Referring to data from the State of the Global Islamic Report in 2020/2021, Indonesia ranks first as the largest market for halal food products in the world, worth IDR 2,046 trillion. Therefore, the food and beverage industry in Indonesia, with a majority Muslim market share, certainly considers halal certificates to be one of the important elements in a domestic product. The halal label is a priority by the majority of Indonesian consumers in the hope of getting a guarantee of a sense of calm and security while consuming food or drinks labeled from the MUI.
The reason is, this label not only examines what is halal or haram from a product, but also examines the manufacturing process from upstream to downstream which is guaranteed to be guaranteed and not contaminated. Jiwa Group also received a Halal Assurance System (HAS) which means that there is a halal management system in the company and also guaranteed production facilities.
