We ensure that our products are sold fresh and not frozen, so that families can enjoy healthy and tasty meals at home.”

Kamran Ahmed Khalili, Chairman and CEO of Al-Shaheer Corporation, added, “Meat One’s popularity in Karachi and Lahore is testament to our superior quality and taste. We have always gone the extra mile to ensure our products are fit and fresh for public consumption. The demand for such meat products has increased greatly over the past year, thus we decided the time was right to take our products to other cities of Pakistan, and provide the citizens with a healthier and fresher alternative to the usual meat available in the markets.”
