ALL HALAL AND KOSHER MEAT TO BE LABELLED WITH METHOD OF PRODUCTION AND SLAUGHTER
background
THE UK INVOKED THE 'RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION' FROM THE EU'S SLAUGHTER DIRECTIVE 2009. MORE HALAL SLAUGHTER IS CARRIED OUT IN THE UK THAN IN THE REST OF EUROPE. MANY OF US EAT HALAL MEAT UNWITTINGLY IN SCHOOLS, PLANES OR HOSPITALS, OR BUY IT FROM RETAIL OUTLETS IF IT IS SOLD WITHOUT BEING HALAL LABELLED.
additional details
COMPULSORY LABELLING WOULD ALLOW INFORMED CONSUMER CHOICE AND REDUCE CONFLICT WITH OTHER RELIGIOUS GROUPS' PREFERENCES. LABELLING MUST APPLY TO 100% OF THE PRODUCT AND BY-PRODUCT OF ANY RITUALLY SLAUGHTERED ANIMAL.THE HINDQUARTERS OF AN ANIMAL ARE REGARDED AS NON-HALAL EVEN IF THE HALAL METHOD OF SLAUGHTER WAS USED. THEREFORE LABELLING MUST BE PRECISE. ALL IMPORTED MEATS AND BY-PRODUCTS MUST BE CLEARLY LABELLED TO SHOW COUNTRY OF ORIGIN, METHOD OF PRODUCTION, TRANSPORT AND SLAUGHTER.
