London Halal Food Festival
London Halal Food Festival is a two-day event held every year at Wapping’s Tobacco Dock in London. The event champions Muslim food and lifestyle, and regularly draws a national and international audience of over 20,000 people who are attracted by the top-quality halal food, live entertainment and cooking demonstrations.
There were over a hundred international exhibitors at this year’s event, and staff from our Whitechapel and Edgware branches were lucky enough to be included amongst them. Throughout the celebrations, Al Rayan Bank had an opportunity to discuss our ethical, Sharia compliant products and services with attendees.
Saquib Ismail, Head of Branches and Retail Deposits said of the experience:
“The local communities and organisations we work with are at the core of everything we do. Being part of the London Halal Food Festival this year has provided a great platform for Al Rayan Bank to get involved in the community spirit in the local area and we’ve enjoyed speaking to guests about Islamic finance. The event was the perfect chance for our local staff to celebrate delicious food, whilst spreading the word about our ethical and Sharia compliant product offering.”
