Invitation to the Halal and Tayyib Conference and Expo

Assalamu alaikum WRWb.

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

  •    Halal Slaughter is a blessing of Allah!..
  •    The problem of Halal medicine, Halal cosmetic can be solved by Halal Certification.
