KEY TAKEAWAYS-IFANCA International Halal Food Conference 2017

The Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America's (IFANCA) annual conference is widely regarded by the halal industry as a leading platform to discuss sector issues, led by its wide global representation of speakers and delegates including regulators, government and religious officials, company representatives, and scientists. IFANCA's 19th annual conference this year took place from April 17-19 near Chicago. Across 12 sessions, the conference addressed the theme of “The Changing Paradigm in Halal Certification.” We report on the key takeaways including: regulatory challenges and investment climate, UAE/GSO standards and requirements, and halal ecosystem updates from Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Algeria, and Korea.
