Chef Exchange Programme to Encourage Halal Concepts

More than 80 percent respondents of a survey published by the Muslim Travel Shopping Index 2015, agreed that the availability of Halal food options is significant when choosing a holiday destination.

Inspired by these results, the Chef Exchange Programme has been established to encourage gourmet Halal cuisine. The partnership between Cape Town Tourism and CrescentRating has brought two chefs from Singapore, Muhammad Kamal and Javed Ahamad, to cultivate awareness on Halal concepts.

Patricia de Lille, executive mayor, City of Cape Town, commented, “We have a strong local Muslim community and it is the City of Cape Town’s hope that we can continue to strengthen ties with international Muslim communities and welcome more visitors to our city.”
