The demand for halal food by-products in the GCC region is mainly driven by many Muslims who follow Islamic Sariah regulations as part of their religious beliefs. Furthermore, the demand is being driven by the growing number of stringent regulatory frameworks that include required halal labeling and certification standards for food and drinks.

Furthermore, increased knowledge of food safety, hygiene, and trustworthiness afforded by halal food items, particularly among non-Muslims, is boosting the industry across the Gulf Cooperation Council. In addition, a significant increase in the food retail sector and the increasing availability of halal food and beverages across various distribution channels are also driving market expansion.
