Halal food products have finally become mainstream in the Northiin American market. Several Canadian big name grocery chains like Loblaws, Food Basics, and Sobeys have been carrying Halal products for the past few years. Now, their American counterparts are finally catching up. A new Walmart store in Dearborn is carrying a full range of Halal products in an effort to cater to the area's large Muslim community.
Halal meats have been shelved at the store in a separate case, reports the Detroit News. The store also carries packaged food products as well as fruits and vegetables from Egypt and Lebanon.
Another top retailer Kroger is also reportedly carrying some Halal brands. It is, however, not known whether these products are certified by any organization or their standards. Halal.com is investigating these products and will report back shortly.
