Pakistani Halal Food, which also includes poultry products, has vast export potential in European and other Western countries, reports Daily Times of Pakistan.

The exports can be enhanced manifold in future, provided the sector receives official patronage.

The private sector exporters of halal food said through adopting modern techniques and improving sanitary certification procedures, halal food exports could fetch more than US$100 million in the next two years.

CEO of K&Ns, Khalil Sattar, talking to media representatives at the Pakistan Expo 2011 in Karachi claimed Pakistani foods were quite capable to cater global demand of halal food and in this regard, he specially cited European Union and Gulf Cooperative countries (GCC) where increasing demand for Pakistani value-added chicken products could help fetch substantial foreign currency to the national exchequer.

He added Pakistani poultry farmers were observing an increasing interest for halal products in North America as well.
