Duopharma Biotech Bhd is collaborating with Holistics Lab Sdn Bhd via MyHalalGig – a halal managerial platform and digital repository system developed by Holistics Lab.
The platform is to assist halal-industry players in designing, developing, and monitoring their halal assurance system as well as assisting in managing halal-related documents, and submission of applications to the Malaysian authorities.
To mark the collaboration, a document exchange ceremony was held recently, in conjunction with the Malaysia International Halal Showcase (MIHAS 2023) held from Sept 12 to 15 in Kuala Lumpur.
Through the implementation of the MyHalalGig platform at Duopharma Biotech, the company is able to overcome challenges in the halal documentation process related to time and complexity, thus reducing costs and paperwork; improving productivity, audit preparedness and ease of monitoring through centralised data management and comprehensive dashboards.
Commenting on the partnership, Leonard Ariff Abdul Shatar, Duopharma Biotech’s group managing director, said: “As a leading halal pharmaceuticals company, Duopharma Biotech is committed to improving our productivity, efficiency, and innovation capacity through the implementation of the latest
4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies to further expand our offerings to customers.”
“The MyHalalGig platform is an excellent fit to help us maximise productivity while optimising the cost of management and operations through digitalisation.”
He added that MyHalalGig not only helped Duopharma Biotech to compile, and organise all halal-related documentation securely, but its intelligent connected
system is also able to provide updates on new requirements from the Malaysian Islamic Development Department on halal certification.
