Walmart is selling Halal certified Crescent foods at 77 stores in 11 states according to Crescenthalal.com:
Crescent Foods, the nations’ leading provider of Premium Halal Chicken is now supplying their quality products to 62 new Walmart Supercenter and Walmart Neighborhood Market locations across the country in addition to the existing 15 they have been serving for close to 4 years. New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, Ohio, Wisconsin, Indiana, Maryland, Delaware and Iowa have joined Illinois and Michigan to become the first eleven states where consumers can buy the chicken they trust on a regular grocery trip.
“We have been inundated with requests from consumers asking us when they could buy Crescent chicken in their state and we are excited to be able to cater to that demand,” said Joohi Tahir, Vice President of Marketing at Crescent Foods. “It makes good business sense for us to cross over to the mainstream market and for Walmart to recognize the potential of this All Natural and Premium Halal product. After all, the Halal consumer is a significant growing market sector with purchasing power of over $170 billion a year”.
Halal is the Islamic term used to reference foods and drinks that are permissible for Muslims to eat or drink under Sharia law. Unlike Kosher, Halal certification supports Sharia law which advocates many practices that are inhumane and antithetical to the United States Constitution. Click here to read more about Sharia law. Kosher also does not treat the animal in the barbaric manner as Halal does.
Crescent foods is Halal certified by the Shar’l Zabihah Committee which is a division of the Rahmat-e-Alam Foundation according to Crescenthalal.com.
At Crescent Foods, we take the guess work out of wondering if something is Halal or not. We do our job to ensure that you have the peace of mind in knowing that the chicken you enjoy has been raised and processed to the highest standards of Halal.
Crescent chickens are hand slaughtered individually according to Halal guidelines by Muslims with strict adherence to all required aspects including direction to Qiblah.
