There’s a new trend on the horizon and if it’s something you’re already on top of, or a change you want to make, Upper Crust Enterprises can help with both! Halal certified food is on the rise and this is another trend we are in front of with our Halal Certified Panko.
Bloomberg.com recently published an article “Halal is a hit with millenials; sales up by a third since 2010”, which outlines the increasing rise in popularity of Halal prepared food and its expanding niche.
Halal Certified Panko
All of Upper Crust Enterprises Panko is Halal certified, which is a perfect replacement for standard bread crumbs, especially if you’re considering adding more Halal certified items to your menu. Our authentic Japanese Panko and Tempura Batter products are Halal Certified, and also GMO Free. Each certification monitors different aspects of the ingredients and the process to make sure it is being done correctly and also ensures the food items are produced in a way that is clean, safe and respectful, in compliance with Halal requirements.
Upper Crust Enterprises’ Halal Certified Panko and Tempura Batter mixes are versatile and can be used in many different menu applications:

Can I know how I order halal Panko?
Shawn, sorry for the late reply. We sell our Upper Crust Enterprises Panko through food service distributors in large 20 lb bags primarily to restaurant chefs. All of our Panko is Halal certified. We do not sell our Upper Crust Enterprises Panko in retail grocery stores so the only way to purchase our Panko is through food service distributors. However we do sell a 24 oz cash and carry Panko through Amazon which might be a good option if the large 20 lb bag is too big for your needs.
