Introducing with pleasure 

Initial Anuga Global
Halal Conference

The ANUGA Global Halal Conference 2023 is proudly announced. ANUGA offers a distinctive forum for discussing the most recent trends and advancements in the halal market as the largest food and beverage show in the world. Worldwide demand for halal-certified goods and services is rising as the halal sector expands quickly. With this conference, we hope to bring together professionals from the halal business to explore potential for growth and innovation while exchanging knowledge and experiences.

Our conference will cover a range of subjects, with a particular emphasis on halal food products and services in Europe. These themes will include halal certification and standards, new trends and business prospects in the halal sector, and the significance of standardisation and harmonisation in halal certification. We have invited eminent business analysts, halal integrity and enforcement officials, and organisations that have reaped the rewards of having their goods certified halal.

You will have the chance to converse with others about the main problems and difficulties the halal business is now facing during our panel discussions.

We are sure that the ANUGA Global Halal Conference 2023 will be a useful venue for businesses and organisations to present their goods and services, exchange ideas and best practises, and build relationships with thought leaders and professionals. The conference provides ANUGA with a chance to highlight its position as the world's top food and beverage exhibition as well as its dedication to fostering innovation and growth in the halal business.

The chance to collaborate with ANUGA to make this conference successful and advance the halal business is something we eagerly await.

USD 2.3 billion is the global halal market.
A huge market.

The State of the worldwide Islamic Economy Report 2020–2021 projects that by 2020, the worldwide halal industry would be worth roughly US$2.3 billion. This covers both the food and non-food industries including halal cosmetics, finance, and tourism. The same survey estimates that the global market for halal food was worth over USD 1.4 trillion in 2018.

This industry is anticipated to keep expanding as a result of factors such as the rising Muslim population, rising disposable incomes in Muslim nations, and increased non-Muslim consumer demand for halal products. Asia, particularly Indonesia, Malaysia, and Pakistan, has the largest halal food markets.

However, the demand for halal food is also expanding in other areas, such as Europe and North America, where the Muslim population is growing and non-Muslim consumers are interested in halal products due to worries about food safety and quality. In general, the halal industry is a sizable and rapidly expanding market with rising demand for halal products across a variety of sectors.

A further indication that a European halal quality label is imminent.

Building consumer confidence and standardising halal goods and services in Europe require a European halal quality badge. It offers transparency, makes it easier for European businesses to access the Islamic market, increases Muslim consumers' convenience in Europe, and supports the halal industry, all of which have a positive financial impact. Overall, it facilitates trade while meeting the requirements of Europe's expanding Muslim population.
