Our shoppers don't care if meat is halal, claim supermarkets: Retailers face backlash after saying that it is 'unnecessary' to label meats
by Sean Poulter and Mario Ledwith
Supermarkets were facing a backlash last night after claiming that it was 'unnecessary' to spell out on labels whether meat comes from animals killed by religious slaughter.
Religious groups from all faiths, vets and animal welfare groups joined calls for new labels to identify halal or kosher meat.
But retailers claimed that shoppers do not care – and even argued that there is not enough room on packs for new labels.
