Invitation to the Halal and Tayyib Conference and Expo

    Dear Brothers & Sisters,

    السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللّهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

    I have the pleasure of inviting yourselves to our Conference and Expo in Istanbul in September.

    A large part of the consumer products used and consumed by Muslims are produced, monitored and  controlled by non-Muslims. Such kind of control put heavy risk on Muslims’s Halal bite and life.

    GIMDES, the leading Halal certifying body in Turkey is organizing exhibitions and conferences every year to increase the public awareness of Halal Certified products.

    I proudly announce that this year we are organizing the 7th International Halal and Tayyib Products Conference in Istanbul on Saturday, 6 September 2014.

    The main focus of our Conference will be on the following issues :

    • All together One voice full unity for a Halal and Tayyib life
    • Has the time of holding the rope of Allah not come yet?
    • Do Muslims still need Kosher?
    • Halal Slaughter is a blessing of Allah!..
    • The problem of Halal medicine, Halal cosmetic can be solved by Halal Certification.This year, speakers from about 10 countries will share their expertise by giving lectures and discussing the below topics :
    • Pre- and post-slaughter industrial practices of concern in Halal meat production
    • The implications of emerging ingredients and processing practices to the Halalness of food, cosmetics and medicine.
    • Effects of GMO and transgenic products on health. Can GMO products be Halal certified?
    • Requirements for Halal Certification in Service Sectors: Tourism, Catering and Airlines
