Agro-export body drops ‘halal’ from meat manual

APEDA has dropped the word ‘halal’ from the red meat manual. Halal is a term used for consumables that are permitted under Islam. Several Islamic countries import only halal meat. The older version mentioned: “The animals are slaughtered strictly according to the Hahal method to meet the requirement of Islamic countries”. The new very reads: “The animals are slaughtered to the requirement of importing country/imported”. This comes after debates within a section of groups alleging that the use of Halal makes it mandatory for exporters to buy only Halal meat.
