Dr. Muhammad Munir Chaudry, President of Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America (IFANCA), and an expert in the halal industry, will be speaking on a panel entitled Halal: Opportunities and Challenges in North America. Chaudry describes halal certification as one of the foundations to building a loyal customer base. He says, "Credible, third-party halal certification resonates strongly with halal consumers. It gives them the peace of mind that the product they are buying is truly halal. It is one of the most effective ways to pursue the $170 billion US American-Muslim consumer market."
The significance of halal certification today is clearly reflected in the approximate 80 percent growth in halal certified ingredients and food products in US and global halal markets, since 2005. Dr. Chaudry spoke on similar themes earlier this year, as a panelist at the National Restaurant Association Show 2010.
