JOHANNESBURG - The explosive growth of the Halaal industry in Africa is creating many trade and business opportunities in the food, pharmaceuticals, personal care, cosmetics and tourism industries, organisers of an upcoming trade show said on Friday.
The Global Trade Show (GTS) will run on July 29-31 in Midrand, with the South African National Halaal Authority (SANHA) among a growing number of Halaal organisations supporting it.
South Africa is a leading producer of Halaal products worldwide, despite its relatively small Muslim population.
"GTS attracts participants from around the world,” said Anina Hough of GTS Africa, organisers of the show.
“It offers a versatile and effective platform for trade: intra-Africa, inter-Africa, continental and global."
