Dear brother in Islam
Wa'laikumus Salam

To work in a company or a shop where Haraam foods are delivered or
Served is unlawful. A Muslim must avoid such unlawful jobs. There are countless Halaal jobs in the world to do if one is determined and sincere. Allah has taken the responsibility of livelihood and provision for every living being, as He says in the Holy Qur'an ''And no one is there crawling on the Earth but on God rests its provision and He knows where it stays and where it is reposed. All is there in manifest Book.''
(Ch:11 V: 6)
Undoubtedly, Allah means in this verse by 'livelihood' Halal livelihood. So it became clear that every one can get Halal livelihood in every age as statement of Qur'an is for all the times. And, therefore none is allowed Islamically to do Haram jobs.

Thanking You
