At the end of the day its all about Islam. And Islam is bigger than McDonald’s. Allahu akbar!
World’s biggest brand? Not McDonald’s but halal
Halim Saad, once named by Time Magazine as one of the upcoming leaders who would define the coming age, is speaking today at anÂ Auckland University Business School conferenceÂ about the halal investment opportunity for New Zealand.
“Of the seven billion people in the world, 900 million are undernourished,” he says.
“We need to produce more food and to grow that food we need land twice the size of France and we need more water. The only way we can do that is to have better yield and better farming practices. That is where New Zealand should come in.”
Many of those going without food are Muslims living in countries belonging to theÂ Organisation of Islamic CooperationÂ (OIC), a body consisting of 57 member states. Many countries in which Muslims live are not arable and can cannot produce food.
