Provacuno announces an increase in the number of Spanish halal slaughterhouses

The number of Spanish slaughterhouses that received Halal certification has quadrupled in the last 10 years, according to a statement of Provacuno.
"More and more companies specialize in this field serve their Muslim customers, both in the domestic market and abroad.
In fact, the number of Halal slaughterhouses has quadrupled in the last decade and there are already about a hundred existing in Spain today. In Catalonia, without going any further, almost half of the beef producers are operating under the Halal method", mentioned Provacuno.
Halal businesses are also promoted by the Halal Institute of Spain, a body that succeeded to open new markets for these type of products.
There are substantial advantages for the companies that are certified as Halal compliant by Instituto Halal, as the Spanish halal certification body is recognized as an International Halal Accreditation Body by The Department for Islamic Development of Malaysia, JAKIM.
In 2017, the Spanish Halal Institute (Instituto Halal) has expanded its operations and signed an agreement with the Mexican government, which included the certification of 120 Mexican companies. All the companies certified as halal compliant by the institute can export their products to Malaysia, a market of 30 million people, more than 60% of whom are Muslims, according to the latest census. In 2017, Instituto Halal had already accredited 250 companies in Spain and abroad.
