Halal lamb meat from Chile will be presented for the first time at Gulfood and in the region this year.

It has been two years since Chile received certification to export halal meat to the UAE but Chilean company Agromarin supported by ProChile was keen to wait until Gulfood 2013 to launch its product.

The product will be launched at the Halal Corner at Gulfood and will be used in the closing dinner at Radisson Blu Deira Creek for chefs and culinary judges, on February 28 2013.

“The fair and the closing dinner will be an excellent showcase for Chile to enter to the UAE with Halal lamb meat. The kilos we brought for this occasion are part of the first shipment sent to this country and the producers, Agromarín, are certificated by the Halal Certification Department of the Islamic Center of Chile. This is a great opportunity for Chile to reach this market and offer their meat products”, said Carlos Salas, ProChile United Arab Emirates director.

Besides Halal lamb meat, Chile will also showcase other products from seven certified halal food producer companies, including apple juice, dried berries and olive oil.

Gulfood 2013 will take place between 25-28 February 2013.
