HALAL FOOD: A BORDER THAT DOES NOT DIVIDE. October 23rd, 2015. Conference proceedings the Conference was promoted by Link 2007, Assaif and the Directorate General for Development Cooperation, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. “Halal food: a border that does not divide – Culture, Dialogue, Inclusion, Cooperation, Business”. We read this event as a first opportunity of dialogue and deeper understanding on a topic too much underestimated, seen its potentialities in social integration, better food quality, sustainability and economic impact – both for Italian and European food companies. Having this perspective, organizing the Conference in the framework of Expo 2015 and the European Year for Development has been for us a strategic decision.
