Our commitment to Halal

Consuming Halal is an order of Allah SWT and an essential part of the Islamic faith. Allah has repeatedly emphasised the consumption of Halal in His book.

“O Messengers, eat from the pure foods and work righteousness” (Quran 23:51)

“And do not eat that upon which the name of Allah has not been mentioned, for indeed it is a grave disobedience”. (Quran 6:121)

As a Muslim company we are committed to following the commands of Allah SWT in every aspect of our business, and we know our customer expectations hold the same weight.

Who are HMC (Halal Monitoring Committee)?

HMC is a non-profit making organisation set up to monitor, inspect and certify Halal products, in particular the Halal meat and poultry sector. HMC was established in 2003 consisting of various Ulema (Muslim Scholars) and figures from diverse backgrounds. HMC has been set up to work in the favour of all Muslims; consumers, retailers and suppliers. HMC only certify un-stunned meat, as this is the authentic Sunnah method (Prophets Way) of slaughter.

Al Badia’s passionate support of HMC

We have been affiliated with the Halal Monitoring Committee (HMC) from its inception and are amongst its most vocal and active supporters. We passionately believe in halal eating and strongly advocate that the best way of ensuring this for all Muslim businesses, consumers and suppliers is to unify around the HMC standard. As an approved HMC meat plant, we only source our meat from HMC approved suppliers and abattoirs under the strict monitoring administration of the HMC. The HMC operates a very tightly controlled chain of abattoirs, cutting/processing plants, butchers shops and food outlets; specially trained monitors are placed at every control point from farm to fork who ensure the end consumer eats only genuinely halal foods.

Our guarantee
  • 100% guaranteed HMC halal meat- We will not tolerate any product that is not supervised by the HMC as we believe this is the best reassurance we can offer to our customers. Unlike our competitors we only process HMC certified products in our cutting plant; we do not operate a deceitful dual policy of selling HMC and non HMC meat to make more money. Hence you can be rest assured that no mixing of meat takes place with us.
  • All meat is sourced from reputable HMC suppliers with full traceability. We insist on professional operations and hygienic facilities, or we simply take our business elsewhere; we are not interested in increasing our profitability at the expense of halal food quality.
  • Independent inspectors frequent our plant without warning to ensure our food hygiene and safety standards are best preserved so our halal meats promises remain guaranteed.
  • All our operations and logistics take place in suitable temperature controlled environments to ensure there is no break in the chill chain. This maximises freshness and reduces the risk of biological contamination. Our plant consists of a brand new state of the art facility to ensure even higher standards.
  • Hygiene- well presented, uniformed drivers and clean temperature controlled delivery vans epitomises our standards. But it doesn’t stop there; the entire backend operations of the business is highly regulated and conducted according to stringent hygiene standards.
