As a global food company, Mondelēz International (MDLZ) produces safe and quality products in accordance with global food safety standards and is committed to meeting the needs and preferences of consumers worldwide, which can vary from market to market. We cater to the specific needs by considering various factors, including religious food requirements like Halal.
Today, Halal is a growing market force. According to the Global Islamic Economic Report, the Halal food market accounts for 16 percent of the entire global food industry, with the worldwide spending on Halal food and lifestyle products expected to reach USD3.7 trillion by 2019.
Our priority is to ensure that we are able to deliver products that everyone can enjoy. MDLZ will continue to produce a wide range of Halal snacks, including chocolate and confectionery, biscuits and salty snacks for markets where there is a demand for Halal. We understand that Halal is important to our consumers. Where it is a mandatory legal requirement in some Muslim majority markets, our products can be certified and marked as Halal. We are also working alongside authorities and certification bodies in the respective markets to ensure our products meet the highest standard of compliance and ethical quality.
