Philippines: Market Brief on Halal Products

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   RP2023-0049

The Philippines is an emerging market for halal products due to its growing Muslim population. Additionally, the country is positioning itself as a halal food processing hub for export to other countries and regions with significant Muslim populations. In 2022, the Philippines imported $120 million worth of halal products, including dairy products, beef, poultry meat and products, glucose syrup, and animal fats. Notably, more than 40 percent of these imports originated in the United States. These factors present an opportunity for U.S. suppliers seeking to enter the lucrative global halal market.
