Morocco: Halal Exhibition to be held in Meknes

For the first time, Morocco will hold an international Halal food exhibition entirely dedicated to the export market. Halal food producers will be brought together under one roof, with exhibitors from the manufacturing sector, including Halal ingredients right through to the finished products on display. It will be held in the historic city Meknès, in Morocco, 13-15 of September 2012.

The launching of this Halal trade event was motivated by major official decisions made during the Halal labeling conference at the last “France-Maghreb Convention 2011” under the High Patronage of His Majesty The King Mohamed VI.

It was decided an official Halal Label is going to be established in Morocco allowing food industry professionals (both manufacturers and retailers) to provide millions of consumers the reassurance of genuine Halal certified products.

Pioneering countries like Turkey, Malaysia, France or Brunei… will be invited to give feedback on their Halal labeling experience at the conference being held during the exhibition, in order to highlight the necessity of setting up an official Halal label and Halal certification organization.

Moroccan authorities, as well as concerned institutions, will be attending to discuss and debate on the current government directives, and also to share their different experiences regarding Halal issues with all the foreign participants.

The Kingdom of Morocco is today an economic hub which sits at a crossroads between Europe, Africa and the Middle East. This event will produce major opportunities for local and foreign companies to meet as business partners in order to develop their export activity, particularly in the Halal food industry.

This strategic position is the reason why the Expo Halal International organization committee designated Morocco as the most appropriate place to launch an international exhibition such as this.
