Med-Diet, Inc., the parent company of Halal Healthy, is a privately held Minnesota (US) company that was founded in 1980 to provide specialty food products for people requiring a major change from the “normal” American diet.
We offer a wide assortment of foods through major foodservice distributors, including products suitable for the Halal diet.
In 2007, Med-Diet created a division, Foodservice Express®, to focus exclusively on helping major foodservice distributors, such as Sysco, US Foods and Reinhart, provide specialty products to their customers nationwide. Our products are now featured in over 15,000 foodservice operations.
Its sister division, Halal Healthy, focuses on helping foodservice operators to understand the halal market and why they should be offering halal products.
Med-Diet, Foodservice Express and Halal Healthy work closely with Halal-certifying organizations to assure that foods are properly inspected and certified. The largest certifying organization in the United States is the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America (IFANCA). Its seal is recognized by countries and consumers around the world. To boost consumer confidence Med-Diet provides copies of the halal certificates to all its distributors and to facilities upon request.
Through its unique partnerships with the largest foodservice distributors Med-Diet is working to open up many other foodservice venues to halal, including schools & colleges, restaurants, recreation/leisure/camps, airlines, government and military facilities and company cafeterias.
