‘Boycott Halal in Australia’ is certainly getting some publicity

Even a cursory glance at the ‘Boycott Halal in Australia‘ Facebook site along with a random reading of major newspapers across Australia indicate that this popular movement has gained some traction in recent months.

In essence, this Halal issue centres on paying a fee to have on your product a clear logo or words to the effect that this item has been given the all-go for Muslims to purchase it and eat it. But it doesn’t start and end there, even the transport that brings that product to the market place is required to have Halal certification.

If such a trucking company refuses to ‘cough up’ the money to get Halal certification, then any product with Halal certification is not permitted to be transported by that company.
The chain of Halal certification has a very long arm.

Check out what’s involved –
getting from the farm
food preparation
transport to the market place

‘Boycott Halal in Australia’ identifies a number of concerns relating to Australian commercial enterprisers signing up Halal certification.

Is it a restriction on fair trade to those who chose not to pay-up to get Halal certification? Does this pose an economic burden upon those those that do not pay-up? Two good questions.

This leads directly to the nature of Halal certification. This is not a Government requirement. This is, for want of a word, a private commercial enterprise and a very handsome money making exercise. According to the reports on the Facebook page (above), some companies are forking out $29,000 a month.

Medium sized abattoirs charged $27,000 a month – that works out to $324,000 per annum – not bad for a scamming rort eh!

Another example: A meat processing company said it paid more that $2.4 million for halal certification.

Another issue is that this whole Halal certification scenario is of great concern to many non-Muslims. Australia has just over 2% of its entire population Muslim. The rest of us are being force-fed product with Halal certification whether we like it or not. Moreover this kind of Halal certification is only quite new, a few years. What has changed?

As a result, this Halal certification ‘business enterprise’ has expanded exponentially, with a hanging out of a shingle (as it were) as Halal certifiers with no Government control of the process. The Facebook site illustrates this – with example after example.

I have had to minimise this image so much to get it on the page that you won’t be able to see the signs.. there are so many – too many Self-appointed halal authorities!

Furthermore, the Facebook page gives examples where food preparation inspections are not even part of these cowboy Halal certification business groups.
A phone call, pay up, Halal certificate issued.

The money

There are numerous questions associated as to where the money ends up. The Facebook site gives chapter and verse from those involved in the Halal certification. One question relates to ISIS as according to the Facebook page, is somewhere in the mix.

But it is more than this. It is an inexpensive way to fund the various aspects of Islam in Australia and across the globe. The money involved is considerable. Some have referred to it as ‘GST across the world’ and this Halal certification focuses on rich western nations.

In effect, Australians are paying up. The question posed by the Facebook page is that these people have a freedom to get monies without the sorts of Government restrictions that are seemingly placed upon every other enterprise. Even Charities in Australia have to conform and meet a host of regularity requirements.

The Facebook page says many of Australia’s companies are complicit and they are paying this Halal certification without so much as a whimper, until now. Hence the ‘Boycott Halal in Australia’ movement which has gained such publicity that some companies have now dropped their Halal certification.

Why isn’t it reversed?

If it is so important why isn’t it reversed, and the Muslim community itself pays the Government to have their Halal certification placed on specific approved food products.
That makes a great deal of common sense to me.

Certainly Dick Smith products belong to a growing number of enterprisers who refuse to have Halal certification. They are being praised across the nation.

The Facebook page identify both groups – those that have chosen to ignore the Halal certification and those that have it. South Coast Dairies are not Halal certified and have no intention of doing so.

Again from the Facebook site – the Subway Vege Pattie is Halal certified and there is a call to boycott it. Chobani Yogurt likewise. Cadbury chocolate also (there has been a cry recently that Cadbury reduced their chocolate bar size – I wonder whether it’s to pay for their Halal certification?). Kellogg’s breakfast cereals have Halal certification. Even ingredients are checked and therefore require Halal certificate.

Words given to explain all this: insidious, alarming …. The Facebook page says even Sanitarium is Halal certified (associated with the Seventh Day Adventists). Good grief that’s Weet-bix! Halal certifiers have their fingers on this too.

We have several examples of SANITARIUM’S Halal Certificates covering every product they sell.

Maleny Dairies have stated that Halal Certification is not part of their business model. They will not be spending money on such an item and the positive responses have been phenomenal.

The Facebook site ‘Boycott Halal in Australia’ is quite an eye-opener. Take a read but sit down first ….

The call is to change your shopping habits.

You just might find that your shopping budget is a lot better off. Certainly, you won’t be paying what the Facebook page refers to as this (in effect) additional GST.

BOYCOTT Cadburys UK & the Annual National Trust ‘Egg Hunt’

BOYCOTT Mondelez brand CADBURYS & the Annual National Trust ‘Egg Hunt’
Theresa May PM criticises Cadbury over Easter egg hunt

WELL DONE to Theresa May for speaking out against Cadbury & the National Trust to downplay Easter in their ‘Annual Egg Hunt’
Theresa May condemns National Trust for axing ‘Easter’ from egg hunt – Prime minister says decision to remove mention of Christianity from yearly children’s event was ‘just ridiculous’
See Video in this article here…
Theresa May condemns National Trust for axing ‘Easter’ from egg hunt
Theresa May’s rebuke came after The Archbishop of York had boldly criticised Cadburys UK…
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Dr John Sentamu accused the chocolate giant of “spitting on the grave” of its religious founder by removing references to Easter from the the spring event it runs nationwide.
Archbishop of York: Egg hunt without Easter ‘spits on Cadbury founder’s grave’
Archbishop of York: Egg hunt without Easter ‘spits on Cadbury founder’s grave’
Many strong objections have been heard after it had emerged that this year’s Easter campaign, in conjunction with the National Trust, was going to be called the “Cadbury’s Great British Egg Hunt”.
The Church of England has accused the National Trust of “airbrushing faith” after it dropped the word “Easter” from its annual Easter egg hunt.
Even Jeremy Corbyn spoke out questioning “Why should they be Cadbury, rather than Easter eggs?”
“I’m a member of the national trust and I will be buying an Easter egg for my grandson.”
Asked whether he agreed with Theresa May, the Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn said:

“It upsets me as well, because I don’t see why Cadbury should take over the name, because that’s what it’s done, it’s commercialisation gone a bit too far.”

The annual event, which sees hundreds of thousands of children search for chocolate eggs at National Trust properties, has been rebranded to exclude Easter for the first time in 10 years.
The National Trust said that suggestions it was downplaying the significance of Easter were “nonsense” while the chocolate firm dismissed the Archbishop’s claim as “simply not true”.
However, Easter has been dropped from the name.

Cadbury’s website makes reference to Easter in relation to the hunt in several places, but the word does not feature on the logo for the event.
Cadburys said it has been putting Easter on its advertising and the criticisms are lies.
– Oh Yes – that is why there has been a Storm of Protest on the Cadburys website over the past week… and before they deny that – it has been reported in the News.
The 1pm BBC NEWS on 4 Apr 2017 reported that after Theresa May’s intervention, the National Trust has now amended its website & advertising for the annual Egg Hunt to include the word ‘Easter’.

See Videos of our Leaders speaking out against Cadburys & The National Trust after they drop the word ‘Easter’ from their Annual Egg Hunt advertising campaign:

CADBURYS is now just a trade name
The press need to point out that CADBURYS is merely a Trade Name now – it is Halal Certified MONDELEZ who have been put in charge (by KRAFT) of manufacturing… so we should not be surprised that EASTER is being downplayed – Note the creators of Cadburys were Quakers who are deeply religious with respect to Christian belief – Meanwhile, a descendant of John Cadbury, a Non-believer Esther McConnell tweeted: “I’m sure John Cadbury (my g. g. g. g. grandfather) is not spinning in his grave.”
Oh I bet her ancestors are not pleased with the Cadburys Sell Off and the changes that has brought about… See them here…
13 CHANGES TO CADBURY’S since the KRAFT Takeover!
Cadbury is losing its magic & dodges £24,000,000 in Tax
All change: the chocolate used for Cadbury’s Creme Eggs is no longer Dairy Milk – they changed the recipe in 2015 & lost sales.
13 CHANGES TO CADBURY’S since the KRAFT Takeover!

Cadbury loses over £6m in Creme Egg sales after changing recipe
CADBURY’S is now OWNED by KRAFT – Cadburys PARENT COMPANY IS MONDELEZ & they call the shots now… THAT’S THE TRUTH – yet the Cadburys Admins on their Facebook Page have continually denied the truth – of their ownership, of their recipe change and of the fact that CADBURYS is now Halal Certified.
Yet we have recorded evidence – Cadburys is HALAL CERTIFIED – from their own Customer Service department…
Listen to this call by Davey Russell DJ at MOTIV8 Radio Station to CADBURYS UK which PROVES that Cadburys is Halal Certified!
Cadburys UK Admins are now denying this, but DJ Davey Russell points out…
Just to clarify, in my call regarding the Halal Certification of Cadburys UK – I mentioned the UK at 5.03 – this was a UK CALL to a UK NUMBER.
Davey Russell DJ at MOTIV8 Radio Station questions CADBURYS UK

Cadburys was bought by KRAFT in 2010
Kraft launched a formal, hostile bid for Cadbury valuing the firm at £9.8 billion on 9 November 2009.
On 19 January 2010, it was announced that Cadbury and Kraft Foods had reached a deal and that Kraft would purchase Cadbury for £8.40 per share, valuing Cadbury at £11.5bn (US$18.9bn).

In August 2011 Kraft Foods announced plans to split into two publicly traded companies, one snack-food and the other grocery. The company changed its name to Mondelez International, specializing in snack foods, in October 2012 and a second company (Kraft Foods Group, specializing in grocery items) was split off.

It is astounding that CADBURYS UK are denying Mondelez management of production when there are so many links to proof; plus the fact that the Mondelez Name appears on every Cadburys product should be enough evidence even for the diehard deniers.

Impostors: Cadbury has admitted that its Creme Eggs are not what they used to be… No longer is the egg shell be made from delicious Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate. GUARDIAN QUOTE:
It will instead be made from disgusting, foul, vomit-inducing “standard cocoa mix chocolate”.
“It’s no longer Dairy Milk. It is similar, but not exactly Dairy Milk,” said a spokesman for Cadbury, which was bought by the US giant Kraft in 2010 and is now owned by Mondelez
See this bizarre Guardian article that is choaking on the Cadburys recipe changes…

The Cadburys Australia website clearly declares their halal certification AND the awful fact that Cadburys chocolate now contains Halal Gelatine – which is made from boiling the bones, hooves and skins of Ritually Slaughtered animals – YUK! PROOF HERE:

More recent Choc horror!

Cadburys American owner breaks key promise to continue production at Bournville
Choc Horror – Favourite Cadburys Dairy Milk bars now made in Poland. Cadburys’ American owner breaks key promise to continue production at Bournville.

The fact that MONDELEZ ensure that all of it production plants are Halal Certified means that everything coming out of those plants is automatically halal certified… Halal Certification fees & charges have been and are being paid.
