Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu,

Please note, we do not have any knowledge regarding the business you have inquired about in your question, we only know about the establishments we certify and monitor. For a complete list of slaughter houses, processors, retailers and restaurants can be found at

Having said that, please understand, not everything labeled as Halal or Halal Zabiha unfortunately meets the necessary requirements to consider the meat as Halal. One should take extreme caution and only utilize meats and poultry certified and monitored by organizations who have a set of standards in accordance to the teachings of Quran and Sunnah.
