Pre Beef is Halal Compliant

Pre Beef is Halal Compliant

What Exactly Does "Halal" Mean?

Halal is an Arabic word meaning "permissible." It refers to meat that is processed in a way that adheres to Muslim Sharia Law. There are about 1.8 billion Muslims in the world that adhere to the teachings of the Koran, but beef that meets Halal standards is a healthy choice for anyone!


Is Pre beef zabiha halal?

All of our beef is sourced from New Zealand and Australia where Halal principles are practiced and our plant in Chicago is certified Halal. There are no other proteins processed in our facility, just Pre beef.

Halal beef is 100 percent grass-fed, providing the benefits of no artificial ingredients, hormones or antibiotics. Grass-fed halal beef is higher in micronutrients, omega-3 fatty acids, linoleic acid (a source of antioxidants), vitamin E and beta-carotene. Therefore, both Muslims and non-Muslims recognize the benefits of eating minimally-processed halal beef steak and ground beef.  

What Makes Beef "Halal-approved?"

All of our beef is imported with a halal certification and follows all practices according to Muslim Sharia Law. This includes being hand-slaughtered by a practicing Muslim, not by machine. 

  • All animals are slaughtered by a qualified Muslim slaughter person.
  • All halal slaughtered animals must be subjected to a reversibly, electrically head-only stun to ensure that they are immediately rendered insensible to pain. The animals must remain in that state until death.
  • Bleeding commences immediately after stunning and the animal remains unconscious and insensible to pain until death by exsanguinations occurs.
  • Slaughter is undertaken by competent halal slaughter men who are practicing Muslims.
    The Halal slaughter person slaughters halal animals in accordance with Muslim Sharia Law. This includes the halal animals being alive but insensibly stunned, facing Qibla, and reciting the Tasmiyah “Bismilah Allahuakbar”.
  • The animals are then slaughtered by severing the trachea, oesophagus and both the carotid arteries and jugular vein in one cut.
