HALAL is a cross-over brand that has demonstrated the ability to attract Muslims and Non-Muslims alike. While this may at first seem surprising, especially right now, that Islam means peace and roughly translatable as the “religion of human naturalness”.
So Halal is of course in harmony with basic human nature. We naturally like what is good, clean, hygienic, quality, safety, healthy, nutritious and wholesome.
For example, as National carrier, such as Saudi Airlines, Royal Brunei, Qatar, Oman, Pakistan, Malaysia Airlines etc. must fulfill the Halal requirements simply to ensure the safety, quality and cleanliness from an Islamic perspective.
"The primary commitment is to assure meals of the highest standards and to deliver quality inflight services that meets customer satisfaction," Hj. Rafek said. "In essence, the Halal, Hygiene, Quality and Safety of the food are the utmost importance and is consistent with HACCP, ISO and other quality and safety standards which are inline with industry best practices".
