Halal, in Arabic language, stands for lawful or permissible. Due to unclean food processing
& packaging methods, food might get contaminated with bacteria or pathogens. Halal foods
are manufactured with stringent halal regulations, which do not allow any haram (unlawful or
unsuitable) ingredients to be mixed with the main product. Therefore, halal food products are
gaining popularity among consumers, as they offer excellent advantages over most of the
conventional food products.
In 2017, Halal Expo Dubai and Salaam Gateway teamed up to increase foreign direct
investment in Dubai. The agreement will provide common platform to global investors,
exhibitors, and trade visitors to increase awareness about Halal Expo Dubai. Moreover, in
