announced the launch of six new world-inspired flavours to the Zabiha
Halal line of chicken deli meats.
Canadians will love the delicious taste because it's made using a simple recipe that includes wholesome Halal chicken breast, authentic flavours and does not include ingredients such as gluten and fillers. The new flavours are completely gluten-free and lactose-free and are available pre-packaged with a resealable zipper to maintain freshness.
No other company offers such a wide variety of ethnic-inspired chicken deli meats.
Zabiha Halal now offers Chicken Deli meats in the following flavours: Moroccan, Bombay, Shawarma, Lime & Herb, Cooked (also available in half roast), Smoked (also available in half roast).
With a community of more than one million Muslims in Canada, the collective appetite for Halal chicken options is on the rise. At the same time, the interest in Halal products is growing beyond the Muslim community to include a growing number of health-conscious Canadians interested in food preparation.
"According to the World Halal Forum Canadians spend about $350 million a year on Halal protein products," said Salman Faisal, Zabiha Halal Brand Manager, Maple Lodge Farms. "More and more Canadians are searching for new Halal food options and we're pleased to provide new, innovative, quality products to our valued customers."
The Halal processing at Maple Lodge Farms is managed by practicing Muslim employees. The Zabiha Halal line is certified by the Islamic Society of North America – offering the community 100 per cent confidence in the quality of Maple Lodge Farms Halal products.
