How did it started?

In the late 1990s, there were not many Halal restaurants in Singapore. Moreover, many non-Muslims are not familiar with Halal requirements. Most of the restaurants offer "No Pork, No Lard" which does not sufficiently meet Halal requirements.

Halal Tag started from a small list of restaurants saved in text document. It was shared among non-Muslim colleagues who were tasked to look for restaurants to celebrate certain occasions such as staff promotions, birthday celebration etc. Although I was the only Muslim in the department, my colleagues were respectful of my Halal dietary requirements. They would usually ask me for a list of Halal restaurants. Therefore, it was convenient for me to keep a list of Halal restaurants for these occasions.

As time progresses, there were more requests and more Halal options. That's when we decided to publish the list on the company Intranet in early 2000 and then Internet in late 2000. Halal Tag has sinced upgraded from being a humble blog to a searchable directory. Hope, this helps our Muslim community to easily find Halal food as well as support our Muslim business and businesses supporting Halal requirement to flourish.
