Abstract

Food delivery services are popular and have become a necessity among Malaysians, especially during the pandemic Covid-19. Nevertheless, there are several issues faced by food delivery services primarily related to halal status and food hygiene. Using qualitative research methodology, this study attempts to identify issues in the scope of halal food delivery and its integrity. The findings showed that there are notable issues related to the food industry and delivery services that could be overcome by adhering to the control procedures issued by the National Security Council (MKN) and Islamic principles under the purview of Maqasid Shariah.
