HalalEat crowdfunding
The UK’s first halal food delivery provider, HalalEat, launches equity crowdfunding campaign & reaches nearly 50% of its £100k goal in just the first day.

HalalEat, the British startup with a mission to bring halal food to the masses, has launched a campaign on equity crowdfunding platform, Seedrs. Launched on Tuesday, the campaign has already raised over £49k is well on its way to overfunding its goal of £100,000.

The London based startup is the UK's first halal food delivery portal offering a diverse range of takeaway choices from curry to Caribbean, Chinese, Italian and more.

Founder Abul Rob, previously worked for Just Eat and Hungry House, but decided to launch HalalEat in November 2015, after finding himself unable to confidently and easily order a halal takeaway whilst away on a business trip.

Abul Rob says, “The takeaway economy is vast, with British people spending an estimated £9.9bn on takeaways in 2016. However, we know that a large percentage of the HalalEat crowdfundingpopulation feel underserved and unable to confidently order takeaway online from a platform they can trust to deliver food they can trust.”

There are currently over 3.1 million Muslims living in the UK, with London being home to over 1.1m Muslims alone, the majority of whom abide by a Halal-only diet.

HalalEat’s restaurant partners are rigorously checked to ensure they are certified Halal. Abul says, “We work closely with the Halal certification organisations such as  the Halal Food Authority to ensure all of our restaurant partners are vetted and their claims substantiated.

Saqib Mohammed the CEO of the Halal Food Authority, says “We fully support the initiative of HalalEat and wish them every success in their campaigns that would not only offer tangible benefits to individual consumers but would also help the growing Islamic economy.”

The global market size of the Halal economy is set to rise to $3trillion by the end of the decade.  

At present, the majority of HalalEat’s restaurant partners are in East London. However, the company has limited coverage in Birmingham, Luton, Kingston and Portsmouth, all offering a range of modern and diverse Halal choices.

“We have big ambitions to go nationwide and we know that the market is ready. We are also currently developing a HalalEat app for smartphones and tablets so that consumers have access to 100% halal food 100% of the time.”

Funding from their Seedrs campaign will be directed towards the next stage of growth. 

Good luck to Abul, co-founder Musa Ahmed and the rest of the HalalEat team with the rest of their crowdfunding campaign.
