Halal food products have been generally accepted to represent safety and quality. In Islam, food is deemed as halal or permitted if it satisfies certain qualifications: the source of the food; its cleanliness; the manner it is cooked, stored, served and eaten; and even the method of its disposal. There has been and increasing global demand for halal food due to the growing trend among Muslims, who are not only observing their religious dietary obligations but also the general interest in safe, hygienic and healthy sources of food. The fact that this trend has widely spread to non-Muslims means that the market for halal food will inevitably expand. Pursuant to this development, Malaysia has proclaimed its interest to be a regional halal hub and as a Muslim country, Malaysia has great potentials to cater for the global demand for halal food, which has enormous market. Nevertheless, these potentials may be hampered by some challenges that may eventually impede Malaysia’s vision to become a global halal hub. This paper highlights the prospects of Malaysia to become a global halal food hub by weighing both the potentials and challenges.
