ENA Meatpacking

About Us

Ena Meat Packing was founded by Zatibey Kucukkarca and his brother Ali Kucukkarca in 1989. Ena first began out as a small halal slaughter house in Whippany New Jersey, but after a devastating fire they expanded and relocated to Paterson NJ. We have been in business almost 23 years. We are the LARGEST Halal Meat slaughterhouse in the United States of America. ENA is a 100% HALAL Slaughterhouse. We slaughter animals under the ISLAMIC LAW. We DO NOT stun. Stunning is not considered Halal. We supply wholesalers and small stores and markets in the tri-state area. During the week we serve the wholesalers, and on Saturdays we are open to the public. Custom Kill is on Saturdays.

Since 1980

, not only serving as the VP, but also managing the plant, and even working as a butcher. Saffet is also responsible for the livestock that comes through ENA. After months of travelling back and forth to Texas for auctions, he made an important decision for his family, and for his business and community. The only way to be sure of the health and quality of the livestock coming into the plant fully, was to oversee it himself indefinitely. In 1992, Saffet, with his wife, and son moved to Lometa, Texas where he bought a ranch for Ena’s livestock. After years in Texas, he noticed a shortage of halal meat in his area, so he decided it was time to expand and co-founded Mills County Meat Co. Goldwaite, Texas.
