For Some, ‘Kosher’ Equals Pure

There are many similarities between Kosher and Halal. The way that Kosher is perceived in the market has a lot of significant parallels to Halal. At this stage, as is shown in the article, Kosher is more of a mainstream product than a religious one. It is very likely that Halal will follow suit in this respect.

KFC’s Halal Trial in the UK

KFC’s Halal Trial in the UK

KFC is continuing to roll out Halal-certified outlets in certain areas of the UK as part of what they call “Our Halal Trial”. This is a significant move within the UK restaurant business, and this has prompted us to put up the relevant page from the KFC website. KFC is clearly making an effort to be sensitive to animal welfare issues, as well as to the sensibilities of their halal consumers by clearly stating that they are only using stunned poultry. Because there are Muslims who prefer not to eat meat from stunned animals, KFC are giving them the option to make their own decision as to whether they want to eat there. By locating the Halal outlets carefully, they are also ensuring that both Halal and non-Halal options remain within easy reach of all their customers. A carefully-considered move that we will watch with interest.
