Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) - Halal Certification

In an effort to pull in more Muslim tourists, Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) is seeking certification from the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) to become the world’s first halal-certified train service by Jan 2016.

“We are determined to make this happen because if everything goes as planned, the recognition as the world’s first halal-certified train service would automatically boost the country’s tourism industry.” said KTMB President Lieutenant-Colonel (Rtd) Sarbini Tijan in a New Straits Times news report.

“Muslim tourists from around the globe would feel confident in coming to the country as they know that when they travel long distance using KTMB’s Electric Train Service (ETS), they can rest assured that the food served is halal-certified.” he added.
