INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Indonesia has a myriad of potential to realize dreams into the basis of world halal products. First, the largest Muslim population in the world, reaching 209.1 million.
This is a big market in ensuring the absorption of halal products, which should bring investment into the country.
Second, from raw material factors, especially for the food, beverage and other products that use material from agricultural and plantation commodities.
The amount is covered with competitive quality. The third factor is Indonesia has an official institution that is solid and agile in carrying out the process of halal process certification.
Even though they have all the supporting resources. Indonesia has not been counted as a global halal product producer. So far we have not only become a market.
Ironically, it is precisely countries with a small Muslim population who are the king of halal products. Call it like Thailand, which only has a percentage of Muslim population of 5%.
Then South Korea, the king of halal cosmetic products, is also the world's largest Australian halal meat exporter. While China appeared to be the king of halal textiles.
One of Indonesia's weaknesses is believed to be due to the absence of a halal base or production center.
While these countries, even though the small Muslim population has built an industrial area that is the center of halal production. Even so, we are not too late to catch up.
The big expectation relies on the breakthrough of PT Modern Industrial Estate that took the initiative to develop halal clusters in the Modern Cikande industrial area in Serang, Banten.
As of September 2018, the subsidiary of PT Modernland Realty Tbk began marketing the Halal Valley's first phase project of 150 ha from three stages of development with a total land area of 500 ha.
Hopefully this initiative will become an example of other industrial areas, so that it has a big impact in realizing Indonesia's vision to become a global halal production base.
