Abstract: The research investigates the halal food supply chain (HFSC) requirements by the Islam religion, the effect of these requirements on the quality attributes of the meat through the supply chain and their alignment with non-halal meat quality attributes. The trigger for this study is due to growing concern on HFSC standards in Arabic region and the policies are often infancy. The research opens the door of the UAE halal food industry to position as hub in the Arabic region and thereby to compete across the world by its enhanced performance and established quality control. In this research, an in-depth industry review and SWOT analysis are conducted to assess the UAE-HFSCs competitive strategy and hence to develop managerial implications that could be used by practitioners.
