What to know about halal catering
What to know about halal catering
Here's the lowdown on what makes food halal and what you should keep an eye out for when ordering:
The meaning of halal
At its core, 'Halal' is an Arabic term that means permissible or lawful. In the culinary context, it refers to food that's permitted under Islamic law.
For meat to be considered halal:
- The animal must be healthy at the time of slaughter
- Blood must be fully drained from the veins
- Bismillah (in the name of God) must be pronounced during the act of slaughtering
Not just about meat
While the slaughter process is crucial, halal extends beyond that. Forbidden (haram) items include alcohol, carnivorous animals, and even certain preparation methods. For instance, using the same grill for pork (non-halal) and beef (potentially halal) would make the beef non-compliant.
Vegetarian and vegan overlap
If you're in doubt, vegetarian and vegan dishes often (but not always) align with halal requirements since they steer clear of meat altogether. However, do be mindful of alcohol in any sauces or preparation methods.
Your best option is to order from a caterer that offers Halal certified catering. If you need some help putting together a menu, we’re happy to help.
Catering for all, with halal at its heart
We recognise the importance of inclusivity and understand the varying dietary needs within an office environment. Besides offering a vast range of halal dishes, our menus also feature vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free options.
On the EatFirst corporate catering platform, clarity is paramount. Every dish is labelled for convenience. For instance, H = Halal, V = Vegetarian, Vg = Vegan, G = Gluten-free, and D = Dairy-Free.
Your search for catering for halal guests is not just simplified but also broadened to accommodate everyone. If you’re uncertain about your choices or seeking some suggestions, our stellar customer service team is just a call away, eager to assist.
Halal dishes from around the world
Think Halal catering limits your options? Think again! Halal doesn’t just mean traditional Middle Eastern or Southeast Asian food. It’s a certification of preparation that allows everyone to feast without worry.
Here are a few halal choices to get you started:
Middle Eastern magic
Get your taste buds tingling with sumptuous kebabs, falafels, hummus, and shawarma. Add some baklava for a sweet treat, and you've got a meal fit for a sultan!
No, we're not just talking about the sweets! Think succulent lamb dishes, grilled koftas, and spinach-filled gozleme, rounded off with some silky Turkish delight and strong coffee.
From buttery chicken curries to sizzling biryanis and delightful samosas, halal Indian food offers a treasure trove that’s fragrant, spicy, and ever so satisfying.
Halal pizza party
Who doesn't love pizza? With Halal-certified chicken, beef, and a rainbow of veggies, no one will be left out of this pizza fiesta.
Pastas, risottos, and even some pizzas are Halal-friendly when prepared with the right ingredients. So, get ready to say "Buon appetito!"
Indonesian and Malaysian marvels
Nasi Goreng, Beef Rendang, or Satay skewers? Yes, please! Dive into a world of coconut, spices, and flavours that dance on your palate.
