Waiter, there’s a pig in my chicken!

A well presented and rather disturbing bit of investigative journalism about the added ingredients that may be in our chicken products. It is another example of where the interests of the Muslim community and the general public coincide for the common good.

The Halal Revolution

A good article from the Middle East Hotelier, recognising that there is a Halal food revolution taking place in the Hotel industry. The article points out that the strategic move to make is to convert to completely Halal, because that means that you can serve the whole market.

Quick continues its implantation in Algeria

Here is a fast food chain that is ‘adapting its menu’ to meet the demand for Halal meat in Algeria. But being the ‘number 3’ hamburger chain in Europe we would hope their franchisees would realise the potential of turning their outlets Halal to include the millions of muslims across Europe and travelling to Europe as their customers.
