I tried the Halal Saffron Road Chicken 'tandoori' and absolutely loved, mainly bought it because it was 'responsibly' produced, with humane treatment/raising/slaughtering of chicken, but am definitely going to purchase again because of the amazing flavor. Thank you for offering this product.

Well done Whole Foods! I'm proud of you for standing your ground while the right-wingers make their baseless comments, and I will definitely be shopping at Whole Foods this Ramadan and the next :)

I have tried the chicken biryani and chicken tikka masala, but now I want to venture out to possibly try the moroccan lamb stew, YUM! I went to WholeFoods today and as promised you kept your Ramadan promise and I saw the sale, so thank you so much for that! American Muslims really need some Ramadan lovin!

Hi.I have just read the article about Whole Foods not advertisting the holiday of Ramadan...I am appalled by this move as my kids (my kids,myself and generations before me were all born in the states and were not Muslim,so don't tell us to go back home) don't get to see decorations or signs ever about our holiday,but we are always forced to see Christmas stuff all over even though the US is not 100% Christian. *****WHAT IS HALAL?****** People are so afraid of halal,yet they don't even know what halal means....it's the way Jews and Christians are supposed to kill the animals,but not all of them do.We are supposed to kill the animal giving thanks to God for the animal,using a sharp knife so that it will not be tortured,you cannot kill the babies that are drinking from their mother,you cannpt kill the animal in front of other animals,they need to feel relaxed,they also cannot be fed other animals or hormones,etc....basically the same as organic.There are no weird things going on like people think,all that is said is "In the name of God"......I don't see people scared of Kosher meat,which we as Muslims can eat since they follow the way we do,so it's just something else people like to look for as a reason to hate us. Anyways,since Whole Foods wants to cater to a handful of ignorant people instead of speaking up for something that is right,I won't support Whole Foods anymore,so I ask all of you muslim and not,show them we don't tolerate dividing and ignoring people by not shopping there to show them that we are all Americans and there is nothing wrong with acknowledging a sacred holiday celebrated by many in this country.I ask people to do your research for yourself about our religion and don't let the media tell you what we believe....I wouldn't have converted to a religion that is so bad and neither would any other convert. Have a great day everybody...let's try to live together without causing conflicts when we don't need to,there's enough crazyness in the world right now.

@Waqas, Saffron Road is nationally available at Whole Foods Market stores, however selection may vary from store to store. Contact the store to check that they have exactly what you want and if they don’t you can always request that they order it. Thanks!

You guys are awesome for bringing us more choice in food. I have never been to wholefoods but I cant wait to become a customer. As a local Houston resident, I have tried all the basic Halal items such as the indian and pakistani dishes. Having variety of other types of food including asian, the lemongrass, nuggests is more enticing to me. Let the sky be your limit here. Differentiate!

This sounds just terrific. I am going to buy and in fact stock up on that. That will save me a long drive to Fremont and Newark for halal meat and foods. Thanks Whole Foods.

Thank you Whole foods for introducing this Halal range.This news is the best gift to us.We eat only halal meat.We always wanted to try Thai and European cuisines with chicken,lamb or beef but we were unable to (since they are mostly made with non halal meat).The alternate was a compromise home cooked attempt at these.However this is a blessing.I most certainly will like to try pad thai ,lemongrass basil chicken first.God Bless You!

Thank you WholeFoods for promoting Halal products you decided to sell. Nice to see a National big chain make a stand for the Muslim community. This is good business sense.
