KHF was established in 1971 by our father Mohammad Rashid together with his brother in a small grocer shop situated in Katherine Road, East Ham, then known as Kashmir Food Store. They started to do wholesale in 1972 by slaughtering Sheep, Lambs and Chicken by their own hand quickly gaining a reputation for guaranteed Halal slaughtering and quality of Meat and Chicken sold at our shop. Their first aim was to ensure that only 100% guaranteed Halal Meat and Poultry slaughtered according to Islamic Shariah was supplied by our company.
I, Javaid Rashid joined the business in 1975 and was joined by my brother Asghar Rashid in 1980. Together we established a small unit in Malvern Road, East Ham. Here we expanded the business by employing extra staff to maintain demand that exceeded the local area. We also increased our product range due to customer demand and at all times maintaining a reasonable price.
The present premises were bought in 2005 after demand had furthermore increased. The 3rd generation to run the business, my sons Imran and Zieshan Javaid have joined the company to take it to the next level. Plans for further expansion are on the horizon.
The high standards set almost 40 years ago are still being maintained until today.
The company employs over 15 staff. We now have a fleet of lorries and vans including four 7.5ton lorries, two 3.5ton vans and a company car. We deliver all over London and the surrounding areas. Products are bought daily and delivered within hours of slaughter to ensure our customers receive the best fresh meat and poultry.
We still maintain the personal service that we delivered to customers from the first day.
