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.

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.
