Like all American Immigrants, Riaz Uddin, the founder of Madani Halal came to this country with hopes of finding the American Dream - success and fortune. With the traditions and restrictions of Halal and Kosher so similar in nature, he began working in Kosher establishments, fine-tuning the skills that would lead to what Madani is today. In 1956, Mr. Uddin opened his first in a long line of food related businesses including Halal Kebab and Restaurants. Almost forty years later his earlier successes would lead him into the business of delivering the highest quality Halal meats and poultry. 'I wasn't looking for the business, it was looking for me', he once said.
In 1996, Madani Halal opened its doors. Initally, Madani was a small poultry market selling only chicken. However, its product line has now grown to cover a wide range of all natural chickens and birds such as Broilers, Roasters, Rhode Island Fowl, Red Cockerals, Cornish Hens, Layers, Pheasants, Quail, Squab, Chuckers, Guinea Hens, Black and White Turkeys, Muscovey Ducks, and Water Ducks. Madani also specializes in top quality Suffolk and Dorset Lamb, Boer Goat, and the fancier 'Show Goat'.
For the past 12 years, Madani has continued to cater to the demand for purely Halal goods for muslims in the local area. In 2003, Riaz's son, Imran decided to take over and continue his fathers dream of providing the most superior Halal products for Muslims, treated humanely, and slaughtered according to strict Islamic Law. Imran's experience would be documented in the highly successful documentary 'A Son's Sacrifice', which won best short film at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival, and was aired in late 2007 on PBS.   Added on July 7, 2008
