April 30, 2020

With nearly two billion Muslim consumers in 57 countries, Thailand is setting sights on halal food exports in the wake of the Covid-10 pandemic. The Commerce Ministry has called upon key players in the halal food sector to map out strategies to boost exports to halal food markets, valued at about USD 2 billion/year. The country plans to initially focus on the Gulf countries and follow later with Muslim countries in Southeast Asia.
