Key findings and conclusion The future demand for Halal products is high and has a strong presence in developed and developing countries. To harmonize Halal system with others, all issues related to Halal production of food and agriculture are presented. Highly critical topics such as manure, pesticides, lubricant, and genetically modified product have been highlighted and their Halal status with regards to their nature, process, and composition have been discussed. Furthermore, Halal compatibility with good agricultural practices has been determined.
