Midamar to Launch Halal Organic Beef and Chicken at SIAL in Abu Dhabi

Cedar Rapids, Iowa (November, 20, 2011) Midamar Halal Foods, America’s first  and largest Halal brand will be exhibiting in the American Pavilion at SIAL Abu Dhabi November 21 to 23.  Midamar will be introducing new USDA Certified Halal Organic Beef and Chicken line at the event.

Midamar is often described as a pioneer in the Halal Food industry.  Established in 1974, it was the first Halal food company in the USA to export USDA approved protein products to the Middle East.  Since then Midamar has worked with the USDA and international organizations to develop Halal standards and processes. In August 2011, the Halal food pioneer was honored with the "Distinguished Community Service Award" from the USDA's Center for Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Midamar was the first USA company to receive the USDA award "For exemplary work in providing Halal food options for Muslims in America and around the world".

“Midamar is a Halal brand that produces and distributes Halal products.  As a Halal company, we incorporate values of family and community in everything we do.   Before we embark on new projects or pursue new opportunities, we assess the impact on the people and the environment we live in.  Being a Halal company is much more than being a company that sells Halal products”, added Aossey.

Aossey’s grandfather started his business in Iowa in 1915 and his father Bill Aossey established Midamar in 1974. The company now sells food products in North America, Africa, the Middle East, and South East Asia.

Midamar is a leading exporter of USA produced Halal foods. “From the outset, our mission was to provide premium quality, Midwestern meat and poultry to Halal consumers in the USA and around the world, and to do this while maintaining the strictest Halal compliance standards”, said Midamar Director, Jalel Aossey.

At SIAL Abu Dhabi, Midamar will be making delicious award winning authentically Greek Style Halal Gyros for participants to enjoy. This is truly a premium and tasty product that delegates won’t want to miss. Additionally, Midamar will be making its signature Halal franks, which have been a favorite of customers for decades.  

Allfreshco, based in Outsource City, Dubai is now distributing Midamar Halal Premium Beef products to distinguished restaurants like those in the Rotana Hotels, the Armani Cafe’ and others . 

Delegates at SIAL Abu Dhabi will be able to learn more about more than 200 premium Halal food products from the owners of Midamar who will be at SIAL. Owners will also be attending the SIAL Innovation Awards, where 3 of Midamar products were chosen as finalists.

Aossey added, “We exhibited at SIAL last year and had the opportunity to meet our customers and learn more about their needs and what is happening in the region. We also met many prospective customers and others in the food industry. It is a brilliant and dynamic show that we at Midamar, wouldn’t miss. We encourage all delegates to visit us at booth 54 in the American Pavilion”.
