Dr. Muhammad Munir Chaudry, President of IFANCA, was a featured speaker in the program. He spoke on the “Chemical Status of Ingredients and Halal Production Requirements”. Dr. Muhammad Munir Chaudry shared thirty years of experience in ingredient technology in his presentation entitled Chemical Status of Food and Feed Ingredients. His talk also covered biotechnology and genetically modified (GM) food issues and the halal status of these processes. "The First Gulf Conference on Halal Industry and its Services will raise the global food and beverage industry's awareness of halal to a higher level," said Dr. Chaudry. He added that such conferences would enable Middle Eastern countries to join the same level of success that is currently enjoyed by Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. These countries offer excellent programs in halal certification for meat, packaged foods, cosmetics, medical, and lifestyle products. By implementing halal programs, these countries have enabled global companies to streamline business practices and enjoy fruitful, long-term relationships with their economies.
