The AHM Story


For over 30 years Dr. Omar Wali, President of American Halal Meat, has been working in the halal meat industry.  His experience has taken him to slaughterhouses all around the world, and given him insight into the truth behind halal meat.

He started his career in the industry shortly after he completed Cairo University’s veterinary medicine program, as an inspector for Egyptian slaughterhouses.  Soon after, he began a career with private import inspection company Comibasal International Center for Inspection and Control Studies.  As an inspector of imported halal meat Dr. Wali traveled to Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil and Ireland to ensure halal slaughter practices were observed.

When he moved to Northern Virginia from Alexandria, Egypt, Dr. Wali saw a need for quality halal meat products in the area.  For 29 years he has made it his mission to ensure that the Muslim community has access to affordable halal meats.  He uses his education as a veterinary doctor to identify quality products, his experience as an inspector to ensure a halal process is followed and his strong faith in Allah SWT to guide his customer relations and business dealings.

American Halal Meat has now served the Muslim community from Baltimore, Maryland to Richmond Virginia for over a quarter century. We work with slaughterhouses on the east coast, and meat packers across the country to find the best halal meat products available.
