AFTER a visit to the Bangsamoro Region’s laboratory, officials of the Davao del Norte State College said that the school will venture into the Halal industry.

DNSC executives, food technology students and faculty members recently visited the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao’s Ministry of Science and Technology in Cotabato City and the Philippine National Halal Lab and Science Center in Koronadal City to gain insight on Halal foods.

The school said that its constituents visited “to gain insights and perspectives on Halal Industry, Gender and Development Programs for Bangsamoro Women, and preservation of Bangsamoro Culture and Heritage.”

Muslims only consume Halal food or food prepared based on what is prescribed under the Islamic laws.

During the visit, DNSC officials and representatives of the Department of Science Technology in Region 12 also discussed the possibility of establishing a Halal Research Center at DNSC.

The BARMM will also help DNSC in building the Natural and Cultural Museums, the college said.
