n today’s world, the Halal products and services are fast gaining worldwide recognition as a new benchmark for safety and quality assurance. Halal has the

potential to become a standard associated not only with product quality, but also with international best practices over the entire supply chain. Malaysian government have seen this trend coming many years ahead of many others, thus the government have started the gigantic effort in the early years to move Malaysia forward in the international arena as the world “Global Halal Hub”. Malaysian companies are encouraged to exploit this opportunities in global Halal industry. The birth of DagangHalal.com is the response to the government’s noble call.

Although there is no estimate of the total transaction from SIAL, an independent event survey conducted showed that most loyal exhibitors and visitors such as, Wal Mart and Carrefour indicate that roughly 70% of the exhibitors generate over 3 months turnover while participating in SIAL. If these figures are to be relied upon then it is obvious that participating in SIAL is a good business strategy. The exposure one can get here can change the course of one's business. Visitors at SIAL are driven to it in search of new and better suppliers who are armed with fresh and innovative products. It turns out to be beneficial for the suppliers too, as it gives them a chance to display their product in a place where the world's best compete for global attention. Local visitors to the fair spend an average of two and a half days at SIAL. However, international visitors stay on longer, making the best of an opportunity that allows them

SIAL has also decided to combine the SIAL Innovation and SIAL d’Or activities. This will now help visitors to see how old innovations continue to inspire future modernization and how the same can be executed in the future. In what was seen as a reward for the hard work done by the organizers all exhibitors were satisfied with the turnout of visitors and are now planning to re-exhibit their products in the forth coming event. There can be no second opinion that the next SIAL event will be a much bigger success than all the previous have been.

Casademont is a reliable company in terms of the products it offers. Halal certification is established and trusted internationally; therefore, having this certain food certification verifies that the products provided by Casademont are safe to consume. Given the credibility brought about by having a Halal certification, the trend in Spain is shifting to the demand of more Halal-certified products. As a result, more trusted Halal-certified products will be emerging in the market, which translates to more competition for the company. Casademont, however, holds an advantage with

present in Anuga, Germany with the aim of penetrating new markets, presenting new products, and increasing sales. Through the exposure it gains by joining SIAL, it intends to further promote Casademont's image and products to the international market. The company, presently the third (3rd) largest poultry producer in Spain, started out in the year 1956 as a family business that was operated privately. It has then grew to what it currently is - one of the market leaders in Spain when it comes to poultry products. In addition, the President and CEO of the company, Ms. Adriana Casademont, has won several business awards in Catalonia. She is also an awardee of the International Women's Entrepreneurial Challenge (IWEC) that was held in New York during the year 2011. Casademont's products mainly include turkey, beef, and chicken meat, among others. Varieties of its orders range from 400 grams to 200 kilograms. The company's products are established under the brand name "Al-Kharif" and are also Halal-certified. This food certification is issued by Instituto Halal De Junita Islamica in Cordoba, Spain, and can serve as proof to consumers that

Casademont has a large customer base. Currently, the highest volume of Al-Kharif products ordered comes from Lebanon, whereas the highest demand for it comes from the West Coast of Africa. One challenge faced by the company, though, is entry into the Chinese market. It finds it complicated to penetrate this particular market due to the regulations set by the country's government; nonetheless, it is still able to overcome this challenge and obtain and fulfill orders from China. In addition, other international buyers of Casademont's Al-Kharif products include those from Brazil, France, Germany, England, South Africa, and Mexico. Moreover, customers have given positive feedback on the five (5) new products that were recently launched by the company during SIAL. Overall, the standing of Casademont S.A. with regards to its products is superb and its customers appear pleased, too.

COVER STORY

Lornoy Viande De Veau is expanding its export market by targeting European regions of France and Germany, and is also looking at markets in the Middle East and Asia. The veal industry in Europe is extremely competitive, as veal is one of the favourite of European meats. The milk-fed veal is considered premium quality while those fed with a mixture of milk and grain are also enjoyed regularly. There are several reasons why expanding into the Middle East and other parts of Europe may be promising. Veal is low in calories and fats and is very easily digested. It is a delicate and tender meat that is very lean, with a delicate taste that can be enjoyed by almost everyone. Production is strictly regulated to ensure that it meets all of the required regulations and standards, and it is considered to be very high in nutritional content.

The SIAL 2012 exhibition will be Lornoy’s first time as an exhibitor, although the company has been in attendance at previous exhibitions, and due to the rigid manufacturing controls and hygienic production practices, it can be expected that longer lasting relationships can be built with other customers in other regions of the globe. Veal has in fact been increasing in popularity, because of its tenderness and fantastic flavour, and also because it is one of the leanest meats available.

SIAL is a global food marketplace that seeks to bring all the companies in the food industry together as well as discuss new inventions and ideas. Azteca became a member of SIAL a decade ago and their participation in SIAL 2012 is meant to consolidate their place in existing markets as well as venture in new ones. With the current increase in the number of Asian visitors, the company is expected to win their hearts with treating dinners that will result in demand for increased exports to their countries.

SIAL 2012, An Exceptional Exhibition

........................................................................................................................................

T

hanks to a solid reputation on the international stage and the food industries’ strong competitive edge rooted in innovation, the exhibition enabled

actors from this high-potential economic sector to meet. This is the sole viable SIAL trademark. These preliminary statistics clearly affirm SIAL’s positioning as global leader in the cross-cutting agri-food markets. The quasi-tangible effervescence and enthusiasm in the aisles showed that language was no barrier in creating solid business leads. Through the impetus of XTC World Innovation, TNS Sofres and the 29 SIAL d’Or partners, the Innovations corner undeniably consolidated SIAL’s expertise as a laboratory and observatory of supply and demand in food innovation. For five whole days, SIAL made Paris the capital of the food planet where all the agri-food channels were food connected. In the current gloomy economic climate, the exhibition’s strategic dimension – demonstrated by the 200 events and conferences at the heart of today’s economic and political preoccupations – undoubtedly left its mark. Guillaume Garot, French Deputy Minister of Agri-food noteworthy for his daily involvement, together

with numerous ministers and political and scientific personalities, opened the debate on key issues relating to the future of the food industry in France: food challenge, anti-waste programme announcement, Made in France, nutrition, and more; and all these themes were programmed by SIAL TV. The 2012 show, fully attuned to the mainstream market challenges, highlighted the dynamism of the agri-food industry on a global scale. A high-performing business arena, the flow of international visitors at SIAL had a global offering at their fingertips. “Our aim was to strengthen the proximity between the sector players present. It’s now ‘mission accomplished’. SIAL played a pivotal role with a view to the challenges of today and the issues of tomorrow”, remarked Valérie Lobry, Managing Director of Comexposium's Agriculture and Food Industry Division.

................................................................. SIAL connection also means SIAL worldwide. The forthcoming exhibitions are: • SIAL Toronto, 30 April to 2 May 2013 • SIAL Shanghai, 7 to 9 May 2013 • SIAL São Paulo, 25 to 28 June 2013 • SIAL Abu Dhabi, 22 to 24 November 2013 • SIAL Montreal, 2 to 4 April 2014

Attendance had risen by 10.2% compared with 2010, confirming SIAL’s role as a catalyst for global trade with 150,192 professional visitors (versus 136,381 in 2010), of whom 62.8% were international visitors from 200 countries.
