IFANCA at Conference in Amsterdam…

Amsterdam, March 2006 The Muslim community in Europe is an estimated 15 million (3% of the European population), and catering to their needs is a new market—Halal food. It’s no wonder then that The Islamic Food Council of Europe organized The 2nd International Halal Food Conference, March 2006, in Amsterdam. The theme was Halal Certification on Global Trade. The conference featured guest speakers, including IFANCA representatives, from several Muslim countries and Europe. Under review were important issues such as import regulations, Halal certification programs and how they benefit domestic and international markets in a global environment. The conference was tailored for food industry professionals, academicians, students, government agencies and exporters.
