IFANCA is preparing for its 15th International Halal Food Conference to
be held in Chicago from April 11 to 13, 2013. Normally an opportunity
exclusive to IFANCA’s clients, this year’s conference will be open to all those
interested in halal including companies, independent entrepreneurs and
all other stakeholders.
It will give you the chance to learn and network with decision makers representing
industries such as ingredients, packaged foods, food service products, personal care
products, packaging materials and pharmaceuticals. In past years, we have had speak-
