Local exhibitors at Africa Halal Week 2019 say they want to expand their brands beyond the shores of Cape Town. Adam Ally, from NviroGreen Solutions, a family business based in New Woodlands, said the three-day exhibition at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) enabled them to expose their brands to international guests from countries such as Malaysia, Mozambique and America. The annual event, co-hosted by the provincial Department of Economic Development and Tourism, the City of Cape Town and Wesgro, took place for the second time, from Monday October 7 to Wednesday October 9.
