“Food manufacturers in the Halal segment are large European companies that export their products to Indonesia, Malaysia and other Muslim countries. We intend to recruit large European manufacturers to move their production, warehousing and logistics to our planned Halal hubs in Bosnia. On the other hand we are also working with companies from Muslim world that ship their goods to Europe to use the same hubs for that. Our goal is to become the center of halal business in Europe” – explains Salkić. The project for a halal hub in the town of Gračanica is already finished, and there are several other possible sites for the rest of the planned hubs. The organization “Halal Europe”, that Salkić is leading, is going to work on the halal awareness in all of Europe in the coming period.
A delegation consisting of several Bosnian businessmen, representatives of foreign chambers and the Agency for halal certification from Tuzla will be attending the World Halal Forum, which will be held in Kuala Lumpur at 4th and 5th May. “The agency will, most probably, sign a protocol on the construction of laboratories for testing of halal products, and probably an additional one about establishing of halal Academy. The business community of Malaysia will sign the protocol regarding the possibility of building halal hubs in Bosnia” – Salkić says.
