States Halal Parks
As a pioneer in promoting halal food globally, Malaysia’s locally developed halal certification serves as an example for other nations and has been commended by the United Nations as a model system. Currently, halal products certified in Malaysia run the gamut from processed chicken and beef products to ice cream, chocolate and food supplements. This is in line with the nation’s aim of being the regional hub for halal food products.

– Pulau Indah in Selangor
– Pedas Halal Park in Negeri Sembilan
– Serkam Pantai in Melaka
– Paya Pahlawan in Kedah
– Pantai Remis in Perak
– Gambang in Pahang
