Hyderabad, Aug 6: The historic city of Nizams, which is also the capital city of both Andhra and Telangana, is all set to host India’s first halal trade expo. With the promise of opening the gateway to over US$ 1.1 trillion market of halal industry, the Global Halal Expo 2017 will be held at the City Convention Centre from 19-21 September.
The Global Halal Expo 2017 will inform the visitors about the benefits and advantages of halal certification and will unlock the true potential of the Islamic market globally.
“The Global Halal Expo 2017 will not only promote trade between the rest of the world and Islamic world it will also create awareness on ‘Halal’ living and the wider concept of halal and its extension to industries besides food & beverages,” says the organizers of the expo which, they say, would showcase the macro and micro fundamentals of a halal economy.
India as a Big Market for Halal
The organizers of the Global Halal Expo 2017 aim to tap the huge potential of Halal industry in India – home to over 172 million Muslims, that is 14.6% of India’s total population. Muslims are the second largest community after Hindus in the country and after Indonesia, India has the second largest Muslim population in the world.
India’s personal care products market was estimated at $43 billion in 2015, and the country’s 170 million Muslims accounted for $4.2 billion of this total. This spend is projected to grow to $7.3 billion by 2020, according to Dinar Standard analysis.
There is a clear demand for halal-certified product, which has promoted the rapid growth of new lines such as Iba Halal Care.
“Bikano, the sweet and the namkeen brand from Bikanervala Foods, has seen a 30% jump in soan papdi and cookies sales in Malaysian market in the last one year, partly due to the halal-certification that gave a higher visibility on retail shelves there,” said Global Halal Expo organizers.
“Halal signifies highest standards of quality and hygiene in ingredients, processes and products,” said Sachin Anand, head (international business), Bikanervala Foods.
“Islam in many ways is a way of life. To that extent, Islamic branding is all about using brands as good deeds. What starts with halal foods, can move on to halal practice in every industry, be it the pharmaceutical or the cosmetic industry. Islamic branding can embrace broader pastures that cover business practices too,” said Harish Bijoor, CEO of Harish Bijoor Consults.
Homegrown brands like CavinKare, Daawat, Bikano, Goldwinner oil, Vadilal ice cream, Amrutanjan Health Care and Gujarat Ambuja Exports are embracing halal-certification to get a better foothold in markets
