Speaker National Assembly Dr Fehmida Mirza at the 1st Global Halal Congress organised by Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) in collaboration with Halal Development Council Saturday asked TDAP to prepare a draft in this regard on the basis of recommendations of the congress and consultation with other stakeholders in halal food sector in the country, the Associated Press of Pakistan reported.

She said though Pakistan was the 6th largest producer of milk, 8th largest producer of meat and poultry products, it’s share in global Halal food market was very negligible. Mirza underlined the need to get a due share for Pakistan in the global halal market. She said the present government was focusing and encouraging the production of halal food in the country and export abroad.

Referring to the certification of Halal food in the country, she said lot of progress has been made in this regard and efforts were underway to accomplish this task.

She said the global halal food market was changing very fast and expanding every day whether in respect of production, quality, marketing or its taste.

Grand Mufti of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Dr Mustufa Ceric said Muslims countries should focus on the quality, taste and presentation of halal food.

Our focus should be on how to make halal food attractive to the world besides Muslims. The most important thing was the production of organic food, which does not have any chemical or additive for preservation, he added.
