GEORGE TOWN, June 28 (Bernama) -- The implementation of the MS2400 standard

based on the Halalan-Toyyiban Assurance Pipeline System(HTAPS)is an ideal

approach towards efforts to provide a product that is safe, pure and nutritious,

said Halal Industry Development Corporation (HDC) Chief Executive Officer, Datuk

Seri Jamil Bidin.

He said implementation of the MS2400 series can also help do away with

concerns of the community over the safety and purity of products during the

process of transport, storage and retail.

"This standard attests to the principle of maintaining halal integrity

throughout the supply chain. It is also aimed at avoiding contamination should a

halal product be stored alongside non-halal products," he added.

He said this in his keynote address at the seminar on "Opportunities in

Halal Logistics and ASEAN Free Trade Alliances (FTAs)" here today.

His speech was read by the HDC Vice-President Dr Malik Musharaf.

The one-day seminar was organised by the Ministry of International Trade and

Industry (MITI) and the HDC with the theme, "Opportunities in Halal Logistics

and ASEAN Free Trade Agreement".

Jamil said a lot of business opportunities could also be created through

the implementation and use of the MS2400 series standard as a means of halal

logistics in the supply chain.

However, he added that there was a need to also develop skilled and

competent workers to fullfil the needs of companies which provide halal

logistics services.

"To realise the business opportunities, there is an urgent need to train the

talent needed for this dynamic sector, he said.

He said Malaysia is committed to becoming a global halal hub, and the first

to be established was the Selangor Halal Park in 2003.

"To date, we have nine accredited halal parks throughout the country and

which have attracted investments worth RM5.8 billion," he added.

On the seminar, Jamil said he hoped the resulting exchange of information

and discussions, would drive the economy through the use of a standard that is

acceptable in the halal supply chain.

"This will enable Malaysian companies to plan strategy and create a

meaningful presence in the halal global market," he added,
