Abstract

Purpose

Halal supply chain management (HSCM) is an emerging business and research area; there is a need to motivate researchers towards exploring the links between HSCM and sustainable performance of the organisation. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to develop a conceptual framework in order to link the HSCM with sustainable performance.

Design/methodology/approach

This review based paper identifies eleven critical factors for effective management of the Halal supply chain (HSC) and provides a conceptual framework for an HSCM after due consultative inputs from experts. The exploratory paper tries to integrate success measures of HSCM through integrity, process quality and customer satisfaction to sustainable performance measures.

Findings

Halal label is considered just like a kosher label or a green label or an organic label, which provides confidence to consumers on the Halal aspect of products and services. Some part of the society thinks that Halal products carry a higher value; therefore, the industry wants to identify if HSCM is sustainable. The same is measured comprehensively through environmental performance, social performance and economic performance. Animal welfare, fair trade and perceived benefits, better quality, wholesome with ethical practices help in sustainable development.

Originality/value

This paper tries to contribute to the research of HSCM with sustainable performance measures being embedded in the system. The model, along with researchers, may also help managers of firms dealing with Halal products in understanding how much sustainable their organisation is. This research is from a non-Islamic, democratic country which is multicultural and has large numbers of Halal consumers.
