Key Market Trends

Surge in Demand for Halal Certified Products

The halal market has witnessed a universal shift in the demand and supply chains of halal food products. They are increasingly made available in Western-style grocery stores, including supermarkets and hypermarket chains, which have been getting a strong presence in Brazil, where its economy has been emerging forward. In South America, supermarkets and food producers have been starting to reach out to Muslim and non-Muslim consumers by offering a wider selection of halal food products.
