A new committee will be formed to establish guidelines of the Muslim World League on Halal slaughter and food production.

The responsibilities of the new committee will include the development and implementation of educational programmes for manufacturers on the approved guidelines for Halal slaughter and processing.

Delegates at the Global Halal and Islamic Business Forum unanimously endorsed recommendations from the Gulf Standards Authority regarding global Halal industry guidelines.

A statement, stated formally by Khaled Al Zamoul from the Kuwait Municipality, confirmed a committee will be created in the near future.

Recommendations were also made to establish centralised monitoring offices across the globe, which would work alongside recognised Islamic centres to conform to the Halal protocols for all foodstuffs to be imported into the GCC region.

Attendees at the Forum, which ran alongside the Halal World Expo in Abu Dhabi included Khalid Sharif Awadi from Dubai Municipality and renowned UAE food safety consultant Dr Amin Mohamed Yousef.
