BANDUNG-PT Biofarma to date has been exporting various types of vaccines to about 50 Islamic countries joined in the OIC. In total 130 countries have purchased the vaccine from Biofarma.
"In volume, Indonesia, China and India, the world's largest supplier of vaccines, up to 70 percent of world demand," said President Director of PT Biofarma Juliman, Saturday (13/1/2018).
Chairman of the House of Representatives Commission IX Yusuf Macan Efendi in a meeting in Biofarma again questioned related to the halalness of the vaccine made.
"So Saudi Arabia also buys from Biofarma, meaning they receive vaccines and guaranteed halal?" he said.
Getting that question Juliman reiterated if the vaccine production process is done through WHO supervision and also through BPOM.
"Obviously halal, especially since dozens of Islamic countries receive our vaccines well," he explained.
In fact, according to Juliman Saudi Arabia has ordered bulk purchase or raw material vaccine where they will try to produce their own vaccine.
"Material or bulk from Biofarma, meaning they recognize its halal," he asserted. Jo
