Sandwich stores serve up Halal meat
BACON and ham are off the menu after two of Bolton’s Subway sandwich stores have become Halal outlets.
The move means they no longer serve pork on their submarine sandwiches.
The other meats they use have to be prepared according to Islamic law.
Subway franchisee Deirdre Anderson, who operates the stores in
Newport Street and Derby Street, said: “We decided to convert these two
stores to Halal following demand from customers.
“Subway aims to cater for the whole community and we are happy to offer subs that everyone can enjoy.”
The products no longer served will be substituted with alternative items such as turkey ham.
The stores are the first in Bolton to become Halal but others across the country are already following the practice.
All the meat used in Halal stores has been prepared according to the rules of Halal.
Subway’s four other stores in Bolton – in Bradshawgate in the town
centre, Blackburn Road, Astley Bridge, at Middlebrook Retail Park,
Horwich, and at Burnden Retail Park, Manchester Road – have not
switched to Halal products.
