The Halal Industry, worth over 3 trillion dollars, is one of the most promising sub-sectors in the world today. With an estimated Muslim consumer of about 1.8 billion, making up to one fourth of the world's population, the demand for halal products and services is overwhelming. Also, with the expanding Muslim demographics, more industries are quickly picking up on the trend and tailoring their approach to reach this burgeoning market. However, Nigeria, with over 50% Muslim population is yet to get its claws into this growing industry.
