Karangasem Bali is an area with a high level of non-Muslim majority. It was recorded that 557,277 residents of Karangasem embraced Hinduism and 20,673 embraced Islam. With this population, the Muslim community feels troubled when looking for halal products. This study aims to explore the Urgency of Halal Food in Muslim minority areas. The technique used by researchers is research that has descriptive characteristics using a qualitative approach. The descriptive method has a goal as a solution to solve a problem systematically and factually related to existing facts or phenomena. The results of this study show that the Muslim community of Karangasem Bali has made efforts to prioritize halal products for daily consumption. Regarding the availability of halal-certified products in the Karangasem area, Bali is very rare. Even though there are several stalls or food that have been certified halal, the owner of the shop or food product is from a non-Muslim resident. The interest of the Muslim community to become applicants for halal certificates is minimal. The Karangasem Bali government is maximizing socialization to support halal products produced by Muslim business actors. People are more selective in looking for halal products.
