All our Meat products are certified by HFSAA (Halal Food Standards Alliance of America), one of the leading Halal certification body in the USA. We only sell Zabiha Hand-Cut & Non-Stunned Meat. We adhere to the 13-Point Inspection Checks in our Halal meat production process as per the guidelines below.

1. 100% HAND-CUT ZABIHA

All our animals are hand-cut individually. We don’t employ automated machines running at high speed to harvest and kill the animal. We follow all the rules for the right slaughter i.e. all the blood vessels are appropriately severed.

2. NON-STUNNED

Majority of the conventional slaughterhouses use some form of stunning - i.e., to subdue and immobilize the animal before the slaughter. The type of stunning varies depending upon the animal. Chickens are inserted into electric water; lambs and goats are stunned with electric rods, and cows are stunned using captive bolt pistol or pneumatic stunner. Stunning may not kill the animal before the actual slaughter, but it is a very serious matter, according to some scholars. 

Therefore, One Stop Halal has decided not to do stunning before the animal is actually slaughtered.

3. ALWAYS FRESH

When you buy from us, you always get fresh meat. We never import any halal meat from foreign countries like Australia or New Zealand. It is never frozen like those imported meats. We ensure that our meat reaches from the Farm to the Table in the shortest period of time.

4. USDA INSPECTED AND APPROVED

Our meat is inspected and approved by USDA to ensure it is safe, wholesome, correctly labeled, and packaged. Meat is checked for animal diseases and unseen hazards, such as microbiological and chemical contamination.

5. MUSLIM SLAUGHTERER

The person doing the slaughter is strictly a Muslim. One can technically also employ a person from “People of the Book,” but there are specific Islamic Slaughter requirements that they need to follow. To avoid any confusion, therefore, we have decided to get the animal slaughter done only by a Muslim.

6. TASMIYAH - NAME OF ALLAH

Tasmiyah - Name of Allah is verbally recited at the time of slaughtering the animal. No other name is taken in conjunction with the name of “Allah”. We also don’t delay to harvest the animal after saying Tasmiyah.

7. COMPLETE VEGETERIAN DIET

We believe what the animal is fed is very important. All our animals are strictly fed a vegetarian diet. No animal byproducts or fats are mixed in their diet. This ensures those byproducts don’t end up in your body when you consume our wholesome halal meat.

8. NO GROWTH HORMONES OR ANTIBIOTICS

Our chickens are never administered any growth hormones or antibiotics. Since there are no antibiotics in our chickens, your body won't develop antibiotic resistance when you are administered by your doctor.

9. NO CONTAMINATION

We strictly enforce that the meat of a zabiha animal is not mixed with a non-zabiha meat. The packaging line for the meat of our zabiha animal is entirely separate.

10. BLOOD DRAINED

We drain the blood out of the animal after they are harvested. Blood is harmful to health as it is full of bacteria, infective agents, waste, and toxic substances. Blood makes meat less healthy, less nutritious, and it can be spoiled very fast.

11. RIGHT TEMPERATURE

While cleaning the animal after the harvest, we make sure the water temperature is never kept high, which may cause the heat to permeate into the meat. And it may cause the meat to spoil fast.

12. PURE & TAYYEB

Tayyeb, meaning to be wholesome and pure, is deeply rooted in Islamic philosophy and principles. While being halal makes sure that things are manufactured or slaughtered in a permissible way, tayyeb sees that what we produce is backed up by an ethical supply chain.

13. CERTIFIED HUMANE

Our chickens are given the Certified Humane label, which verifies the humane manner in which our birds are raised, transported, and handled. Certified Humane is consistent with our core value that all animals should be raised with decency and respect. Not only does this result in happier and healthier farm animals, but it also leads to a higher quality of meat.
