Event Details

 

The 19th International Halal Food Conference is featuring the theme,

"THE CHANGING PARADIGM IN HALAL CERTIFICATION"

 

The Changing Paradigm in Halal Certification examines the evolution of halal certification and the impact on the halal economy. Decades ago, halal certification was being offered by individuals offering limited services. Many exporters even certified themselves (self-certification). Later, importers began approving specific plants (meat, poulry, egg, dairy). This was followed by the importing countries recognizing specific halal certification bodies (HCBs). We are now witnessing countries and regions requiring HCBs to be accredited for their certificates to be accepted. Accreditation requires developing documented standard operating procedures (SOPs) including procedures for correcting noncompliance, similar to ISO accreditation.

The conference brings the accreditation organizations, the recognition bodies, and the industry together to discuss implementation of this quality system. Come join the conversation that will develop a robust halal certification and compliance system and be prepared for the future of the halal economy.

You will want to attend this conference if you are a manufacturer, marketer, distributor, importer, exporter, regulator, educator, and are currently a part of the halal economy or are evaluating the benefits of the halal economy for your business.
