Malaysia HDC issues Certificates for 38 Thai halal products

Malaysia's Halal Development Corporation (HDC) has issued 'halal' (permissible by Islam) certificates for 38 products of Thai multinationals since being set up in September 2006, reported Malaysian news agency Bernama.

Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, S. K. Devamany said the products included fat and oil-based products and make-up items.

"HDC was established for the purpose of making Malaysia the world's halal hub," he said in reply to a question in Parliament in Kuala Lumpur Tuesday.

In April, HDC was given the mandate by the Malaysian cabinet to take over the role of the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) for the issuing of 'halal' certificates in the country.

HDC is also responsible for issuing international 'halal' certificates.
