UAE: Sharjah society backs Halal food event

Sharjah Cooperative Society (SCS), a provider of quality foodstuff at competitive prices, has teamed up with Expo Centre Sharjah for an upcoming international exhibition of halal-certified food products.

The first edition of Halal Food Middle East will be held at Expo Centre Sharjah from December 10 to 12 and will aim to tap into the $2.77 trillion international halal food industry.

The show, which is held under the patronage of Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, Ruler of Sharjah and Supreme Council Member, has the support of the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Federation of UAE Chambers of Commerce and Industry, apart from several leading retailers, food producers and dealers.

“Preparations are under way to make the inaugural Halal Food ME a highly successful trade show. We launched the show globally during the eighth Malaysia International Halal Showcase (Mihas) in Kuala Lumpur and we will promote it globally. We just finished a promotional tour of China and will now be heading to Thailand,” said Saif Mohammed Al Midfa, director-general of Expo Centre Sharjah.

“The support and participation of Sharjah Cooperative Society will add more credence and strengthen the value proposition of Halal Food ME.”

“Sharjah Cooperative Society has a vital role in providing Halal-certified food products to Sharjah and the Northern Emirates,” Al Midfa added.

Halal Food ME is positioned as the most comprehensive show of its kind in the region, featuring Shariah-compliant food and beverages, bakery and confectionaries, broth products and food ingredients.

The show will attract exporters and importers, supermarkets, food manufacturers, hotels, restaurants, cafes, catering companies and distributors, among others. – TradeArabia News Service
