Hong Kong Standards and Testing Centre
This project seeks to determine how the Hong Kong Standards and Testing Centre (STC) can facilitate halal certification in Hong Kong's food industry. We gathered information about Hong Kong's Muslim community and their need for halal food through semi-standardized interviews, online research, non-participant observations, and an online survey. We provide recommendations suggesting which sectors of the food industry are viable for this project, how to educate clients, and how to establish relations the Muslim community. Specifically, we suggest that the STC focuses on the pre-packaged food, meat, and fast food sectors of the food industry, establishes regular contact with Muslim representative organizations, and introduces the concept of halal to potential clients in the food industry.
