A debate on Halal Perspectives - Understanding Muslim Customers will take place in a special session on Consumer Concerns at the third Middle East Food Marketing Forum to be held in Dubai this month. Hajj Abdalhamid Evans, director of research and intelligence for The Halal Journal, based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will be leading the Dubai debate. 'Halal is such a multi-dimensional arena. Islam is growing in popularity around the globe and also the public's awareness of it is increasing at such a rate that we can expect to see dramatic growth in all halal sectors,' he said. The third Middle East Food Marketing Forum will take place from February 21 to 23 at Dusit Dubai Hotel, Shaikh Zayed Road, Dubai. The event is also allied with the region’s biggest food exhibition – Gulfood – providing a special opportunity for participants. 'Halal food is having a significant impact on global markets,' said conference director Chris Mullinger. 'In the food industry, consultants have pointed out that halal certification is in itself an important and under-utilised value-added element.'
