Halal Certified Colouring Solutions
In many markets, cultural diversity and market trends, such as growing consumer awareness, have an immediate and direct impact on the food and drink industry. In that context, the market for Halal certified products is growing rapidly. In 2014, the Dubai Chamber of Commerce predicted the international Halal food and drinks market to be worth $1.6 trillion by 2018, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.9%. This means it has a sizeable share of the total international food and drink sales revenue.*

When it comes to segments in Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, Halal product claims are most prevalent in baked goods, snacks, sauces, and seasonings. In Europe, processed fish, meat, egg products, snacks, and breakfast cereals declare the most Halal product claims. Other segments in which Halal claims can be observed in new products are sauces & seasonings, meals, bakery and chocolate confectionery. Taking a closer look at the difference within the European markets, the UK and France have a notable number of new products with Halal claims. In Turkey, Germany, and Spain a significant year-on-year rise of number of products with Halal claim can be observed. To meet the growing demand for Halal certified products, Sensient Food Colors works with Halal Control accreditation standards from its manufacturing base near Hamburg, Germany. Based upon the strict and professional certification on the basis of the high standards of Malaysia (Malaysian Halal Standards MS 1500:2009), it gives our customers and their consumers the reassurance they need.
