Halal certification: Army mandates Muslim-certified food for our Diggers
by Matthew Benns
One third of combat rations offered to all Aussie troops now has to be halal-certified, despite the Australian Defence Force having fewer than 100 Muslims.
The orders that four of the 12 battle meal menu options offered to soldiers in the field need to be halal were approved by the Deputy Chief of Army Major General Rick Burr.
Under the new changes, ration packs should also contain kosher and vegetarian meals to help combat "menu fatigue".
