Russia to export halal meat to Arabian Gulf

Russia to export halal meat: Russia’s food watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor and the Council of Muftis in Russia have joined forces to open up the export of halal meat to states on the Arabian Gulf, with chicken exports to Qatar and the UAE likely to pave the way. “As with other Arab countries, Qatar in interested in us as a grain supplier,” Rosselkhoznadzor’s Deputy Head Alexey Alekseenko said this week, “… and they are, of course, interested in  products that pass halal [quality] control and  …conform to Sharia law. We have a lot of such products. Russia is home to 23 million Muslims, and has therefore, the ability and experience to certify halal products.”
