Detailed process and requirements were shared from procuring materials and services, to transforming them into intermediate goods and final products, and deliver them through a distribution system. The Halal supply chain was achieved with compliance with the Shariah – Islamic principles through adopting halal and toyyiban to ensure halal integrity of food supply chain. The seminar, the first to introduce the principles and practices of Halal supply chain in Hong Kong, was conducted with great success.
