The rise Of Halal cuisine in an age of Islamophobia
October 29, 201726
Halal is often mistaken for a particular type of cuisine, but in fact is the Arabic word for permissible. Halal food, on the other hand, is any type of food that adheres to Islamic dietary prescriptions — free of pork, its byproducts, and alcohol, while meat and poultry must be processed according to Islamic requirements.
Historically, finding halal food in North America has been a labor-intensive affair.
In 2016, Bloomberg reported that sales of halal food in grocery and convenience stories reached $1.9 billion in the U.S., a 15-percent increase from 2012.
Globally, in 2015 the halal certified food and beverage market was estimated at $415 billion, according to Thomson Reuters’ latest State of the Global Islamic Economy Report. And as many Muslim countries rely on imported food, the U.S. has become a major exporter of halal products.
Whether halal food will become a relatively mainstream designation, like kosher food, remains to be seen.
