DEFINITION UNDER TRADE DESCRIPTION ACT
• Apart from this, the 'Halal' definition is also described under the Trade Description Act (APD) 1972. • According to the Trade Description Order (Use of Expression Halal) 1975, the 'Halal' definition covers things not made of, or containing any part or substance from animals which are forbidden to be consumed by Muslims, according to Islamic laws. • It also means that anything Halal should not contain any substances that are declared as filth according to Islamic Laws. • At the same time it is not prepared, processed or manufactured using equipment which are not free from filthy substances as directed by Islamic Laws

Halal Vaccine

...Halal Vaccine for Hajj Pilgrims Even before few years, the fully Halal meningitis vaccine was a dream for the Muslim world but now it’s a reality. The long waited Halal meningitis vaccine named ‘Menveo’ is now available worldwide. Many Muslim countries including the Saudi Arabia has approved it and many have instructed to replace the previously used one with this Halal vaccine. According to the available information meningitis vaccine earlier produced, contained materials of bovine or porcine origin. Due to this reason the Muslims had been complaining against those vaccines and pressuring for producing completely Halal vaccine from Halal ingredients. Due to this demand from the Muslim world an ‘apparently Halal’ vaccine was produced named Mencevax. It is alleged that Mencevex even used porcine ingredients at manufacturing stage but the finished product could be made porcine free with the blessings of latest scientific technologies. Nevertheless to say that Bangladesh is still using this ‘apparently halal’ vaccine though completely halal vaccine is available in the market. However, the government is under pressure to use halal vaccine especially for the hajj pilgrims.

...A Study on Purchase Pattern of Cosmetics among Consumers in Kerala Dr. Vinith Kumar Nair* Dr. Prakash Pillai R* Introduction Understanding behaviour of consumers is a key to the success of business organizations. Marketing personnel are constantly analyzing the patterns of buying behaviour and purchase decisions to predict the future trends. Consumer behaviour can be explained as the analysis of how, when, what and why people buy. Consumer behavior can be understood as: "The decision process and physical activity individuals engage in when evaluating, acquiring, using, or disposing of goods and services." (Loudon and Della Bitta, 1980). Nowadays, this phenomenon, can also be illustrated in the following way: "activities people undertake when obtaining, consuming, and disposing of products and services" (Blakwell, Minard and Engel, 2001). A study by Voss and Parasuraman (2003) suggests that the purchase preference is primarily determined by price than quality during pre-purchase evaluation. Given explicit quality information, price had no effect on pre-purchase or post-consumption quality perceptions. Instead, post consumption quality evaluations had a favorable impact on price evaluations. Another study by Chernev (1997) analyzed the effect of common features on brand choice and the moderating role of attribute importance. It is argued that when brand attributes differ in importance, with the best value on the most important attribute, thus further polarizing brands’ choice......

In 2008, Gallup conducted a poll across 143 countries and territories asking whether religion was an important part of daily life. Those who said religion is important in their daily lives were 82%. Several authors agree that consumers evaluate a brand through a wide variety of perceptual judgments; for example its reliability, or how comfortable they feel with it, or whether it is better than some other brand. Recent research has demonstrated that the characteristics of brand names......

Halal Foods

...Harris Halal foods are foods that muslims are allowed to eat under the Islamic Shari’ah. The term halal means permitted or allowed. Halal specifies both which foods are allowed, as well as how it must be prepared. Halal food must not be prepared, processed, transported, or stored using facilities which have been previously used for non halal foods. Halal foods must be slaughtered by a muslim under very specific procedures. If a food does not meet the many halal criteria, it is considered haram, or not permitted or allowed to be consumed. The term mashbooh, on the other hand, is used for foods that are considered doubtful or questionable to consume. Halal is a global marketing issue in the world of food for many reasons. One issue deals with ingredients lists found on food labels. Companies are not required to list everything they use to make their foods, therefore some of the ingredients may be haram, without consumers having any way of knowing. About one fourth of the world population is muslim. In the United States, muslims have approximately $12 billion of buying power. They want to go out with non muslim friends and be able to eat like everyone else. Due to this, some companies went completely, or partially halal. Some of these companies include McDonalds, Taco Bell, KFC, Organic Valley, Nestle, Dominos, and Campbell’s. McDonalds serves as an excellent example of how halal foods can be a global marketing issue. They were serving non halal meat as halal,......

...Cosmetics’ Effect on College Girls Today, when walking around the college campus, you will have a hard time finding a college girl without any makeup. Many college girls show off their “beauty” with a magical mask—makeup. Under the decoration of cosmetics, each of them hides their physical flaws very successfully, hiding their natural beauty as well. Since cosmetics give them confidence, they do not want to look at the health problem that it causes. And they are absolutely willing to spend a lot of their time applying makeup and a good portion of their money buying makeup. As a result, their grades become lower while they become addicted to cosmetics, and they feel anxious and uncomfortable to see themselves when they remove their masks. Despite the positive effect that makeup has on beauty, restraining from using cosmetics can help college girls attain a more successful college life. Media always has a huge effect on the way people think. In many fashion magazines, TV shows or advertisements, we can see most women wear makeup such as mascara, lipsticks, eye shadow, eye liners, and foundation. They tell us how they feel confident under the cosmetic condition. Eventually, they affect people’s perception of female’s beauty—if women want to show their attractiveness, they must wear makeup. Many college girls like fashion. Through the media, the images of those beautiful women plant an inaccurate message in college girls’ minds: cosmetics can make them as attractive as those......

...HALAL MARKETS IN CHINA: POTENTIALS AND CHALLENGES Isa Ma1 ABSTRACT This paper aimed to evaluate Halal markets in China including Halal market potentials and challenges in China through analysis of Chinese Muslim populations (market size), purchasing powers, geographic locations (market places), and Chinese Muslim living situations in China (challenges). This paper also combated some problems relating to Halal markets in China and provided some basic information about Chinese Muslims and on Halal markets in China for potential Halal marketers. Keywords: Chinese Muslims and Halal markets in China 1. INTRODUCTION As companies head towards a global market that deals with people from many different cultural backgrounds, it has become essential for marketers to understand culture’s influence on consumer behaviours. The recognition of the importance of culture on consumer behaviours has led to an increasing amount of research across cultures (Sojka and Tansuhaj 1995). More significantly, many studies have succeeded in establishing links between culture and consumer behaviours (McCracken 1986). As the cultural variables and differences increase, the number of communication misunderstandings also increase. Barnlund (1989) suggests that a way to approach cultural understanding is to undertake a careful description of how people relate to one another in search of the norms that regulate social acts or behaviours. The most powerful elements of cultures are those......
