The Halal Industry

The Halal Industry is growing very rapidly in the United States. The International Halal Accreditation Forum (IHAF) has reported that an industry watch estimates U.S. $20 billion worth of sales in the halal food market alone. This growth within the halal industry in the United States is in due part to the increased amount of Islamic conversions happening within America, as well as Muslim migrants coming to settle in the United States.  “Whole Foods Market Inc., which has been among the pioneers, ranks halal among its fastest-growing categories, with double-digit sales growth in each of the last five years. It’s been running Ramadan promotions since 2011″ according to the Bloomberg report.
