'Vigo-48', 'Pik Ko' and 'Makprogres' are the first three Macedonian companies to be awarded with the Halal certificate. All of them are exporters of food products with already implemented Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) system.
Amir Sakic, Director of Bosnian Agency of Halal Quality Certification, says many companies connect Halal standards with the markets of contries with predominantly Muslim population.
"They forget that there are over five million consumers of Halal products only in our region, which is not a minor figure. On the other hand, our products also have access to European market, namely to 20 million potential consumers of such products," Sakic said Thursday in Skopje at the certificate awarding ceremony.
