Dr Wilson aims to share his thoughts and findings concerning the management issues concerning the Industrialization and Operationalization of Halal commodities, linked to consumption and consumerism.

Halal in the current marketplace is demonstrating tendencies towards a reliance on being product driven - where, product quality and compliance drives the atomization and judging of ingredients. However, Dr Wilson raises the question whether commercial Halal practices should be more people-driven and people-centric?

Furthermore, Dr Wilson finds that three arguments are usually presented to justify the imperative for operationalizing Halal business models, which are: an Economic argument; Consumer-based perspective; and Geopolitical imperative.

Nevertheless, within these there still remain gaps of understanding and further opportunities, which will be discussed. A focus of Dr Wilson’s talk is to encourage new conceptual arguments of relevance and practical use when creating Halal branded commodities, with additional consideration given to the Japanese experience.
