Press Release: Halal Monitoring Committee approves first ever Halal cat food in the UK

The Hurayra team

Halal Monitoring Committee

Hurayra Halal Cat Food has recently been certified as the first and only cat food brand to receive this prestigious recognition from the Halal Monitoring Committee (HMC).

HMC was established to help ensure that all Muslims can be confident that all the food they consume is ‘genuinely Halal’.

Founded by Leeds-based entrepreneur Aihtsham Rashid, Hurayra Halal Pet Foods, addresses the long-standing challenge of sourcing natural, high protein, preservative-free options in the UK market.

For years, Aihtsham struggled to find high-quality halal cat food for his cats, as many Muslim pet owners opt for Halal pet food as an extension of their own dietary practices and religious beliefs, particularly if their cat consumes food in their home.

Inspired to tackle the issue himself, Aihtsham kickstarted Hurayra, travelling to a factory in East Asia, a region whose most professed religion is Islam, taking the production of Halal food very seriously, after UK factories could not guarantee a 100% halal certified product or zero cross-contamination.

Hurayra offers four delicious flavours – Tuna, Ocean Fish and Chicken for adult cats and Fish and Chicken for Kittens – each formulated with essential nutrients such as Vitamin A, D, and E, to support a healthy immune system and help protect against infection, along with minerals to keep their coat shiny and smooth.

To celebrate its launch, Hurayra Pet Foods is offering free samples of cat food, and for the first 500 subscribers a complimentary cat food bowl.

Hurayra Halal Cat Food is packed full of natural ingredients to ensure your pet is fuelled with the essential nutrients they need to live a happy and healthy life.
