Two Causes For Concern Regarding Morrisons

TWO CAUSES FOR CONCERN REGARDING  MORRISONS

1. MORRISONS have instructed their Meat Departments NOT put Meat Codes on Lamb or Pork or Chicken or Turkey… in fact only their Beef now displays the EU Meat Code.

WHY are Morrisons leaving the Meat Codes off of most of their  packaged meat??? 

TODAY I have been told by the Food Standards Authority (FSA) that this breaks the EU Regulations,

which state that ALL Packaged Meat MUST carry the EU Meat Code & Country of Slaughter.

 

If anyone doubts this, or if you just want to have your say to Simon Tudor, who is the person at the FSA who is responsible for halal, but admits very little… Tel: 0207 276 8339.

 

Here is an example of how Morrisons puts the EU Meat Code on their Beef (ONLY)

 

 

2. This morning I have found out from one of our Members that some MORRISONS Branches are selling LAMB Meat Code 6057

This 6057 Meat Code means that the meat is from Randall Parker Foods, Andover

… A HALAL CERTIFIED SLAUGHTERHOUSE & CUTTING PLANT!

 

WHY are Morrisons selling meat from a Halal Slaughterhouse & a Halal Cutting Plant???

 

Proof:
 RANDALL PARKER FOODS clearly say on their website…

All our Halal lamb products are guaranteed to have been produced and processed in accordance with Islamic rites as well as our own high animal welfare standards. We are approved by the Halal Food Authority and we have been producing Halal products for many years. We are an established and reliable producer of Halal lamb for both the home and international markets.
Our processing is carried out by dedicated and fully qualified Halal slaughtermen with supervision by our own welfare team and UK Government veterinarians.
We implement strict codes of practice and policies to protect both animal welfare and the Halal standard.
We acknowledge the application of Islamic rules and principles may differ between communities and we will be happy to discuss the opportunities we have to meet your requirements.
It is vital to us that our Muslim consumers can buy and enjoy with total peace of mind.

RING MORRISONS HQ & COMPLAIN – 0845 6116111

Careful who you give you details to – I have crossed paths with Muslims there in the past -notably Madge Farid who was most rude. Also the Customer Care Manager, Claire Thornton told me that Daniel Armstrong is a Manager, but today I found out from Mohammad that he is not – he is actually working under Claire!

WHY cant Morrisons’ Staff be straight with me when I ring?

I aim to put all this in writing to…

Wm Morrison Supermarkets PLC, 
Chief Executive: Mr Dalton Philips,
Hilmore House,
BRADFORD,
BD3 7DL
Tel:  01274 261000,    0845 611 6111,
Email: dalton.philips@morrisonsplc.co.uk

ALSO Ring Your Local Branch and Tell Meat Dept. these two things…

All meat should show Meat Codes & to watch out for rogue packets of meat that are wrapped differently from usual -especially Meat Code No.6057

Find your Local Morrisons Branch Tel.No. by adding your postcode to their Store Finder here:

http://www.morrisons.co.uk/Store-finder/

 

You may also want to complain to DEFRA about the overproduction of halal meat as I did today. Tel: 08459 335577

I spoke to Geoff Webdale who’s been responsible for Animal Welfare in England since 2007

I told him that some of my Members are Farmers, who have changed abattoirs, because they couldn’t bear to see their cattle literally climbing the walls with their heads half hanging off.

Geoff cold-heartedly said,
“Well that shouldn’t be happening – they should have been tethered to hold them still!”

That just about sums the situation up really –

Does anyone care enough in Britain to stop this outdated 7th Century barbarity in our 21st Century abattoirs?

I thought Morrisons cared… until today.

The Care Team Manager, Claire Thornton gave me the distinct impression that she is fed up with hearing from me (I last rang just before Easter).

I told her that not labelling any meat properly with Meat Codes was against the EU Regulations, but she said Morrisons would not have made that move without checking it thoroughly first.

I also reported that we know they are selling unlabelled halal lamb in some stores.  Claire said –

“We do not sell any halal meat, other than New Zealand Lamb, which is clearly labelled halal.”

I replied saying –
“No… what you are probably selling is the cheap cast off halal lamb, that has failed the halal inspection, by having a blemish… or maybe there was a spillage… so it is rejected and called haram; …but has still been faced to Mecca, dedicated to Allah & Ritually Slaughtered – probably without stunning – certainly without adequate stunning.
Claire made no comment.
I asked Claire to ring me back when she finds out about the need for proper labelling.
Claire refused to ring me back, but promised to send me an email within 4 working days.

 

When I rang back in the afternoon to tell them that Meat Codes on all Packaged Meat was not an option, Claire Thornton was unavailable to speak to me, but I was reminded that she would email me.

I have had a soft spot for Morrisons in the past, as they are the only supermarket that say they refuse to sell halal… but this is the umpteenth time I have found them out.
So I hope you will all remind Claire Thornton that we are all checking the Meat Codes at Morrisons in the hope that we find meat from one of their own traditional abattoirs, for example:

2092            Farmers Boy            Bradford,        West Yorkshire

I spent five hours in all on the phone and finished off at 4:30pm by ringing TRADING STANDARDS, as advised by my MP and by DEFRA and by the FSA.

TRADING STANDARDS Tel: 0845 40405 (where I ring most days to give an update on more products that I am finding that are Certified Halal, but not labelled as such.)

Today it was MORRISONS and NATURE VALLEY that I brought to the attention of TRADING STANDARDS.

I heard this morning on BBC News that Nature Valley – which has a tiny Halal Certification mark on the back… are now to be the Official Cereal Bars of the 2012 Olympics!

 

WHY is there no mention in the advertising that the bars are certified halal by the Halal Food Authority?

 

 

WHY CHOOSE A HALAL PRODUCT?   Oh Yes… I seem to remember this news item published in January 2010…

BOYCOTT HALAL!

62 Responses to Two Causes For Concern Regarding Morrisons

  1. Gerald says:

    One simple tactic that any member of the public who is fed up of this halal shenanigans can do is to rub some pork fat on their hands and touch as many of the halal labelled packets as possible and then to telephone the management from a public phone booth and inform them about what you have done.

  2. Arshid Mahmood says:

    Wtf is red tractor shit?n all u pig eating fuckers halal is the only way forward.also ur daddy jews slaughtr exactly da same way..why dont u speak about kosher????

    • BoycottHalal says:

      ANSWER TO ARSHID MAHMOOD
      The facts are clear – for the Jews kosher is an end in itself, but for the muslims halal is a means to an end… the end being Islamic takeover by stealth.
      This campaign is about Freedom of Choice – for those who do not want halal products.
      What is wrong with that? Surely it does not warrant the insults and bad language that your reply consists of?
      Non-Muslims have a right to know what they are buying and at the moment many non-Muslims are completely unaware that they are buying products that profit Islam and they are unwittingly eating UNLABELLED meat that has been dedicated to a foreign god – Allah which has been slaughtered without proper stunning.
      Another reason we focus on opposing halal rather than kosher is that the declining numbers slaughtered for kosher is minuscule in comparison to the rising hundreds of millions of livestock now enduring halal slaughter in Non-Muslim countries. Are muslims providing non-Muslims with Pork products in Islamic countries??? Surely fairness should prevail?
      BOYCOTT HALAL NOW and Demand clear labelling of ALL halal products including non-food products that contain halal animal bi-products so Shoppers can make a reasoned choice.

      • Yusuf says:

        FYI. You say that Muslims want this to be “the beginning of the end” and that is why you hate Muslims and Islam. You are so blind from the truth. It’s the supermarkets that have brainwashed you. It’s so convenient for them to sell Halal to all the consumers. Muslims will only eat Halal, non-Muslims will eat anything, hence kill two birds with one stone and save on cost etc. just like New Zealand lamb is virtually 100% halal and exported throughout the world and they have captured the whole market. I’m afraid you don’t have a say my friend. Get real you dealing with the big boys who incidentally are mostly owned by the Jews (Tesco, sainsburys, m&s, etc).

        • BoycottHalal says:

          The Fact is Yusef that if shoppers & consumers choose NOT to buy halal products and services – this will reduce demand and slow production.
          Businesses need our custom… even the big ones. You, and these halal compliant companies, need to realise that Non-muslims will NOT eat anything!
          We have decided to refuse to buy halal certificated products – that is our choice.
          Note that we do not – your QUOTE: hate muslims and islam… What we hate is the fact that Unlabelled halal certified products are being foisted on shoppers & consumers without their knowledge. Everyone has the right to make a reasoned choice when they go shopping or eat out… yet we find that many companies are not telling us that the meat on sale is from animals that were dedicated to Allah and ritually slaughtered according to Islamic Rites… We only find out when eg. in Europe we check the EU Meat Codes which makes all carcasses and packaged meat traceable to the source. Clearly this mis-selling of halal meat, as if it were traditional meat, is not only Wrong, but also reveals a more sinister move; for how will muslims know that the meat on sale is halal, unless it has been clearly labelled as such? Clearly the halal authorities and companies will make more money by foisting unlabelled halal meat mainstream – but this violates the Human Rights of ALL shoppers and consumers… as is clearly shown in SECTION 9 of the UK HUMAN RIGHTS ACT here…
          Article 9 Human Rights Act. regarding Freedom of Conscience – should give us the right to religious and secular freedom, ie. to not be forced to participate in religious rites.
          Dedicating this meat to a god violates this right: hence there is forced participation in another’s religion without consent.
          Also Jews, Buddhists, Hindus & Sikhs are forbidden by their religions to eat Halal Food…
          So where is our religious freedom?
          UK Human Rights Blog
          http://ukhumanrightsblog.com/incorporated-rights/articles-index/article-9/

          ARTICLE 9 – The European Convention on Human Rights

          Freedom to manifest one’s religion or beliefs shall be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are necessary in a democratic society in the interests of public safety, for the protection of public order, health or morals, or the protection of the rights and freedoms of others.

          We will not be silent. We WILL Boycott Halal. We will never submit to Islam. That is our choice.

        • Trevor says:

          Actually Yusuf, not all non-muslims will eat anything.
          Halal slaughter requires you offer a prayer to Allah. Allah is NOT the god of the Bible, it is a pagan deity.
          Practising Christians are forbidden to eat things sacrificed to idols and that is precisely what Halal is, something sacrificed to an idol.
          Muslims on the other hand can eat anything if there is nothing Halal.
          That is a fact readily obtained from a reading of the Koran which, I have noticed, very few muslims have ever read.
          Try reading it.

        • jay says:

          the Jews are not known for murdering people, the Muslims are.

      • S. Hennessy says:

        I am a non muslim, British , white 3 children. My eldest is british mixed race and a fully practicing muslim! Bless him. The muslim /halal issue is not the problem here. When we lived in london we bought halal meat all the time because it was fresh and not in plastic. We have since moved to Buckinghamshire . Halal is not so widely available but I have known for years Most New Zealand lamb is halal.
        The two issues here are
        1. We are a meat eating society no matter the faith . Everyone is entitled to their choice. I applaud my son for his beliefs, I wish that I had such commitment. We read all the time of horse -gate, animal welfare, dodgy meat being pumped up with goodness knows what! Crammed chickens, trailered transportation of animals, no natural daylight in warehouses etc etc.

        Unscrupulous halal slaughterhouses (ie those that do not follow Islamic law with regard to slaughter will a) meet their maker one day b) should be thoroughly checked by the Islamic Foundation of approval.. This is not a ‘take over of society by Islam. Such comments disgust me. Don’t forget I am not a muslim. THIS is FACTORY FARMING IN A HIGH CONSUMER SOCIETY.. Yes most big institutions are in some way owned by people of different religions… So what??? We all like meat and if you check out hundreds of YouTube videos, most of is would not like to see the reality of farming. On a basic level, do we not take eggs away from hens?? How awful. Would it be ok to take our young away from us?? Butchering is a dirty business, we take life to feed ourselves. I could go on for hours but at least Muslims and Jews take time and commitment to pray for the animal… It’s none of our business. And I get some comfort from meat eating even though I am not muslim. That said… There are good Muslims and bad Muslims . Just like the old faithful Christians , loading up their christmas trees with consumables, scoffing chocolate eggs and depicting cute Easter bunnies… Don’t remember reading any of that in the bible!! We just accept it! With regard to funding terrorism comments, is this about meat or about a deeper need to infect our minds???
        2) in this day and age everyone expects to be informed about the choice they make. This is our right. If MORRISONS decide not to label their food, more fool them because most people do t care and just want cheap food in a time of austerity all round. They would probably get more customers but they haven’t figured that out yet. But the absolute bottom line is that no matter what the mistakes made by consumer s or companies.. Making a connection between bad farming practices and a particular religion is RACIST and I won’t stand for that. Approach the bad practice farmers directly not the religion. (Ps: don’t forget I personally an NOT A MUSLIM/ISLAM. Leave that out of it…yes Morrisons , label your damn food and stop giving people a stick to beat you with!!!

        • BoycottHalal says:

          To question the source of our food is NOT RACIST. Muslims are NOT a race. Following Islam is a matter of belief and has nothing to do with ethnicity at all.
          To insist that ONLY MUSLIMS can be employed as slaughtermen and meat workers IS divisive & prejudiced and is causing marginalisation of meat workers.
          It amazes me that you are critical of conventional meat practices, yet seem to think that a prayer makes Halal practices ok.
          Note that there is no prayer said for kosher which is Not a Ritual Slaughter process at all – it is a Religious Slaughter tradition involving much stricter guidelines than halal including a minimum SEVEN YEAR apprenticeship before the trainee is allowed to apply for their first Slaughterman’s Licence and begin working alongside an experienced shochet in a Kosher abattoir.
          We disagree with halal – based on Scientific Evidence from an EU funded FOUR YEAR STUDY by European Scientists from many EU Countries called DIALREL.
          A Four Year Study of Ritual Slaughter was carried out by European Scientists for the EU and they came to the conclusion that halal Ritual Slaughter is unnecessarily cruel.
          Their findings are fully explained in the paper (included next) and they also made a video of evidence which you can watch here…
          This Video is by Leading European Scientists Condemns HALAL RITUAL SLAUGHTER
          This outrage is going on in many countries of the world.

      • Loulou says:

        I was in Morrisons yesterday, there were legs of lamb on special offer, some said New Zealand, some said United Kingdom on them. They all looked the same. I believe they were all the same. A young butcher…well thats debatable, was filling the fridge with more, my sister asked him are there any more ENGLISH lamb, because I dont want to buy Halal, he said none of this is Halal. I said to him ALL NZ LAMB IS SLAUGHTERED HALAL. He said no, Morrisons butcher it themselves. I said no I am not talking about butchering, I am talking about slaughtering, you dont slaughter NZ lamb in the UK, he said yes we do. I said so Morrisons bring lambs from New Zealand to the UK live and kill them here, he said yes! Sorry, but I replied thats bollocks! I know you dissaprove of foul language but sometimes its more appropriate!

    • B says:

      Please read the Lotus Sutra interpreted by Nichiren Daishonin, it shows a gentler and kinder way to live. I don’t want any prays over my foods and I don’t want animals to endure more suffering and I bet if there was no other food around you would eat pork.

    • John stout says:

      As a christian I should have a choice as to whether or not I eat Muslim or indeed Jewish food, at the moment there is no choice as it is unknown if any meat is halal, kosher or not and that is just unacceptable, it’s not racist or rude it’s just the truth

    • Papa says:

      Kosher look after themselves and dont DEMAND different special rules like
      Muslim’s do!

  3. Linda says:

    I used to pride myself on being British and part of a multicultural tolerant society which frowned upon xenophobic antics against religious groups. What you are writing on your website is complete filth!!! Halal meet is not cruel, it is actually more humane to kill an animal the kosher or halal route than stun it. Stunning an animal actually paralyses it, it is completely paralysed. Anyhow you are just another intent on causing further divide between communities. British Muslims and Jews who more or less slaughter meat the same way do not wish to islamasize the uk or create a second Jewish state. I see remnant pre 1940s type philosophies emerging in minorities of the British Public… Shame on you can you not devote your time to something more constructive like helping homeless people, mentally ill, the elderly…. Why this??? Complete waste of time and quite an attempt to damage communities!!

    • BoycottHalal says:

      ANSWER TO LINDA
      What is written on this site is sadly the TRUTH. Just check out your supermarket shelves and the muslim websites – you could begin here…
      Halal Monitoring Services
      http://salim7860.tripod.com/id5.html
      NOTE that to be halal the meat must come from UNSTUNNED animals – any stunning must not render the animal unconscious.
      Please take off the blinkers Linda and know the TRUTH – and then you can begin to understand how many Non-Muslim Shoppers are unwittingly buying halal products and thereby unwittingly funding Islamic ends… including Terrorism…
      Halal Funds Terrorists: ZAKAT
      http://www.boycotthalal.com/halal-funds-terrorists-zakat/
      NOTE that Jews are not flooding our food chain by stealth with kosher products – Jews want kosher for themselves and their own community – Jews are not aiming at getting us all to eat kosher meat or kosher products… On the other hand Muslims aim to get us all eating halal products and from the outset the World Halal Forum have clearly written out their World Halal Forum Charter. Read this for more info…

      For your information the reason that my reply to you is delayed is that I have been devoting my time to looking after the sick and dying – on the day you wrote your response I was at my father’s funeral after nursing him at his home for 2 months with metastatic lung cancer. I am presently helping a 57 year old man with Aspergers Syndrome at his home where he is recovering from major heart surgery he had on the 18th December… and I will continue to help him in the absence of NHS care in the community for the next 10 months at least which is his estimated recovery time.
      So it seems that every point of your reply is false and lacks basic understanding of the Truth and the facts about the BOYCOTT HALAL Campaign and the people behind this pressure group.
      Please wake up Linda and know the Truth!

    • Well yet another brainless comment.
      Take this example – You go to the dentist for an extraction, and he says would you like me to freeze this or would you like me to take it out without any anaesthetic?
      Even a half wit would dismiss the latter!!
      Or better still, let me tie you down ( or upside down ) as the case may be then slit your throat and see if you think that it hurts, or if you would not be terrified when you knew what was about to happen!!!! I’ll bet you would be ‘crapping’ yourself silly. But don’t worry about the animals suffering, that obviously does not matter!
      If you can’t think of anything better to write then don’t write at all!

  4. amad says:

    As a consumer who does not wish to purchase halal meat. . .i feel that it is unfair for supermarkets to try and hide the fact that the meat they sell is halal. i refuse to buy it and i ask when eating out if the meat supplied is halal. if they cant answer i dont buy. . .choose fish or pork. . . we should have a choice if u want halal meat go to a halal butcher. if u want kosher meat go to a kosher butcher. .supermarkets should not enforce halal products on us. .we should be able to choose.

    • Adam says:

      all fish is halal so stop buyin fish……

      • BoycottHalal says:

        No – what we Non-Muslims see as halal and what Muslims see as halal are two completely different things.
        Please take off your halal blinkers and try to see the Non-muslim perspective if you possibly can.
        I will not be quiet as you have the audacity to put the arabic halal label on my Fish, Water, Fruit, Vegetables, Air – They are no more halal than you are a Christian.
        Halal is an Islamic word that is used by Muslims to signify what is permissible for them according to Sharia Law.
        We are not living under Sharia Law, because we are not muslims and therefore the word halal is a foreign word we do not need to use – ever; furthermore we do not recognise the need to follow muslim rules for living… We do not recognise the need for Islamic dogma at all.
        What we see as halal and what Muslims see as halal are two completely different things.
        For example, Muslims will say that water is halal, but it is not halal for us – unless the Water Company is muslim owned and all profit for its sale is going to Islam. Or unless the water is bottled and sold as halal certified. Only then will we recognise the proper warning of a foreign halal sign and NOT buy it.
        Muslims will say that vegetables are halal, but they are not halal for us… unless they have been packaged and certified halal or are for sale at a Halal Certified Food outlet or have been grown on a Halal Farm in halal bonemeal – NOTE that many Farms are being bought up by muslims now in Britain and Europe and Halal is also linked to GM Crops and the use of aborted Human Embryos (human embryonic kidney cells) to test flavour enhancers eg. For Pepsi.
        We reject halal products & services. We hate the way that muslims are tampering with our food – Genetically modifying it and messing with the DNA – Oh yes – we have seen that Club Halal has even halal certified DNA for their warped scientific experimentation with food – here is the certificate…
        CLUB HALAL – DNA
        http://www.clubhalal.be/en-entreprises-31318.html
        Muslims will say that some meat, after halal Ritual Slaughter, does not meet the grade & so is not halal; this is given a different arabic label – haram – and this rejected ritually slaughtered meat will then outrageously be discarded into the mainstream Food Chain … but for us this meat is still HALAL – it has been prepared in the way that Muslim Meat should be prepared… it has been dedicated to a foreign god and slaughtered unstunned or ultra-low amperage stunned and is not Traditional Meat – for us it is still Halal Ritually Slaughtered meat.
        Some chocolate includes halal bi-products eg. halal rennet; other brands do not, but have been tampered with and are halal certified.
        We boycott all halal products & services, because we do not want to encourage the production of more… by not buying halal it will reduce demand and hopefully production as companies see their profits fall.
        So… we aim NOT TO BUY from any company or organisation that promotes or uses Halal products and services. We shall not give our custom to Halal Certified Shops, Restaurants or Food Chains. Our aim is to reduce demand for Halal Certification by avoiding ALL Halal Ritually Slaughtered Meat and all Brands containing Halal Bi-Products.
        Stages of halal (Boycott all 3);
        1. Company becomes halal compliant, seeks to appease muslims. (boycott)
        2. Company/product/service becomes halal certified. (very serious boycott)
        3. Mark is displayed on Product/service. (Avoid at ALL Cost!)

        • Amar says:

          First of all, I am a muslim. Secondly, you are severally misinformed of what we consider halal or haram.

          I was actually contemplating whether or not I should actually reply to this message because it is utterly stupid.

          ALL water is halal, whether it is supplied by muslims jews christians or atheists. This goes for all vegetables and also all animals that live in the sea. As ALL of these things are halal. It will be absolutely pointless to label them as such. It would be like labeling every every apple with the word “food”. So if u truly want to boycott halal products, your going to struggle.

          You have mentioned aborted embryos used in muslim farms. Abortion similarly to chritianity is not allowed A.K.A haram (unless its harmful for the mother to keep the baby). So to use it for our crops is, again, a bit of a stupid statement

          Halal certified restaurants, takeaways etc have evolved due to the demand of halal products. These places have deliberately advertised for the muslim market. In a highly muslim poulated area. A majority, If not all of their customers are likely to be muslim. So boycotting these will not make a dint in their business.

          But yeah… Good luck!

          • BoycottHalal says:

            FIRSTLY – Thank You for your comment Amar – We on this website are not Followers of Islam.
            SECONDLY, we are not Muslims and have a different mindset to you and we do not add Arabic words at all to anything.
            If you want to categorise water as halal, you can call it halal – but don’t expect us to agree with you, because we have no use for arabic words at all.
            As far as we are concerned – Water is water; Air is air; Milk is milk; Fish are fish.
            However, when money starts to change hands for unnecessary halal certificates on these natural drinks and food; and when self-appointed muslims set themselves up as ‘halal authorities’ who collect money from businesses and make them sign ‘Non-disclosure Agreements’ before they can have the certificate they have already paid for; and when muslims gather together at such meetings as the World Halal Forum and proclaim as their main theme, that they will ‘Send Halal Mainstream in UK & then Europe and then the World’…
            That is when we Non-muslims decide to BOYCOTT HALAL.
            Look – if muslims want to name things as halal – they have freedom of speech and can do that… the problem arises when they start to issue Halal Certificates – that there is no mandate for at all in the Qur’an – and they don’t just issue them – they charge what they like for them which – according to them amounts to $3 Trillion per annum now!
            Where does that collected money go?
            As most of these Halal Authorities are Registered Charities – it is apparent in their stated aim that this money will ONLY go to Islamic ends – not back into the host country’s coffers for everyone. So, what we are saying is – if halal certified products & services are for muslims – why don’t you do what the Jews do and aim it primarily at your own community?
            In most Non-islamic countries Muslims are free to have halal certificates if they want them… as long as they PAY for them – Not us!
            We are Not Followers of Islam and we do not require halal certificates at all – and we sure don’t want to pay for them – at all.
            That is why we Boycott Halal Certified products & services – we do not require them and we do not want to pay for them. Quite simple to understand really isn’t it!
            THIRDLY, Islamic scholars (Ulama) have been involved in scientific discussions involving the developments of biotechnology in many Non-islamic countries, in particular regarding the production of food derived from Halal Certified crops which have been Genetically Modified (GM Crops). We expose this outrage and Boycott the GM products eg. Kelloggs.
            I mentioned aborted embryos in the context of human embryonic kidney cells being used to test flavour enhancers eg. for (halal certified) Pepsi.
            We reject halal products & services and we reject GM & HALAL & Biotechnology. That is our choice.
            Muslims seem to want GM & HALAL & Biotechnology – maybe you have not seen this document…
            GM & HALAL & Biotechnology
            If muslims want to buy these GM Halal Certified products, Biotech Crops & Pepsi – they can if they choose to. We are not stopping you.
            NOTE: We don’t want to buy them – and that is our Freedom of Choice in action.
            FOURTHLY, most halal certified restaurants, takeaways etc. have evolved through the SECRET sale of halal meat that has not been clearly labelled, so Non-muslims have been hoodwinked into eating it unwittingly. I don’t live in a muslim area, but when I check out the source of the meat on sale in my local supermarket – I discover it is from halal slaughterhouses, yet not labelled as such. You can make whatever excuses you want – and so can the manager there… but I’m not interested in your excuses – I just won’t buy it.
            The more followers we get – the more effective this boycott becomes… and I see it is causing quite a stir in Australia now… where one Halal Authority (consisting on One Man who brags he has become a millionaire by selling halal certificates) is now taking five of our friends to Court for speaking out against the Halal Certification Racket…
            So even your FIFTH point is wrong… Boycotting IS making a dint in the Aussie Halal Industry’s profits – and will continue to do so more & more, as our Aussie Membership grows. And we can see no reason why this will not snowball worldwide throughout other Non-Islamic countries of the world as they wake up to this Halal Certification Racket.
            So Yeah… BOYCOTT HALAL!

    I hate having halal forced upon me.

  6. Adam says:

    The amount of lies and anti-islamic propaganda on this site is laughable if it wasn’t being taken seriously by misinformed and misguided some.

    I have only ready the home page and this one and I cannot stress how deluded this person is writing this tripe.

    Buying halal funds terorism? More like this site is funded by EDL. This is someone who doesn’t know a single muslim, doesn’t want to get to know one and twists anything he reads into islam bashing cr@p which he then publishes in this waste of space site.

    I wont list all the lies and cases for anti islam but here are a couple. I really dont want to waste any more time than I have:

    1. “The facts are clear – for the Jews kosher is an end in itself, but for the muslims halal is a means to an end… the end being Islamic takeover by stealth.”

    Seriously? Kosher is exactly the same to Jews as Halal is to Muslims. There are halal butchers and most muslims DO use them. With the muslim growing population (which you clearly oppose to) supermarkets stock halal produce to cater for, in some areas, most of their customers base. Supermarkets do not force halal meat on customers. You HAVE a choice…either buy halal or non halal. Morrisons fresh meat counter does not supply halal meat so why do you have a problem when a company stocks halal produce for its muslim customers? If any moderate citzen cannot see this comment is anti islamic then you are welcome to the views of this crass misguided and utter nonsensical shite on this site.

    2. “Halal funds terrorism”

    You cannot be serious? This guy has somehow linked halal (which means lawful – hence why Tate & Lyle certified their sugar as halal) and Zakat together and came up with the twisted view that it funds terrorism. Zakat in this country is paid to the poor – No if, no buts. This guy has not done any meaningful reasearch into where the Zakat money goes and simply got some material off some website, added a word or two and linked zakat to terrorism. On point 6 of his link on his site that he blatantly lies that fi-sabilillah goes to fund terrism he doesn’t even have the intelligence to find out what it really means. Anyway read this and make your own mind up: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fi_sabilillah

    Like I have mentioned before, there are so many lies but I wont waste too much of my time. I am writing so people can make an informed decision based on facts. Always do your own research and there are ALWAYS two sides to a coin.

    “Every time halal meat gets a mention in the media it gets a complete bashing and public hysteria is the result often fuelled by inaccurate reporting of slaughter methods” (Behalal.org)

    Let me finish by saing this: If you eat meat you are a hypocrite if you preach “ritual Slaughter” is not humane. This practice has been around for centuries and its only until recently stunning has been introduced, in my opinion, mainly to increase production, not for the welfare of the animal.

    Additioanlly majority of certified authorities around the world do ALLOW stunning and the meat is halal as long as the animal is alive when it is slaughtered. This site doesn’t tell you about that does it? http://www.organic-halal-meat.com/article/fatwa-stunning.php

    Please make your own decision and doent rely on shite on this site. Get to know a muslim, understand them – they are human too – they have the same blood as you.

    Thanks for reading.

      Adam you seem to forget that you are NOT on a muslim website here – WE ARE NOT MUSLIMS & WE HAVE THE FREEDOM TO THINK DIFFERENTLY TO YOU!
      I will answer each of your points… BUT unless you take off the muslim mindset that is brainwashing you from seeing other people’s points of view, you will continue to be deluded.
      I do not get paid for administering this website, which is why I do not always have the time to answer straight away or maintain it as well as I would like to.
      BOYCOTT HALAL is NOT affiliated to any Political Party or any other Pressure Group – our members are from all walks of life and many different religions or no religion at all.
      I do have non-extremist Muslim friends – we exchange Christmas Cards and chat from time to time… my son even shares ownership of a London property with a muslim that they let.
      Your assumptions are ridiculous Adam!
      Now Your First point…
      1. How many Jews do you know that eat halal Adam??? You are very wrong to say… QUOTE: Kosher is exactly the same to Jews as Halal is to Muslims. There is a vast difference between the principals of kosher slaughter & the principals of halal slaughter.
      TRAINING – Huge differences here: Jewish slaughtermen do a minimum of a seven year apprenticeship before they can apply for a Licence and begin working in a slaughterhouse.
      Conversely most, if not all, halal slaughterhouses are registered Charities, on the basis that they are Educational Establishments, because muslim slaughtermen get HALF A DAY training before they apply for their Slaughterman’s Licence and learn on the job… it is sheer wickedness to let an untrained person loose to kill animals without proper stunning.
      Jews want kosher meat primarily for their own community – BUT Muslims want us all eating halal and are purposely aiming at certifying our well known Brands.
      I have been checking the EU Meat Codes in our local supermarkets for 3 years and I have not once found a Kosher Meat Code source, but every single time I have checked EU meat codes in many different supermarkets and food outlets, I find meat with halal slaughterhouse codes – and hardly any is labelled ‘halal’ – so how can shoppers make an informed choice???
      You say… “Supermarkets do not force halal meat on customers. You HAVE a choice…either buy halal or non halal.”
      – Oh No we do NOT get a choice… Last week I was babysitting for my son & his wife and I thought I would check out the meat codes of the meat in his Fridge/Freezer… He always buys from Sainsburys where there is a halal counter and a Non-halal counter – and he buys from the Non-Halal counter… and you guessed it – when I checked the codes I found that nearly ALL of the meat he had bought was from halal certified slaughterhouses.
      Anyone reading this, including Adam, who wants to learn how to check out these EU Meat Codes, can learn how to read them by joining our MEAT WATCH Panel here…

      MORRISONS is clearly halal certified in this Business Directory…
      COMPANIES DIRECTORY – MORRISONS
      http://fis.com/fis/companies/details.asp?l=e&company_id=154596
      QUESTION: Why do Morrisons have that halal certification on their Company Listing?
      ANSWER: Well people like you Adam & Muslims say that ALL fish is halal (despite the fact that this is WRONG – no arabic name is needed for fish! IT IS FISH.)
      Next Muslims say they want to give the Company a halal accreditation… Then the Company, like Morrisons, fall for it! HOOK LINE & SINKER!
      2. Buying Halal Products and Services DOES FUND Terrorism – this is how… (from our perspective – keep the blinkers off please or you will not understand)
      Muslims involved in the halal industry get their income from the sale of halal goods and the profit or wages from the halal certified services, businesses & products.
      All devout muslims must pay Zakat and the amount they pay is calculated on their income from the halal industry and associated wealth.
      1/8 of Zakat is given to Muslim Fighters for Allah… in other words Terrorists. Further money is gathered from halal certification, monitoring businesses and halal services.
      PROOF OF WHERE ZAKAT GOES…
      The 9/11 Commission which found that Al Qaeda was funded “almost entirely” by zakat and sadaqa (donations beyond the 2½ zakat rate).
      From the 9/11 Commission Report:
      Bin Ladin did not fund al Qaeda through a personal fortune and a network of businesses in Sudan. Instead, al Qaeda relied primarily on a fund-raising network developed over time. The CIA now estimates that it cost al Qaeda about $30 million per year to sustain its activities before 9/11 and that this money was raised almost entirely through donations.
      http://moneyjihad.wordpress.com/2012/06/18/zawahiri-emphasizes-bin-ladens-money-jihad/
      ~ However you quote a Wiki article which clearly speaks of Zakat being paid… ‘in the cause of Allah; and for the wayfarer’
      See this Muslim website that says QUOTE: The opinion that ‘Allah’s Cause’ is limited to voluntary mujahids that do not receive wages from the Islamic treasury, seems most correct.
      http://www.biharanjuman.org/who_gets_zakaat.htm
      Mmmm… Voluntary mujahids – could this be like the Mujahideen… in other words TERRORISTS! Read about them here on the GDT -Global Terrorism Database:

    • Marie says:

      Why would you consider it to be anti-Islamic for people to want to know where the meat they are buying is sourced?

      Britain is not an Islamic state and we should not be hoodwinked into buying Halal meat. It is not anti-Islamic to disapprove of the situation discussed here. The meat should be clearly labelled and if, as I believe is the case, Morrisons is a supermarket for all to shop in, there should be an alternative available. If not, then Morrisons are making a point and deserve to lose customers.

    • Yorin says:

      Adam, taken from the site you recommended: “In Islam, the phrase al-jihad fi sabilillah is the equivalent of the western notion of bellum justum or just war.[2] Such a “just war” or “war in the cause of God” has been propagated in modern Islamic fundamentalism beginning in the late 19th century, and notably in the mid-20th century in Islamic revivalism.[3]”
      Pretty much says it all doesn’t it?

    • Drypooldog says:

      Was the aforementioned TRIPE halal tripe?

      Why not change the name to halal to HaHa, then we could all have a good laugh !!

      Keep your rituals to yourself and we can keep our rituals to ourselves, that should be fair enough.

      We do not set up establishments in Islamic countries that try to make you change your eating habits.I agree there will be the MacDonalds etc, but they don’t have to use them.

      So why should they want to change our eating habits? keep your food habits for yourselves and your families.

      As to the religion thing (and I am not religious in any way for very obvious reasons) why do you feel the need to do that?

      If you are hungry…grab a bag of chips and call em whatever you want. Don’t worry…we won’t tell !!

      Some scary dudes out there !

      As for me being a non believer in anything other than decency and honesty, I applaud the BoycottHalal purely because I don’t want to be made to eat anything that has hidden agendas attached to it.

      That after all is everyones right is it not?

  7. Andy says:

    Personally i couldnt care less how the animal died but there is no way i should be able buy disguised halal meat.
    It is my choice that my food shouldnt be blessed by some religious nutter and for me is just as outragous as a muslim eating pig.
    Considering the population in the UK is 5% muslim why are they pampered so much.

    • Karasi says:

      I totally agree with you. I am a Hindu and I don’t want to eat halal. I want to see meat properly labelled as non- halal. I am looking for supermarkets that sell non-halal meat. We are not here to please the Muslims who slaughter the animals cruelly.

  8. Matt says:

    I’m pretty disgusted with the practice of Halal as to me it’s basically animal cruelty! Can he supermarkets not be sued for selling halal meat hat isn’t properly labelled ?.

      Write to your MP, MEPs(I have 5) and LORDs here for Free… this is a Government website and you should get a reply from your MP from the House of Commons.
      We must insist that is the Followers of Islam want halal certification, they must pay for it – not us!
      In Great Britain 95%+ of the population are Non-muslims and do not require halal products or services – and they certainly do not want to find out that they are paying for halal certification.

    • Amar says:

      Matt. Chances are that the non halal supliers of meat couldn’t care less about how the animal died. Stunning an animal stops it moving and makes it easier to butcher. This method of killing an animal was just to make the practises more cost efficient for them rather than helping an animal suffer less.

  9. maz says:

    Halal food is better than non halal food. At least halal food doesnt have horse meet like the uk scandal. And no rats meat either lol. You eat eat what you get, if your eating beef then your eating 100% beef not 10% horse meat.

    im going to admit many non Muslims are switching to halal because of the problem of non halal meat industry. Horse meat, dogs meat, what next?

    • BoycottHalal says:

      You are clearly completely unaware that the UK Horsemeat Scandal first came to light when HALAL CERTIFIED MEAT PRODUCTS supplied by HALAL CERTIFIED SUPPLIERS like SODEXO were given to muslim prisoners, but when tested was found to contain PORK & HORSEMEAT DNA! Most if not all of the meat contaminations have been found when DNA Testing HALAL CERTIFIED MEAT! We have loads of proof… here is some…
      PROOF:
      15.1.13 BEHALAL say: Our industry sources have advised us that ABP, which owns two of the businesses named by the FSAI, Silvercrest Foods and
      Dalepak Hambleton and is one of the leading beef producers and exporters in Europe. And Liffey Meats Ltd who own the halal world cuisine trademark.
      Both companies produce halal product lines at the same sites.

      This article states that the The Food Standards Agency in the UK has written to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) seeking clarification of its opinion on the production of smoked skin-on sheep meat – also known as ‘smokies’. Smokies are eaten by some minority ethnic communities in the UK. However, they are banned from being produced legally in the European Union (EU) because hygiene legislation requires all parts of the body of sheep intended for human consumption, except the head and feet, to be skinned.
      SMOKIES were found along with RATS when TRADING STANDARDS swooped down on HALAL Butchers & Market Stalls in London.

    • Yorin says:

      Maz, waken up! Here is your “better” meat:

      Kosher – requires the animal be slaughtered quickly and humanely, strictly forbidding cruel slow methods like strangulation.
      Halal – requires the animal be bled out in agony while sick people who “get off” watching that kind of thing have a “festival.” **
      Kosher – requires the blood be drained cleanly from the *carcass* of the humanely killed animal, removing toxins released from cells into the bloodstream at the moment of death from the meat.
      Halal –leaves the meat *filled* with toxins released at the moment of death because the blood is removed while the animal is dying and therefore is not present in sufficient quantities to remove those last toxins.
      Kosher – contains little to no cortisol or norepenepherine (two stress chemicals that are similar enough from mammal to mammal to cross species) because the animal to be killed is treated well before it is put down and is generally not frightened as it is put down (because in a truly kosher slaughter situation, animals cannot be slaughtered in a sequential fashion, as the waste of one could contaminate the next, so they are not exposed to the “scent of death” the way non-kosher culls are).
      Halal – animals watch other animals die during the blood letting festival, smelling their fear and raising their own stress. These stress chemicals “marinate” the meat in hormones known to raise levels of aggression and violence in nearly all mammal species (including human).

  15. Andrew proctor says:

    Couldn’t agree more with the comments on this site, the islamaphobia card is played as an easy way out too many times, halal is cruel pure and simple, the religion is irrelevant. Also why should we have to eat meat that has been dedicated to a god we don’t believe in. Imagine the outrage if Muslims found out their meat was being blessed by the Christian faith for example. Can’t believe how difficult it is to not eat halal meat in Britain where 95% of the population aren’t Muslim, surely at least 95% of meat produced should be killed humanely and be religiously indifferent (atheist), instead because this country is a pushover it is the other way around, the majority have to suffer.

    Hi !
    I may be wrong, but if supermarket chains are buying Halal food products, whether they are marked or not, does that not mean that they are contributing to terrorism from their profits ?
    So even if Halal products are boycotted, money from non Halal food is going towards terrorism as well, since all money made goes into the same bank account.
    I cannot see any accounts department separating Halal/ non Halal takings to pay for the registration.

  22. Asad says:

    Thanks for this article, I can now safely buy (unmarked) Halal lamb from Morrisons, since we eat only Halal food for religious reasons.

    • BoycottHalal says:

      Yes… but you will not be buying it will you Asad, because for you it will be Mushbooh (Arabic: شبه‎) – uncertain.
      …And that clearly illustrates the problem of sending halal mainstream in any Non-islamic country like Britain… yet this was the theme of the World Halal Forum at Earls Court in 2011.
      Why not just keep halal meat to your own community in halal butchers shops?
      We would have no problem with that, because we could easily avoid it and you could buy it from those you trust.
      The vast majority of shoppers and consumers in Britain are Not Followers of Islam and do not require halal products and services at all. That is why we boycott halal certified products and services where ever we can. We want conventional meat that has no religious association at all.

  23. pauline p. says:

    It makes me sick that this vile disgusting cruel method of slaughter has become the norm in this country.
    I have had to give up eating any meat due to this as I can’t know what I am eating.
    I have never in my life had any issues with any religion or cultures, but this has changed that.
    I can no longer look at the animal in the fields without being aware of the terrible barbaric end these animals will have.
    It’s is disgusting and should not be allowed in this country!!!
