Saffron Road to Serve Muslim Consumers During Ramadan
Brand Partnering with Whole Foods Market® to Make an Impact Throughout Islam’s Holiest Month

Stamford, CT – July 20, 2011 – It is not often that brands and retailers in the U.S. acknowledge American Muslim consumers and their majorholidays, but occasionally when they do, they see first hand an outpouring of support from that community. With its high-quality products and dedicated team, American Halal Company, Inc and its brand Saffron Road have established an emotional connection with discerning American Muslims consumers.  Given Saffron Road’s mission to better serve the ongoing Halal needs of its American Muslim consumer base, it has big plans to more deeply connect with and better serve its core constituency during the month-long Ramadan festivities in August.

Each night of Ramadan includes festive iftars or breaking of the fasts with family, friends and communities. To help its Muslim consumers celebrate, Saffron Road is partnering with Whole Foods Market to host several blog posts and offer shoppers chances to win free Saffron Road products and a $100 Whole Foods Market gift card on the grocer’s Whole Story Blog.
“Support for Halal foods, and in particular our brand Saffron Road, during Ramadan from Whole Foods Market on a national, regional and corporate level is going to be a huge deal among many otherwise disenfranchised Muslim communities. We anticipate an outpouring of support and purchases by the thousands of American Muslims who will flock into Whole Foods Market stores,” says Adnan Durrani, CEO of Saffron Road. “This will be the first time a major grocery chain in the U.S. acknowledges Ramadan in this way on a national level. Considering Saffron Road’s products are available in over 90% of Whole Foods Market stores nationwide, this is a major positive move forward for addressing the needs of the American Halal consumer all over the U.S.”

Saffron Road will also collaborate with Halal food expert, Yvonne Maffei of the popular blog, My Halal Kitchen, to bring consumers Ramadan-related tips and recipes to prepare for suhoor and iftar meals throughout the season.

“Never before has it been so easy for the Halal consumer to reach for convenient, healthy andcompletely Halal meals to make at-home dining alone or in small groups something special and easy,” says Yvonne Maffei of My Halal Kitchen. “Many of Saffron Road’s products are easy to incorporate into the iftar experience or add to them. New frozen chicken items like the Chicken Tenders are wonderful for the kids or to add some heartiness to an otherwise boring salad. The broth varieties coming out soon will make Halal cooking even easier as the first on the market that Muslim shoppers can trust in quality and authenticity.”

When watching Italian television, is that you follow with addiction is that you look at it with the intention of highlighting weaknesses and superficiality, it may be hard to imagine something different. Maybe we would understand each other, but it is hard to say exactly what . Since viewers are not told that you have the creativity of those who, by profession, working behind the scenes and designs. For example, and I would like to tell you, I was having dinner the other night watching French TV.
Small necessary premise: I also like many of you for years I had left the TV , even when I lived in Italy, I had switched off permanently and with joy. Then, finding abroad (when I go to Berlin partitaper) in my apartment working on a furnished huge television looking at me slyly. I switched on to improve my language skills and I discovered that there may be interesting broadcasts, good movies not interrupted by advertising and broadcast not only in the pay channels, reports on the history or literature of the 900 ... I mean, at the end rather than an exercise in language has become a useful pleasure. Now that I moved to France, I've got the TV for you, to tell you something from the crackling pages of this blog.
As I was saying the other night, doing dig ng, I ended up on my favorite channel, Arte , a Franco-German channelprogramming from the very interesting , I was following with passion even when I was in Germany. They were sending a report entitled Rondes et belles , the theme was beauty in the models in the flesh and was told to carry out a kind of contest to become professional models for what are called "plus size".
Inizialm body I feared the worst, I do not like that obesity is treated spettacolarizzante hate the feeling of being in front of a TV of pain and derision at the same time. In fact, I soon realized that I did not believe in the Italian TV never attended a festival of faces and bodies so different from the standard, so far away from the touch-up surgery or Photoshop, so real and true and I liked what I saw was new to me!
In addition to the competition, and to explore the subject of fashionable plus-size fashion designers showing some German trasferitesi in London and working in this field, have shown parts of a thorough interview with the creator of the campaign and bubble bath soaps  Where which expressed their the desire to enact ordinary women to advertise suitable creams aimed at all types of beauty , maybe not even that of women or girls r more ispondenti fees to a market that smooths and flattens.
Some of these photos were taken from the other by an established artist, photographer, Annie Leibovitz, (also known for being the companion of the renowned intellectual Susan Sontag).
Afterwards, once this service, have an interesting broadcast dedicated to thedance company " Dance Massive "by Juan Miguel Mas founded in 1996, the first dancer weighs 130kg.
I assure you that even here there was nothingridicolizzante, indeed. The issue of obesity, taken seriously and told with great seriousness and transport in fragments of interviews with members of the corps de ballet of this company, has been treated anything but superficial.
Some of these dancers have in fact reported in the specific disease that affects the metabolism and the resulting physical difficulties in everyday life, such as the psychological not feel accepted by society and then even from themselves. I assure you, however, observed that if there is no room to dance to indulge in pathetic pietism: the lightness, the poetry, the emotion that caused me to look on some of their choreographies can not tell easily. I found good and beautiful!
I then had the feeling that the pipe market was coming to tell me as to other viewers a great life lesson, an exercise in understanding and appreciation of differences, an exercise of freedom of thought and art made ​​without undue emphasis. It was to show their work, in which the size of excellence, overcoming the stereotype, these artists have found it possible to move us even finding yourself and accepting your body sometimes sick, sometimes simply just outside the standards that the market imposes.
But I came up with our television, and I wondered if we would ever be able to see something similar . So much truth, much reality in the faces and human beings, true, recounting with great dignity, professionalism and passion of their experiences, their art, without being ridiculed or reduced to a freak show.
I've come up with Pina Bausch, the more I know I quote, is one of my heroes, I thought his company of dancers who continue to dance while being grown up or older with her without stopping to talk about the stage, I thought their bodies so far from the standards, and so expressive, so exciting and beautiful.
I was reminded of the history of painting, the Madonna by Leonardo chubby moms-to meat tormented the models of Lucien Freud (great painter, who died a few days ago.)
I thought the beauty of African women, tall and stout, that populate my neighborhood where I live here, whose shapes are accented by brightly colored clothing so as to be an ode to the vital energy regardless. When you see them dancing are light, fast and happy, they are accepted fact, not just pose the question, no self-psychological torture, clothes of all sizes and living differences, all right by us!
I thought (professional deformation, is still an art historian!) To the Paleolithic Venus, images of the beauty of mother earth, a symbol of femininity and life and as such full of matter, of flesh and roundness. So, forgive me if I'm bored, but I just wanted to tell you how, from a normal night television, I went to a flight of fancy for me, inspiring .
When the television is well structured, I really think it can be a source of information and open horizons, the source of reasoning and not of intellectual slumber.
For entertaining there is no need to impoverish the content. In Italy they take us for fools indeed, suffer Tamarreide and Big Brother watching channels like this, but enough of art to realize that the TV we must not throw it away, indeed.
You simply take it back, do not you think? Do not we deserve the quality of a TV?
I greet you recommending this video , soundtrack recurring transmission of Art which I have spoken. It's called Give me the food , and the singer (Romanian-German nationality) is Miss Platnum. Happy listening!
