Halal is an Arabic word meaning "allowed" or" lawful". The Qur'anic term Halal is that which is permitted and allowed by Allah. Zabiha is an Arabic word, which means the animal is slaughtered according to the teachings of Islam. According to the zabiha principles, animals are not captive bold stunned but instead are hand slaughtered by slitting the throat. The blood of the animals is thoroughly removed from the bodies. This assures the consumer of getting completely healthy meat processed in accordance with highest standars of cleanliness, purity, and healthiness. In addition to those of the Muslim faith, people from all ethnic and religious backgrounds look for the halal label on food to be assured of healthy, high quality foods.
