The award followed a gruelling 2-stage determination process. The industry recognised judges scrutinised applications and interviewed businesses. This really put everyone through their paces.

EQL MD Rizvan Khalid remarked ‘We are delighted to win this award and I’m grateful to the judges for their endorsement. Above all, this is a team effort and I’m extremely proud of my father, mother, cousins, wife, brother, sisters, uncles and family members who have worked tirelessly and energetically for the business. The family history started from a village in Pakistan, then onto a village in Ireland, where I was born, now onto now a village in England. If there’s one message, I want to leave guests with, then it’s this – if you want quality Halal grass-fed British lamb, don’t forget the Muslim family from Shropshire Hills.’

The Islam Channel Award ceremony was broadcast live on Friday 1-March. Images and highlights can be seen here.
