Halal sector increasingly important post-Brexit

Halal meat will become increasingly important for the sheep industry post-Brexit, according to Abdalhamid Evans, strategist at halal consultancy Imarat Consulting.

Speaking at the AHDB Beef and Lamb Halal Seminar in Stratford-upon-Avon, Mr Evans said the UK needed to compete in Islamic markets after leaving the EU.

“If we want to be open for business with the rest of the world, a lot of the rest of the world is Muslim,” he said.

“Muslims are the only major religious group projected to grow faster than the world’s population as a whole. The Islamic market is bigger than China.”

“Food is just one element. There are 1.6 billion muslims,” he said.


He encouraged the sector to think more broadly about opportunities from other sectors for the food industry.

“If you look at travel, all travellers need to eat.”
