Based on a preliminary survey, almost all street vendors around UNISBA believe that the processed products they sell are halal, even though the raw materials they use do not have halal certificates. This shows the lack of understanding and awareness of street vendors regarding the halal product. As one of the Islamic universities, Bandung Islamic University (UNISBA) is obliged to educate the general public and academic community about the importance of halal food. Therefore, socialization and training on halal awareness, halal guarantee system and halal certification are needed. The level of awareness of street vendors about the need to provide halal food was measured by distributing questionnaires before training and after training. The results of the training showed increased understanding and awareness of halal food. As a result, all trainees want to get a Halal Certificate. However, there are several obstacles in obtaining halal certificates, namely costs (68%), time (24%), and procedures (28%).
