Bosnia’s capital to host international halal fair


A three-day international halal industry exhibition will open in the Bosnia and Herzegovina’s capital Sarajevo on Sept. 26.

The Sarajevo Halal Fair (SHF), which will be held for the second time in Sarajevo, is expected to host around 100 exhibitors from 30 countries.

Anadolu Agency is the global communication partner for the event, which is organized by Bosna Bank International (BBI).

Amer Bukvic, BBI’s chief executive officer, said more participants will attend the fair compared to the previous one.

“The fair makes Sarajevo the center of Europe in the field of halal production,” said Bukvic.

Damir Alihodzic, the head of Agency for Halal Quality Certification in Bosnia and Herzegovina, said since they started operations in the countries of the region, 141 companies have received halal food certification.

The fair will enable the participants from the Balkan countries — including Serbia, Slovenia and Albania — as well as from Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Malaysia and the EU countries to introduce halal food products.
