Small Medium Enterprise (SME) are an economic sector that provides significant macro-level contributions. Based on data from the Central Statistics Agency in 2021, the number of UMK in the food and beverage category alone reached over 1.5 million business entities. This figure is still smaller compared to the government’s report, which states that there are around 13.5 million UMK obligated to obtain halal certification.
Since the issuance of the Republic of Indonesia Law No. 33 of 2014 concerning Halal Product Assurance, halal certification has become a requirement for UMK. However, currently, halal certification is not only necessary to comply with Indonesian government regulations. With the growth of the global halal market and the increasing trend of halal tourism, Halal Certification undoubtedly supports the development of UMK, enabling them to compete at the national and international levels.
