Our Solution for Your Halal Meal Programs
Institutions with either a consistent Muslim clientele level or with a variable and fluctuating population find J&M® halal meals and My Own Meal® dual certified kosher and halal meals to be the perfect solution. We recommend our five (5) meal varieties in microwaveable/hot water re-heatable 10 oz (283g) trays.
For additional variety, we also offer J&M® halal certified meat meals in 8 oz (227g) foil food pouches. These are also readily available in our inventory and pouch case orders can be combined with tray case orders to keep costs down and variety high.
While the vegetarian meals can be dual certified both kosher and halal, meat meals cannot be dual certified because the slaughter man must practice his respective faith.
Fast Delivery Turnaround
J&M processes an order and ships either the same or next shipping day. We ship Monday through Thursday via UPS (United Parcel Services) or by commercial truck service for pallet orders. Within days, the product arrives and is ready to use.
Quick and Convenient Halal Meals
Just Heat and Serve
Our halal meals are packaged in convenient plastic meal trays that can be either heated in the microwave oven for about a minute, or in vertical steam tray units, or by placing them into hot water to reheat.
For more meat variety, we carry J&M® halal meals packaged in convenient foil food pouches often referred to as boil-in-bag.
If an emergency arises at the institution, each halal meal is fully cooked and can be consumed as is, although meals always taste better hot. We taste test each batch cold before we ship them to you so we know that they taste delicious even unheated.
Ambient Temperature Storage
Storage is easy and convenient in dry storage at ambient temperatures. J&M® halal meals and My Own Meal® vegetarian halal meals do not take precious and limited refrigerator or freezer space. In fact, they should not be stored in the freezer or cold refrigeration which could damage either the packaging or the quality of the meal itself. We developed the recipes with shelf stable storage in mind.
Resources Available for Menu Planning of Halal Meals
We can assist in menu planning ideas and preparation alternatives. To help you understand more about what halal certification is and what halal means, we co-authored a concise Halal Industrial Production Standards© book with an Appendix listing the status of many common ingredients as a quick reference. It does not replace proper Islamic supervision but rather explains the process and why it is necessary. This book has been used in food service training by institutions, US and local governments and private companies worldwide.
