Organizers of the Sarajevo Halal Fair (SHF) 2019 especially emphasize that the market for halal products and services is one of the fastest growing in the world, which can be illustrated by the fact that consumption of halal foods and drinks is almost twice as high as global growth according to State of the Global Islamic Economy Report 2017-2018.
According to the same report, growth trends have also been recorded in the area of halal tourism, pharmaceuticals, cosmetic products, Islamic finance.
Demand for halal products and services is growing year by year and there is already a lack of supply in relation to demand, which is an opportunity for companies from our region to present themselves to wholesale and retail chains at Sarajevo Halal Fair (SHF) 2018.
