UAE – Made in Italy Halal-certified to increase exports to the UAE and Gulf region

UAE – Made in Italy Halal-certified to increase exports to the UAE and Gulf region

It was signed during the last days of Milan Expo 2015 an agreement Italy-UAE on the Halal certification between Accredia (unique Italian accreditation body) and Esma (UAE authorities).

The Halal stamp, a quality , supply chain and product certification approved that products are produced with processes allowed by Islamic doctrine. Especially for the food industry Halal certification adds to compliance with Italian and European regulations concerning health and safety.

Thanks to the agreement Accredia will issue certifications for application to a variety of categories: the entire food industry, cosmetics, textile and leather. Not only, for the service sector, certification will also serve hotels and restaurants, transport services, logistics and storage.

The aim is to facilitate the trade between Italy and the Emirates which now records, for the first 5 months of 2015, a +16.2% of exports and +24.5% of imports. As for the sectors, the strongest in export are jewelry, clothing, furniture and design and of course the entire food sector. The opportunity is a must for Italian companies that, with the certification, may obtain a potential advantage over their international competitors to open, through the Emirates, the entire Islamic market.
