"It has been a persistent demand from our consumers to provide them with fresh and credibly healthy meat, which has encouraged us to set up meat shops on their doorsteps. The consumers can now buy with confidence the real Halal, fresh and nutrient meat from Al Islami outlets in the major emirates of the UAE."
