Kerr’s at the Halal Food Festival

July 31, 2017


A few weeks ago, we were excited to participate in the 5th Annual Halal Food Festival in Toronto, the largest Halal food festival in North America! With over 40, 000 people visiting this two-day event (the largest turnout ever!), we were able to share the floor with over 200 different vendors, meet some amazing people, and of course try some mouth-watering dishes!


Celebrated as “two days of food, live demonstrations, seminars, cooking competitions, performances and more enjoyed over five festival areas and over 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space,” the Toronto Halal Food Fest was the perfect summer food event for everyone!

Fun Fact: There were more Muslims at Halal Food Fest 2017 than there were in all of Canada in 1971!

Kerr’s had two booths at the festival, located side-by-side in “Sample City,” of which had staff handing out over 120kgs of candy and giving away over 2,000 lollypops!






Don’t worry though, we weren’t just there to share our Halal treats – we were also there to try some of the amazing food being offered by the other vendors! The only challenge we faced was choosing which vendor’s food to try first! Some of our favourites did include:


  • The Samosa Chaat from the “Indian Street Food” booth (very delicious!)

  • The Holy Burger (American cheese, pickles, onions and mac sauce) from “The Holy Grill” Food Truck (also yum!)


We were excited to be able to discuss our new HMA (Halal) Certification and talk about our new products along with our classic favourites with those who came by our booth to say hello! Such a great festival – we were proud to be a part of it! Thanks Halal Food Fest Toronto!


We are pleased to announce that we’ve worked closely with the Halal Monitoring Authority (HMA) to obtain Halal certification for the majority of our products! Want to check out all of our Halal certified candies? Visit
