The term ‘halal’ is used to label those meat products that are allowed for consumption under Islamism. Eg: meat that is slaughtered in a certain way is labelled as ‘hahal certified’. Certain Islamic countries import only halal certified meat products. Recently, the APEDA (Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority) removed the term from its ‘Red Meat Manual’. The manual now simply requires the animals to be slaughtered according to requirements of the importing country.
