Australia gains greater access to Malaysia’s halal market


A new MoU is offering Australian exporters more access to Malaysia’s halal markets. “It includes intent to collaborate across food, meat, and non-foods sectors – with cooperation in education and training, knowledge sharing and investment elements,”  Sanjay Boothalingam, Agricultural Counselor to Malaysia and Brunei at the Australian High Commission, told Asian Agribiz. A key objective of the MoU is to raise awareness of the breadth and depth of halal among Australian businesses, focusing on meat and halal ingredients.
