UK: Euro Quality Lambs wins Family Business of the Year award

Euro Quality Lambs is delighted to win Family Business of the Year at the inaugural Islam Channel Business Awards in London. Held at the prestigious Hilton Metropole hotel on Edgeware Road the event attracted over 500 guests including MPs and foreign dignitaries. The award followed a gruelling 2-stage determination process with industry recognised judges scrutinising applications and interviewing businesses, really putting everyone through their paces.

EQL MD Rizvan Khalid remarked ‘We are delighted to win this award and I’m grateful to the judges for their endorsement. Above all this is a team effort and I’m extremely proud of my father, mother, cousins, wife, brother, sisters, uncles and family members who have worked tirelessly and energetically for the business. The family history starts from a village in Pakistan to a village in Ireland, where I was born, to now a village in England. If there’s one message I want to leave guests with it’s this – if you want quality Halal grass-fed British lamb don’t forget the Muslim family from Shropshire Hills.’

The awards ceremony was broadcast live on Islam Channel on Friday 1-March. Images and highlights can be seen online at
