Abstract

Indonesia, as the biggest Muslim country, has not been played a significant role in halal food exports, as indicated by its position in halal food exports. Indonesian’s halal food industry has not reached the top 10 countries that include Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Brazil, Oman, Jordan, Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Pakistan, Sudan, and Qatar. Nowadays, Indonesia is the biggest country in halal food import with a value of 170 billion USD or equal to Rp.2.465 billion (at exchange rate Rp. 14.500). The data showed that Indonesia is in the first rank of the 10 countries with the largest amount of halal food expenditure in the world. This is so unfortunate for Indonesian, which has the largest Muslim population in the world. Using library research, this paper will explore the halal export policy in Indonesia, hoping to bring the competitiveness of the country’s halal foods in the international market. This research found that Indonesia’s halal food exports today have been able to grow only in some countries with similar cultures. Some aspects that influence halal food export policy in Indonesia are lack of legal implementation in halal foods, complicated policy bureaucracy, minimal labeling of halal foods for the producers. The research result also suggested that Indonesia needs a commitment to rearrange a new resolution model of halal food export policy in forms of deregulation and de-bureaucratization.
