The "halal logo" plays a very important role in certifying the authenticity of JAKIM certification on halal process on the canned food products sold in supermarkets. This is because the Muslim consumers would not be able to access the halal making process of these canned foods are actually complied with except to rely solely on the "halal logo" whenever it appear on the cover of the canned food products.

Can these procedures secure that the "halal process" has been observed before the logo was issued either by them of by other authorized body in issuing the "halal logo" to these canned food products. This research
will also survey various other "halal logo" available in Malaysian supermarkets.
