Review of Halal Food Standard PBD24: 2007 in Negara Brunei Darussalam towards Quality and Safety Food


The halal food industry has received a substantial increase in attention from local authorities in recent years, resulting in the creation of an organisation to oversee the sector, design and develop halal food standards to cater the growing demand of consumers, and ensure that halal food is produced in accordance with instructions in the Quran (‘Kulu Mimma fi al-Ard Halalan Thayyiban’). Based on this demand, Negara Brunei Darussalam, through the Religious Council, has developed a Halal food standard PBD24: 2007. This paper is an attempt to discuss, highlight and analyze the general guidelines, rules and policies of halal food production based on Halal food standard PBD24: 2007, and its contribution to global food quality and safety. It was found that Negara Brunei Darussalam owns a comprehensive standard and law to fulfil the need of local and international halal food industry.
