TAIPEI -- Sun Moon Lake authorities unveiled a halal certification program for restaurants in the area on Tuesday, in a bid to attract more Muslim visitors to one of Taiwan's best known scenic spots.
There is currently only one restaurant certified to meet Islamic dietary laws in the mountainous area, according to the Sun Moon Lake National Scenic Area Administration.
Administrators are inviting local restaurateurs interested in obtaining halal certification to a workshop scheduled for July 1 at the lakeside Fleur de Chine Hotel.
Organized in cooperation with Taiwan's Chinese Muslim Association, the workshop will include an introduction to Muslim culture, Islamic dietary requirements and management guides for Muslim-friendly restaurants.
