America’s Shrinking Food Wraps


American supermarkets are epics of excess: it often seems like every
item in the store comes in a “Jumbo” size or has “Bonus!” splashed
across the label. But is it possible that the amount of food Americans
are buying is, in fact… shrinking?

Muslims not prepared to declare cloning ‘halal’

Muslims not prepared to declare cloning ‘halal’

The issue of cloning certainly goes well beyond whether or not an animal is stunned before Halal slaughter and the method used in the slaughtering of it. This also comes under the category of ‘ethical’ which is also now a much broader issue with the production of food today. As this question becomes better researched from a Halal perspective perhaps the wisdom of the Islamic shariah will bring clarity on this for everyone questioning whether it is ethical to produce cloned animals for human consumption. Perhaps this is an issue to be addressed to the Shariah scholars and scientists at the upcoming International Halal Market Conference being held on the 16-17 August in Brunei Darussalam.

The World’s Top 20 Public Intellectuals

The World’s Top 20 Public Intellectuals

What I find interesting about this ranking is that at first glance one is impressed at how the top 10 intellectuals voted for are all Muslim. Then you read that 500,000 ballots were cast in 4 weeks, which also is impressive. However, when you carry on reading the article look and see how the candidates themselves were instrumental in campaigning to put themselves into the top 10 through their own publications and websites! This is the power of the press and the internet.

A T Kearney issue report on Addressing the Muslim Market

A T Kearney issue report on Addressing the Muslim Market

“Since Muslims are the fastest growing consumer segment in the world, any company that is not considering how to serve them is missing a significant opportunity to affect both its top-and bottom-line growth. Deciding to serve the Muslim consumer will depend on the ease with which the company can address this market and the opportunity versus the cost of doing so. Although there are political and social pitfalls to consider, the opportunities are so vast and far-reaching that they greatly outweigh the risks. With many of the world’s consumer segments reaching a saturation point, the Muslim consumer is fast becoming a new outlet to build a base for future growth.”


While this quote from A T Kearney’s report, “Addressing the Muslim Market” is not necessarily anything new to many of the Halal sector players, the fact that this report has appeared in the mainstream is itself a clear confirmation of what many of us have been saying for years.

Hannover University ‘Stunning versus Slaughter’ research report

This is a translation of the study conducted by the Hannover University in 1978 on the effects of stunning and Halal slaughter on sheep and calves. It provides a strong argument that the Halal method is effectively painless for the animals, as opposed to the captive bolt stunning method which caused measurable trauma.
