Are your imported meats Halal?
No. Beef from Canada is not. But Australian lamb and beef are 100% guaranteed to be Halal. The Australian and New Zealand Meat industry caters to the needs of the different cultures and these overseas packers produce halal meat guaranteed to adhere to Islamic laws.

Meats from these sources arrive via sea shipment in discharge time by sea 30 days to the East Coast. The days at sea are perhaps the most important to the quality of the chilled beef or lamb. Frozen meats are kept at freezing points.

During this time, chilled vacuum packaged cuts are allowed to age - a process that improves and enhances meat quality and tenderness.

Air freight is occasionally used to carry chilled products – meat. By air, discharge time is about 21hrs to the East Coast.

When sealed container of products arrive in the United States, they are opened and re-inspected by the USDA to ensure wholesome, un-contaminated and in overall good condition. Any temperature fluctuation is logged during shipping and is also evaluated by the Authorities.

Where is the guarantee?
a) The Australian Government Halal Slaughter Program (AGHS)
The Australian Government Halal Slaughter program (AGHS) provides for maintenance of Halal status and segregation of product after carcasses are declared Halal by Muslim Slaughtermen. AGHS is responsible for the approval of all programs and monitors all aspects of the programs on a daily basis. This includes security and issue of Halal stamps and signing of Certification

b) Muslim Slaughtermen Registration
Muslim slaughtermen (including trainees) and authorized Halal inspectors must hold a current identity card which will identify the Recognized Islamic Organization who has registered the representative and declared the status of the card holder and the cards expiration date.
