Ensuring that food is Halal is an important issue in Indonesia, the world’s
most populous Muslim country. However, the intricacies inherent across the
global food supply chain can make guaranteeing Halal- food products a
significant challenge. PerkinElmer’s porcine detection kits provide
Halal-certifying agencies, contract laboratories and food manufacturers with a
screening capability providing on-the-spot rapid characterization of food
products. Through the distribution of PerkinElmer’s porcine detection kits,
the LPPOM MUI organization is equipped with the ability to make it easier,
quicker and more cost effective to provide consumers with the confidence in
the integrity and authenticity of food products to ensure that they are Halal.

Designed for the fast detection of porcine meat traces, PerkinElmer’s porcine
detection kits can provide a positive or negative result for the presence of
porcine biomarkers in less than 15 minutes. Non-technical users are able to
conduct the testing through a simple interface and minimal sample preparation.
With detection limits of 0.5% for processed meat to 0.05% for raw meat,
manufacturers now have an effective rapid screening tool for testing incoming
raw ingredients to better ensure Halal integrity of final food products.

“The LPPOM MUI is an extremely respected body in Indonesia and their adoption
of our porcine detection kit is a significant endorsement of the quality and
reliability that our Halal food screening solution provides,” said Boon-Chun
Tan, South Asia Pacific Environmental Marketing Director, PerkinElmer. “We
look forward to helping food processors purchasing porcine-free ingredients
with utmost confidence in their Halal products while providing consumers in
Indonesia with better peace of mind that the food that they are consuming is
porcine-free.”

The worldwide market for Halal food products represents $635 billion ($US) of
the $4 trillion spent annually on food supplies worldwide, with Asian
countries accounting for over 60% of that expenditure. Halal food testing
represents a key part of this important market.
