A halal food park has opened in Birmingham, with processing companies JKY Food Solutions and Asia Halal Meat buying up enough space for up to 10 halal businesses.
The halal food park, at 126 Leopold Street in Birmingham, is now operational after opening two weeks ago, and will soon carry the name First Halal Business Park. There are currently three meat processing companies on-site – JKY Food Solutions, Asia Halal Meat and Asia Halal Poultry – with more due to move in in coming months.
JKY Food Solutions, set up in 2010, supplies over 150 restaurants and 70-80 retail shops. Director Muhammed Junaid said: "We were previously on too small a premises, so we moved to this big place and now we have room for a lot of other halal businesses too.
