In todaya€™s globalized world, halal (meaning a€˜permissiblea€™ or a€˜lawfula€™) is about more than food. Politics, power and ethics all play a role in the halal industry in setting new standards for production, trade, consumption and regulation. The question of how modern halal markets are constituted is increasingly important and complex. Written from a unique interdisciplinary global perspective, this book demonstrates that as the market for halal products and services is expanding and standardizing, it is also fraught with political, social and economic contestation and difference. The discussion is illustrated by rich ethnographic case studies from a range of contexts, and consideration is given to both Muslim majority and minority societies. Halal Matters will be of interest to students and scholars working across the humanities and social sciences, including anthropology, sociology and religious studies.In the UK, Matrade has worked closely with the UKa#39;s major supermarket chain Tesco and the National Halal Food Group ... of hypermarkets and selected stores in locations with large Muslim populations (Fischer 2011; Lever and Miele 2012).
