Food hubs have received attention from different groups of people who have interests related to food and agriculture. These include the food manufacturers, suppliers, and also small and medium enterprises. Malaysia as a member of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) has aspirations to be the Halal Food Hub for the OIC member countries. This article aims to understand the determinants that influence the OIC food manufacturers' intention to accept Malaysia as a global Halal Hub. Three hundred manufacturers were interviewed and the data were analyzed descriptively through factor analysis.
