INDONESIA: New Industrial Cluster Kicks-off Country’s Halal Charm Offensive

A halal-focussed industrial cluster is set to be established in the Batamindo Industrial Park on Batam Island (Riau Islands Province), set 60 km to the south of the Indonesia-Singapore border. One of three halal clusters to be piloted in the country, the 18-hecatre project is largely expected to attract food/beverage, pharmaceutical and cosmetics manufacturers. The remaining two halal projects will be developed on Java, Indonesia’s most populous island, with details of the exact sites yet to be released.

Overall, the projects are intended to help Indonesia build its share of the global halal market, which currently serves more than 1.9 billion Muslim consumers across the world. In line with this, the country is to launch an online halal certification service later this year, while also unveiling a series of incentives for would-be halal investors.
