Our Vision

At Shahir, we have an unwavering commitment to providing Halal food choices of integrity and quality. We believe you should never have to compromise on taste or tradition, and when you choose Shahir, you don’t have to.

Our History

A long-time vision of Ahsan Razak, Shahir is the culmination of not only Ahsan’s passion of better food choices for Muslim families but also his connection to the community. Growing up in Vancouver, Canada in the 1970’s and 1980’s with recently immigrated parents, Ahsan noticed that Halal food options were limited. This was a sentiment shared among many members of the community, whether children or parents, and they would often discuss ways to solve the limited options. There were very few, if any, Halal meat shops or restaurants and Halal availability in the mainstream market was non-existent. However, the community intertwined through their shared faith was determined to create a path for a better future. Today, that same passion and commitment is reflected in our brand, Shahir. Today Insha-Allah, Shahir can offer quality products while adhering to Halal integrity.

Our Commitment

Shahir sets the standard for quality, taste and tradition in Halal meats. We are proudly certified by the Halal Monitoring Authority (HMA), which we believe is a best-in-class certification adhering to strict standards including Halal-by-hand. As we continue to grow and expand the products we offer to the Muslim community, it is our hope that Shahir becomes the name you rely on to be a part of your family, every day.
