How Companies like Kingsmill Allied Bakeries go Halal

Since the turn of the 21st century, there have been efforts to create organizations such as the Muslim Consumer Group that certify food products as halal for Muslim consumers.
“Halal” is an Arabic word meaning “lawful” or “permissible”, and the term not only covers food and drink, but also to all matters of daily life.

When it comes to halal food, most people think of meat foods only.
However, Muslims aim to ensure that all foods, particularly processed foods, pharmaceuticals, and non-food items like cosmetics, are also halal.

Frequently, these products contain animal by-products or other ingredients that are not permissible for Muslims to eat or use on their bodies.

Throughout the world there are many different Halal Certification Boards in different countries often with diverse standards or criteria for judging if a product or service is halal compliant.

They seek to certify services, products & chains this will involve sectors, brands & corporations.

Services are food processing plants, meat cutting plants, mainstream manufacturers of soups, grains, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, prepared foods & other products, as well as hotels, restaurants, airlines, sporting venues, hospitals and other institutions.

In addition muslims look to change & control sectors such as in finance, legal, media etc…

They will look at the company’s that are manufacturing &/or distributing products e.g. Dairy, Confectionery & Sauce products contain additives & flavourings along with the main ingredients which may become halal certified.

EXAMPLE:    ALLIED BAKERIES PLC

Last year in UK they aimed at Allied Bakeries and began by getting their Walthamstow Plant Halal Certified that will now be closely audited monitored & inspected by the HFA (Halal Food Authority).

See Allied Bakeries amongst others listed here on the HFA website…
http://www.halalfoodauthority.co.uk/members-new.html

This regular HFA audit now has to be paid for by Allied Bakeries, who will have probably been promised many benefits like wider distribution and expansion to new muslim markets. Ingredients used in the Allied Bakery Plant now have to meet the HFA Standard. All cleaning products used in the plant must be halal too and not contain alcohol the requirements for halal compliance go on & on… and can include muslim workers only in certain roles… which marginalises Non-Muslim British workers.
This move on Allied Bakeries towards halal compliance affected 4 Brands Sunblest, Burgen, Allinson and Kingsmill… but only Kingsmill (which involves 18 different types of bread) is showing the Halal Mark on its packaging which adds another additional cost.

So how can this be profitable with all these extra costs?

Many of these halal organisations are Registered Religious Charities and somehow have managed to claim that they are Non-Profit making, so get various Tax & VAT exemptions

(Yes… this will affect our economy as money is channelled off towards Islamic aims!)

NOTE that Allied Bakeries is one of the UK’s leading Bakery Businesses one of three divisions of Allied Milling and Baking, which in turn is a part of Associated British Foods (ABF) plc, a major international business with a turnover of £11.1bn and close to 102,000 employees working in 46 countries. In the UK, well-known ABF brands include: Twinings, Silver Spoon, Primark, Ryvita, Ovaltine, Patak’s and Jordans Cereals. They supply Bread to Schools… which will now be halal and there is no mention of this massive paradigm shift on their website…

Nowhere does it say on their website that Allied Bakeries is now a halal compliant company!

How do I know all this…??? 
I was on the phone to Allied Bakeries HQ every week as all these changes were made last year complaining… but it was all to no avail.

The only way we can show our dissatisfaction is to BOYCOTT ALLIED BAKERIES PRODUCTS and write & tell them we are doing so & why!

Vegetarians have specifically asked about Milk & Sauces… On that HFA link you will see a list of many companies including:
MEADOW FOODS Processors, Procurers, Manufacturers and distributors of HALAL Dairy products including Milk (skimmed, concentrates and full creamed), Anhydrous Milk Fat and varieties of Creams & Butters.
SMITHS FLOUR MILLS Processors, procurers, manufacturers and distributors of HALAL White Flour, Heat Treated Flour and Wheat Feed at Lincolnshire and Nottingham plants
VOLAC INTERNATIONAL Processors, procurers, manufacturers and distributors of Halal Whey Protein Isolate and Lactose Powder at named plant
The List goes on and on and on.

    we have to do our best in these hard times its a shame we have to put up with this stuff

  2. mark robertson says:

    I do occasionaly eat halal products such as goat and curry sundries, but these are through choice. What I don’t want to do is inadvertently support the islamification of Britain. Companies must make it clear on the packaging wether their product is halal. Alternatively stop pandering to pathetic religious reasoning. This is Britain after all. Try buying a bacon sarnie in Pakistan.Fairs fair.

    • MSW says:

      By eating goat and curry sundries that are halal, you are supporting the islamification of England, and funding the terrorists.

  3. Pengy says:

    Its stuff like this that makes me want to leave this country and start somewhere else , what type of world have i brought children into?!

  4. Caroline evans says:

    Enough.. Why are the British government allowing this?? It’s sickening how animals are treated slaughtered in this way.. And I will not be buying anything that’s halal certified.

  5. Daryl says:

    All the governments around the world need to make it law that halal needs to be printed onto all
    Goods and services so that none Muslims can make an informed choice to boycott
    The companies that are dumb enough to support halal tax which funds things like 9/11 and many other acts of war
    Absolutely disgusting

  6. mauricemojo234 says:

    ok thats allied bakeries on the barred list as well as tate and lyle and campbells

  7. Billy says:

    Well, after great consideration, I will systematically go through all the products that I use from Allied Bakeries, and seek alternative suppliers. This not not good, to appease one section of the public, without informing the other. Which I wonder what other changes have been made?

  8. sophia says:

    But the worse is Halal funding feeds mosques. Mosques create islamist. Islamist breed ISIS.

    We pay for the terrorists.

  9. Mary says:

    What’s happened to common sense? Why do we want to do business with people who want to kill us?

  10. Cally says:

    Always did prefer Hovis anyway

  11. Isabella Grimaldi says:

    Boycotting halal products is just the first step against the islamification of Western Europe. We must stand united and reclaim our freedom of choice and uphold our cultural heritage. Most Muslim countries don’t even allow people to practice other faithsthan Islam, let alone dictate what they should eat. So isn’t it time we started to defend our way of life? If people from other backgrouns/countries/faiths don’t like it here they should leave and go somewhere more suitable. No one has to stay here, after all.

  12. Kay says:

    AS EVER THE REAL ISSUE IS BEEN FORGOTTEN!!!
    If in any doubt that HALAL is ok, go to my face book page and watch the video of how, RELIGIOUS SLAUGHTER ACTUALLY OCCURS.
    It is a frenzied, barbaric violent act of torture, there is no quick, painless end……….THAT IS THE ISSUE!
    THAT IS WHAT HAS GOT TO BE BANNED.
    WE DON’T SLAUGHTER OUR MEAT IN THIS WAY!!!!

  13. Danny says:

    Well I will not be buying any more from suppliers who are catering for Muslims

  14. Clare Morris says:

    So….are Muslims taking over the world? Why are we succumbing to Halal? If we were to go to places like Pakistan or Saudi Arabia and try to bring Western ways into their society we’d be arrested. It would not be tolerated.
    If we were to serve non-halal products to Muslims we would be called racists, we’d be discriminating, we’d be branded with every label going.
    I’m sick to death of pandering to these sick, barbaric practices. I do not want to eat halal anything.
    It’s a load of bollocks and mumbo jumbo that it’s better for you and less likely to cause disease. It’s religious clap trap.
    Let Great Britain be Great Britain and not become a Muslim state.
    Stop pussy-footing around these people just because some people say we should embrace it!
    I do not want to embrace anything Muslim….don’t get me wrong, I have Muslim friends, but the UK is being sucked up in a whirlwind of propaganda and we have to stop it before there is no return.
    It is absolutely disgusting to make an animal suffer and this is what Halal is!!!!

  15. Keith Lane says:

    When something is halal certified – it should be shown large on the label – i.e. not less than 10% of the label area, in a contrasting colour – so we can easily see it and avoid it.
    Arabic script must be outlawed on all products for UK consumption, because we don’t know what it says.

  16. Simran Kaur says:

    This is Britain
    We live in Britain born and bred – so why should we eat halal? We are not muslims!
    Chips and bread cereal chocolates are halal certified – snickers etc.
    All halal certified food I will boycott, as I am not muslim.
    I will not buy brands or food that is halal certified in UK supermarkets.
    Please label all items food safe for non muslims.
    We must lobby the UK parliament and food manufacturers about this serious issue in uk.
    If they want halal in schools hospitals it’s just not right to serve it to everyone – they are making people eat halal, because most of it is not labelled & people in uk don’t know. This is not right.
