Abstract The purpose of this paper is to discuss the factors that influence the operations of the halal meat supply chain in the environment of a non-Muslim-majority country - Australia. Australia, a non-Muslim-majority country, is a major producer and exporter of halal meat to Muslim countries. This study is based on 31 interviews of various stakeholders involved in the operation of the halal meat supply chain. This study found that out of the ten factors identified as affecting the successful operations of the Australian halal meat supply chain (AHMSC), 'segregation' and 'people' are the most dominant factors. These factors have different levels of influence in the domestic and export markets. The study concludes that there is a need to streamline the current AHMSC operations, particularly with regard to the regulatory framework and governance structure, to further enhance Australia's reputation in the world's halal meat industry.
