It has been a very tough year for Malaysian businesses. The unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic has caused many entrepreneurs to rethink their business strategy to adapt to the constantly changing business environment just to stay afloat.
To help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) bounce back from the pandemic impacts, Halal Street UK, a proud Malaysian owned e-marketplace and the largest online store that sells Malaysian halal products to the United Kingdom (UK) and Europe at large, on Thursday launched its groundbreaking business-to-business (B2B) eCommerce platform, HalalExtra.com.
The platform offers an innovative and trusted way for Malaysian businesses to source and market their certified halal products efficiently at the same time to meet the demands of Muslims in the UK and Europe.
Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Halal Street UK, Simon Suresh said with an increasing number of local businesses have gone digital at the same time online shopping has become the new norm worldwide, it is a great opportunity for these entrepreneurs to export their halal products to overseas to meet the high demand there.
“The halal industry has now expanded beyond the food sector and with the substantial growth in the number of Muslim consumers, as well as the increasing demand from the non-Muslim population, is driving the global halal market at an exponential rate,” Suresh said.
