Pakistan Becomes 19th Largest Exporter of Halal Food

KARACHI (Daily Dunya) – A recent study by Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry states that Pakistan’s meat industry is growing at annual rate of 27pc.

In 2003, the trade volume of halal food was $14 million which had piled up to $244 million in 2015 with 708,968 tons of meat exported. The above mentioned stats make Pakistan 19th largest exporter of meat in the world.
