PLEASE ALL SIGN THE PETITION it doesn’t matter where you live.   Everyone can sign this.


We UK Consumers appeal to those in power to authorise the writing of a suitable policy that will make Labelling ALL Religiously Slaughtered meat a Legal Requirement by Law, so that we all know what we are buying & eating in plain English. We UK Consumers want ALL Ritually Slaughtered Meat & Bi-Products LABELLED with a simple ‘RS’ no matter how it is stunned or what its source is. ‘RS’ can also stand for ‘Religious Standard’ and could therefore be used on ALL Products that come under any Religious Standard.

This 'RS' Label signifies a Religious Standard and/or Ritually Slaughtered meat is involved in manufacture &/or distribution of this product.

 ‘RS’ Label 

Anywhere & anything associated with Ritual Slaughter or a Religious Standard needs labelling ‘RS’ so we fully understand what we are choosing to buy or eat.

The UK needs Consumer confidence to be restored and this will only happen when there is more transparency in Labelling of ‘RS’ food, goods & services.

We also fully support the EU Parliament’s move to Label ALL meat that has been obtained by Slaughter without stunning in the Food Information Regulation (FIR).

UK Consumers want ALL Ritually Slaughtered Meat LABELLED with a simple ‘RS’ no matter how stunned…


See Petition Background (Preamble) Here:

If the Red & Black Label would be too expensive due to the colour This Black & White alternative would do the job.




  1. Brad Williams says:

    Boycott Halal food and products. We have a choice, make the right one.

    • paul says:

      That 6 minute video just makes me weep – it is THE sickest most disgusting thing Ive *EVER* seen. Severed animal heads and slow deaths. I can see why terrorists are so “anaethetised” to the brutality of beheading etc. This is the worst way that an animal could be killed for meat products and the UK Government should not be allowing this in the 21st Century simply to appease religion. Saying that this is ok is akin to saying numerous wives are ok, 12 year old wives are ok etc. NO TO HALAL it simply wrong.

    • Brian Hill says:

      Boycott all the supermarkets involved.Do not buy from them again…what a disgrace.All are involved in ANIMAL CRUELTY.I would have thought this was illegal in the U.K Do not vote Conservative in any elections…they have allowed this to happen.

  2. Brian Harrison says:

    Halal meat and islam both need to be banned it is a way of hate how can the meat taste better or be holy if the animal dies in agony disgusting practice

    • carl says:

      i agree , these animals only live short lives, the least we can do is kill them humanely, the trouble is that in supermarkets we dont know what is halal and what isnt

  3. DIRK VAN DESSEL says:

    I EAT PORK AND I AM PROUD TO DO SO because it shows my ethnical-cultural-religious roots

  4. Enid says:

    I didn’t ask for halal meat in this country it has no place in Britain. I certainly will not frequent any store that tricks me into buying and eating it. Where has everyones morals gone when they are willing to put up with this disgusting torture of animals.

  5. amad says:

    So its fish and pork for dinner

  6. if it is ritually slaughtered it is not stunned.

  7. philip green says:

    I don’t want it, and i don’t want my children eating it.
    It has no place in civilised society.

  8. anthony jackson says:

    Surely forcing me to buy halal meat, a meat that due to religous purposes must be blessed and that crap. Is a total disrespect to my religous veiws. So why are they allowed to do that!

  9. martin defferary says:

    as a christian i strongly object to being covertly sold halal meat and poultry by supermarkets and other food outlets.

  10. Henry Larmour says:

    This must be stopped at all costs!
    We haven’t come this far in animal welfare only to be dragged back to the Dark Ages (or worse) by these primitives.

  11. Johnny Gee says:

    Boycott halal and spread the word.

  12. Nite Christensen says:

    Stop this cruelty.

    • BoycottHalal says:

      Thank You for sharing – We are fully in Support of the work that Scotland For Animals has been doing over the past few years to get a legal challenge against halal.
      I have just written to Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall on the River Cottage website and hope he will come on board and help us fight this halal outrage – He has done so well with the Caged Birds and Fish Fights. You might want to contact him too at the Facebook River Cottage Page John.

  13. leslie sheehan says:

    I don’t see why we as a country should have to put up with this. I will be using my local farm shop to now buy my meat as I then know where it will have come from. I would also like to know what the British government are going to do about the supermarkets selling this to us without our consent as this is misrepresentation so is breaking the law

  14. Sheila walker says:

    Barbaric, disgusting practice.

  15. Dennis Curtis says:




  17. paul allen says:

    No halal were British

  18. judy boughton says:

    No halal

  19. Samuel Hickman says:

    Absolutely disgusting and cruel!

  20. How do I avoid halal

  21. Genevieve Burnell says:

    Animal welfare before any religion

  22. Margaret benfield says:

    No Halal should be fed to Christian folk .

  23. John Gleadow says:

    Why should everyone be forced into eating halal just because of islamic misguided beliefs.

  24. I want halal banned in this country, I don’t want to eat meat that has been prayed over by a dirty muslim

  25. Leonard Bearman says:

    If these company’s wish to sell Halal they should keep meat that is slaughtered that way separate from other meat products that is slaughtered
    the British way and mark accordingly

  26. Alan Westwood says:

    Does this also include sellers of Halal processed products? Dominoes Pizza, Pizza Express, KFC etc?

  27. J Anderson says:

    Cruelty to animals is unacceptable and must stop.
    Food should be labelled so consumers can see how it is produced.

  28. stuart Greasley says:

    I totally agree, there is no place for halal in the uk

  29. Janet Keating says:

    So cruel it needs stopping now I watched the video and cant get it out of my mind

  30. It’s cruel enough to kill animals but the halal method seems especially outdated and barbaric medieval 7th century method… Animal cruelty is a separate issue from religion and in a secular 21st century society we need to ban this practice now. Am boycotting any company associated with this practice e.g. Tate and Lyle, and sourcing my meat ethicallly.

  31. Jeremy Walker says:

    I think we are missing the bigger picture here. Don’t get me wrong, having watched the video a few days ago I cried for the first time in many years. How can we humans treat animals in such a disgusting, barbaric and disrespectful way and try to fob off the protests with total bullshit such as “the animal feels no pain”? And we claim to be the superior race?

    This brings me to my point. Yes, this type of slaughter should be banned immediately (it wont be by the way because governments don’t have the balls) but don’t for one minute be kidded by the argument that animals stunned before being slaughtered are treated well. Go onto the internet and see for yourself how animals slaughtered to provide a meal for patrons of many of the fast food chains are treated.

    This is down to personal choice but next time you are looking up at the menu board about to order your next burger, close your eyes for a moment, think about the first 20 seconds of this video, picture the look on those animals faces and then place your order. I wonder if you are disgusted enough to choose something different next time?

    We simply cannot continue to walk around with our head in the sand regarding the meat industry. It is barbaric, disgusting and spares no thought whatsoever for the animals themselves. But heh, we shouldn’t be surprised as, at the end of the day, its all about money and nothing else

  32. Hettie Barker says:

    Halal slaughter is sadistic and barbaric and I do NOT wish to eat any meat that has been slaughtered in this manner. Since finding out that Supermarkets have been selling unlabelled Halal meat I no longer buy any meat products from them.

  33. Susan Bennett says:

    Had no idea that we as a British nation were buying halal meat. It must stop ! Our country, our rules.

  34. markpitches says:

    let Britain be Britain

  35. We should not be allowing barbaric foreign practices into this country

  36. richie says:

    its so wrong im using my local butcher from now on .No wonder tesco sales are going down its not the time to go back to the little shops and the local butcher its not the competition why your sales are down its the fact you dont tell us what you are selling us …eg horse meat… halal meat omg did you know that in the bible its sinned apon to kill an animal for a idol but you sell us halal meat in a christian country well done tesco may you lose sales for ever more .. talk about looking after customers

  37. Andrew Brown says:

    The UK is not an Islamic country and halal ritual slaughter has no place in it. Should Muslims wish to live by Islamic rules and law then they should move a country which provides it.

    Unfortunately, the freedom that Western countries with a tradition and evolved culture of Christian values is now giving too much leeway to those who dislike that freedom and culture. Western democracy is built on it and I hope that other countries follow the lead of Denmark very soon. Perhaps France will be the next.

  38. LORI LEE says:

    I do not wish to eat halah meat, will not be purchasing meat from any supermarket until they have clarified this issue.

  39. Angela Youel says:

    We should have the right to have our food, and everything else, labelled, im in full agreement, and you have my backing

  40. David Candlin says:

    I do not want to eat halal its cruel slaughter! and I am a Christian no imam prays over my food!

  41. amanda simpson says:

    no halal this is england

  42. Lynne Hamilton says:

    Please give me the choice for what I eat, labelling is a MUST so that I can chose to BOYCOTT HALAL. I DON’T LIVE IN AN ISLAMIC STATE. I am not nor ever will be muslim. I’m BRITISH and I prefer OUR way of life.

  43. Hayley Groves Greenwood says:

    English born & bred!! England ways,England rules for anyone living here! We do not want some muslim islamic faith slaughtering our animals in such an inhumane way!!!

  44. J Porter says:

    Animals in England should be slaughtered according to English practice. I wish to know that the meat I am buying is humanely slaughtered and it should be labelled accordingly, it is outrageous that suppliers are not compelled to do this.

  45. granville says:

    we are british forever!!!!!!!! when in rome do as the romans do. humane is the only way!!!!!!!!!!!!.

  46. carolyn mcauley says:

    I have found a video on goats by the science community which explains the illusion of why a halal meat producers generate the illusion of submissionn of the animal to slaughter.
    ..goats have a neuro transmitter that seizes after shock (goat fainting) and this fact may be the misguided basis for the religious oversight(yuk).
    Anyway the video would chip into the core of the social myth. Sadly, I am not computer savvy and don’t know how to send it.

  47. John Fishwick says:

    My daughter goes to a church primary school where she has school meals. It has a policy of not discriminating against other religions so they also get a place at the school. On the menu there is no mention of pork (which I presume is so not to offend other religions). But the school is Church of England!!! It angers me so much that no-one is speaking out about it. Also, how do I find out if it is Halal meat without any labeling.

    Well done to for speaking out.

    • BoycottHalal says:

      In UK a very useful App you can get if you have an iPhone or an Android is WTF – Where’s This From

      Using the 4 digit meat code, you can quickly discover where this meat is sourced.
      The App will not tell you if the meat is halal, but it quickly tells you the result of the last FSA (Food Standards Agency) checks which can be a good indicator of how the animal was slaughtered.
      It will also quickly tell you what slaughterhouse or cutting plant the 4 digit Meat Code indicates – and that must be put on ALL carcasses and packaged meat in EU Countries.
      So you then add the Name of that Slaughterhouse into google with the word ‘halal’, click Enter and see what results come up.
      OR you can then contact the Slaughterhouse and ask, by phone, letter or email.
      Please help us by sharing the results on the Wall of our Meat Watch Panel on Facebook – here…
      MEAT WATCH Panel

  48. Nadine says:

    The supermarkets, restaurants and fast food chains rely on our ignorance. We should know what we are eating so we can make our own decisions. The more I read the unhappier I get. We buy our meat from our local butchers & it tastes loads better that the supermarket equivalent, now I know why…… Appalled that this is being allowed to continue.

  49. Elaine Davies says:

    So many dissenting voices,let us rise up together and March to Westminster and protest about this vile practice.

  50. I do not want to eat meat that has not been properly stunned before slaughter and I do not want to eat halal meat full stop. This should not be forced on me. I will boycott all supermarkets and restaurants who do not make it known and i will let my reason be known to them. It is a disgrace to trick us this way any Muslims would be in outrage if they were so tricked. Please find strength and watch on you tube how barbaric this is, you will feel sickened and disgusted as I am, but do it for these poor animals and boycott as I am. Thank you.

  51. Anna Smith says:

    I am currently contacting all of my local restaurants and takeaways and asking them if their meat is halal. I then write a review on trip advisor advising people of my findings. More people have to do this because most establishments don’t mention this on menus or websites which means that non muslims don’t know what they are eating.

  52. I think its disturbing we are not being given the choice anymore.
    I don’t want to eat that halal rubbish – its wrong them trying to make us eat it…..

  53. Sheila Brown says:

    I want all animals in the food chain to be treated with respect and compassion- we are not superior to them they have a place on eRth as well- what is wrong with the government that allows this torture to go on

  54. L Lund says:

    I do not agree with the Halal method and the needless suffering of the animals in these abattoirs. There should be only Muslim butchers shops selling this barbaric non-stun method. It actually doesn’t have to happen it has been recorded by Sheikh Tawidi in Australia that it doesn’t have to apply in the real Muslim world.

  55. Marian L. says:

    It is an inhumane way of killing poor defenceless animals in this way. We should all become vegans as well.
