The company has already developed an integrated livestock farming and beef supply process for the importation of livestock from Australia to Malaysia, with feedlots, slaughtering processing, packing and sale of “Halal” beef in Malaysia. Malaysia sets one of the highest, and cohesive, standards in Halal certification globally, thus enabling Grant Agri to take a central role in delivering the “Halal Hub” goal for beef in Malaysia.
Grant Agri provides complete cattle supply solutions, mitigating many risks associated with implementing a national beef strategy. It is able to guarantee supply of live cattle and this in-turn provides a continuity of beef supply dramatically reducing the reliance on beef imports to Malaysia.
With a reputation in superior breeding performance, disease free status, animal welfare standards, and newly legislated Export Supply Chain Assurance System (ESCAS), to ensure exports are conducted in accordance with internationally accepted World Organisation for Animal Health Standards (OIE) up to an including the point of slaughter, Australia sets the global benchmark for Livestock Export.
Grant Agri Group is a collective group of companies that provide long-term, demand driven, agricultural commodity supply chains to create food security for nations. It is a complete horizontal and vertical integration in Agriculture.
The Group provides a range of Australian and New Zealand commodities to the ASEAN region, from generic staple food produces to boutique, gourmet products.
Grant Agri has developed collaboration with Australia’s largest poultry operator to provide a long-term supply of turkey meat to Malaysia.
Muslim consumers have given particular attention to the foods they consumed, for the specific reason that it needs to be considered Barakah.
It has long been the goal of the Malaysian Government to establish Malaysia as a Global Halal Hub for the promotion, distribution and production of Halal products and services to the Muslim populations all over the world.
Since 1959 Malaysia has taken steps which have been regarded as an international pioneer in researching and developing Halal products. Malaysian Halal Certification for food and consumable goods are issued by the sole authority of the Islamic Development Department Malaysia (JAKIM) or States’ Islamic Religious Council, who are highly recognised and recommended in the Muslim market worldwide. Today, Malaysia remains the only country in the world who’s Halal Certification is issued by the Government, rather than by Islamic Associations.
The launching of the Malaysian Halal Standard MS1500:2004 demonstrates the Government’s commitment to Halal Compliance and Assurance. The Global Muslim market is extensive. It is estimated that some 2 billion consumers exist globally, yet only 6 million have access to true Halal products. Without proper planning of a strategic system, standards & procedures and good monitoring on practices had caused many Halal products that are sold do not meet the Halal requirements. Beef production is an obvious and profound example.
Beef that is declared lawful (Halal) should be subjected to certain rules and regulations to ensure blood and other impure elements are discharged out of the cattle body as much as possible. Slaughter must be conducted in a way that is least painful and most merciful to the animal.
However, it is not just the way cattle are slaughtered, the entire preparation of the animal, from birth to slaughter must be according to the principals of Halal. Cattle must be treated most compassionately from birth to slaughter, their feed must be Halal, they should be disease-free and cattle hygiene must be conforming for them to be Barakah.
