Halal Food Fest Returning for Its Sixth Year


TORONTO — Toronto’s Halal Food Fest (HFFTO) is returning for its sixth year, July 14 and 15.

The HFFTO will be held at The International Centre in Mississauga, Ont. and is expected to draw more than 35,000 visitors to its 200 Halal food booths.

Representing cuisines from around the world, guests will enjoy unique offerings from Toronto halal restaurants, bakeries, specialty stores and manufacturers.

Among the unique menu items to be served this year are fusion Bihari kebab pizza, Afghan dumplings, hand-pulled noodles, kunafa and butter-chicken poutine.

“The Muslim population in Canada is the fastest-growing religious group and the needs of this market continue to grow,” says Faizal Kagdi and Salima Jivraj, co-founders of Halal Food Festival Toronto. “Foodies — Muslim or not — are always excited to attend each year to see what new things they can try during the two-day festival.”
