What is Halal?
AN APPROACH OF RESPECT AND THANKS
Halal in the traditional sense translates to “lawful” and the term is used to designate food seen as permissible according to Islamic law. For more information on the specific definition of Halal and any religious connotations, please refer to Wikipedia and other relevant definitions.
From the perspective of 13000Halal, it is important that they not only conform to necessary requirements as specified in Islamic law in order to maintain their Halal certifications, but always ensure a respectful approach to the animal and to the greater god (or Allah). By conforming to this traditional approach which is all about treating the animal humanely, the butcher is able to ensure an outcome which results in a consistently high quality halal products.
From the everyday Australian’s perspective, it means that the animals are always treated humanely. The result is a quality and standard of meat that is exceptional without having to incur higher prices.
