This all began in 1971, when a young and hardworking man named Iqbal Malek came to Canada with just $7 in his pocket. He worked long hours at various jobs, and the same time went to 3 schools in the evening to enhance his academic skills.
Decades later, Iqbal Halal Foods has emerged as a renowned establishment with more than 300 employees in its wholesale division and three supermarkets: one in midtown Toronto, the second in Mississauga and the third in Ajax, with more stores to follow. Malek is a hard-working, honest CEO who is all praises for his team and prays for the strength and knowledge to continue doing good work for the community at large.
“I have been very fortunate to be able to partner with some of the best talented businessmen in the industry. My team has been very supportive and has stood by my decisions, leading to success in the business.” says CEO Iqbal Malek.
Iqbal Halal Foods management strongly believes in giving back to the community by sponsoring various non-profit and service organizations like the police department, fire department, local hospitals, public schools, different youth sports and science programs, Ontario Science Centre, Christmas Tree Food Basket, Food Banks, local community programs, and more.
