Closed petition All halal and kosher certified products are to be prominently labelled as such.

It is strictly forbidden for some Sikhs, Hindus, Buddhists and Christians to consume any halal or kosher certified product or religiously slaughtered meat. Without clear prominent labelling we could be consuming it without knowing. All we are asking for is clear labelling to make an informed choice.

More details

It is important that consumers are able to make an informed choice both in shops and venues where food is consumed. At present we have no way of knowing whether staff are providing us with accurate information
