Our Commitment to Halal

What is Halal?

Halal is an Arabic term that means “permissible” or “lawful” in Islam. In the context of food and drink, halal refers to items that are prepared and consumed according to Islamic dietary laws. These laws outline specific guidelines for what Muslims can and cannot eat. Halal food is an integral part of Islamic dietary laws, and consuming halal food is seen as fulfilling religious obligations for Muslims.

Our Halal Philosophy

As a Muslim-owned and operated company, we follow halal principles and respect the teachings of Islam in everything we do. Our process has been designed to treat animals with dignity, care, and respect. We take pride in our reputation and the standards we maintain to offer our customers the best halal products.

Credibility in Halal

As a third-generation Muslim-owned and operated business, at Amir Quality Meats we can confidently say that we are experts in halal foods because that’s all we’ve ever known, and all we eat at home. This proposition is unique in the Canadian industry and has created an exceptionally high level of trust and authenticity when it comes to the processing, distribution, and certification of our full product line of halal foods.

Family-owned and Operated

As an independent, family-run business, integrity, meticulous attention to detail, and a commitment to the highest quality extends to every product. Beyond profit, honouring halal practices and traditions, upholding the business’s reputation, and building long-term relationships in our industry and community, are always prioritized.

Vertically Integrated

Being a vertically integrated business ensures our customers benefit from consistent quality and strict adherence to halal standards. With complete control over the production process from raising animals to processing and distribution, we offer transparency, traceability, and assurance regarding the meat’s source and handling. This allows for ultimate peace of mind, customized products, and provides all our customers—from foodservice to families—with a high-quality halal meat source they can trust.
