Officials deny NZ meat industry favours Muslim religion
by Olivia Carville
Officials have poured cold water over a Kiwi farmer's concerns that New Zealand's meat industry only caters to the Muslim religion.
The majority of meat works in New Zealand are halal-certified and comply with strict Islamic guidelines, including that the beast must have its throat cut by a Muslim slaughterman in the name of Allah while it is facing towards Mecca.
Kiwi farmer Ken Riddle told NZME the halal-requirements compromised his own Christian beliefs and recently decided to slaughter one of his cows at his North Island farm in order to avoid funding another religion.
