Regulation of kosher and halal food
|Regulation of kosher and halal food
|This project explores the governmental and non-governmental regulation of halal and kosher foods. Which actors are involved in kosher and halal food regulation? What is the division of roles between state actors, the food industry, certification agencies and religious authorities in these regulatory arrangements?
The Netherlands, like other Western countries, is a growing market for halal food products, that is, food products that comply with Islamic food laws. Halal food is becoming more visible as Dutch supermarkets, hospitals and schools decide to include halal food in their supply. The increased visibility of halal food leaded to public discussion. The project involves a comparative analyse between the Netherlands and the United States.
