There are 1.6 billion Muslims living around the world today making up 23.4% of the global population. If current trends continue, Muslims will make up 26.4% of the world's total projected population of 8.3 billion in 2030. The Muslim market spans an estimated US$2 trillion, making it one of the fastest growing consumer segments in the world. According to Reuters, the Halal food market alone—which accounts for 12% of global trade in agro-food products—is estimated at US$560 billion.

The unique Muslim lifestyle consumer drivers are centered on Halal food, family friendly environment, religious practices accommodation, and other areas. While this is a large travel segment-very few hotels, airlines and tourism destinations moved to meet demand.

Thus, in order to promote the Halal culture and streamline, unify and standardize Halal certification procedure and operation in India, Halal Council of India was established in 2012 in Mumbai, the financial, commercial and entertainment capital of India.

The certification of Halal Council of India is acceptable to the importers, suppliers and the Muslim consumers at large due to its high reputation and religious credibility and integrity. We are committed to achieve excellence in consultation, issuing Halal compliance certification, independent auditing and monitoring systems.
