We offer Halal Certified beef and lamb products. Food is considered Halal (allowed for consumption) when obtained in accordance with the rules of The Holy Al Quran and the Islamic Jurisprudence. The Sharia prohibits the consumption of all types of genetically modified foods, along with mineral products and toxic chemicals that threatens human health. 

 

  • For the meat products, slaughter must follow the Halal ritual procedure. It is not allowed to slaughter animals such as pigs, dogs, animals which have fangs, pests and predator birds. 
  • The Halal slaughter must be done separately from the non Halal procedure, and must be carried out by a Muslim that is aware of the fundamentals of Halal slaughter.

 

 

 

 

We offer Kosher certified beef, lamb  and other fine food products. Kosher is the definition given to food when prepared according to Jewish Laws. 

 

  • The Torah demands that cattle, lamb and chicken must be slaughtered under these laws in a ritual named Shechita.
  • Only a trained person, the Shochet is able to carry out this ritual. As special prayer, Beracha is done before the Shechita.
