  • What is HALAL?Open or Close

    What is the meaning of the word HALAL? Halal is an Arabic word meaning lawful or permitted. When we think of HALAL, many of us think of meat. We have seen all the HALAL signs on meat outlets and restaurants. In the food industry, the basic meaning of HALAL is that the animal was slaughtered as per Islamic law guidelines and therefore is safe for Muslims to consume. By official definition, halal foods are those that are:

     

    1). Free from any component that Muslims are prohibited from consuming according to Islamic law (Shariah).

    2). Processed, made, produced, manufactured and/or stored using utensils, equipment and/or machinery that have been cleansed according to Islamic law.

     

    Alcoholic drinks & intoxicants and any unlawful products are NOT considered HALAL. BUT HALAL IS NOT JUST ABOUT FOOD. It is a lifestyle for a Muslim. Every Muslim would like the assurance that the food they eat, the cosmetics they use, the airline and hotel they use, the holiday destination, the banking, insurance, pension services among others, adhere to the religious guidelines. HALAL therefore promotes a healthy, ethical, fair and just way of life in all aspects including family, societal, business interactions and transactions. Anyone would be attracted to these values. They transcend religion.

    The HALAL TRADE EXPO KENYA was first held in 2016. The event was the first in Kenya and the region and brought together HALAL businesses from all sectors. Due to the overwhelming success, the HALAL TRADE EXPO KENYA will hold the third event this year from the 23rd to 25th August 2019.

  • Why the HALAL TRADE EXPO?Open or Close

    The number of Muslims around the world is projected to increase rapidly in the decades ahead, growing from about 1.6 billion in 2010 to nearly 2.8 billion in 2050. Muslims are expected to grow twice as fast as the overall global population.

     

    The Muslim population in Kenya is approximately 9.7 to 11.1 percent of the entire population, or approximately 4.3 million people.

     

    It is for this reason that the theme for the HALAL TRADE EXPO KENYA 2019 is the ‘UNTAPPED GROWING ECONOMY’.

     

    There is an untapped emerging Muslim population that is demanding a HALAL lifestyle.

     

    The HALAL TRADE EXPO KENYA provides a platform to showcase emerging HALAL products and services in Kenya and the region.

     

    Exhibitors will get an opportunity to showcase and demonstrate their latest HALAL products and services, meet with industry partners and customers, discuss recent market trends and opportunities in the HALAL industry.

     

    The HALAL TRADE EXPO KENYA will be a ‘one stop shop’ for the Muslim consumer and the Non-Muslim consumer who prefers ethical and fair business.
