A number of members of the halal meat industry have formed a new association specifically for the owners of non-stun halal abattoirs. Director of Pal Mecca Meats Birmingham and Chairman of the new Association of Non-Stun Abattoirs Ltd Mohammed Akram Gill commented "This was long overdue the non-stun halal industry was without a voice.
"The lack of industry leadership and cooperation,especially given the state of the current economy the association aims tocreate and raise awareness of the halal industry according to the teaching ofthe Quran and the prophetic tradition."
Ghulam Mustaffa, of Premier Halal Meat, continued "This is good news for Muslim consumers especially Muslim House wife's. The ANSA logo will give them assurance that the meat they will be consuming is truly halal and is ritually halal slaughtered according to Islamic principles."
Ejaz Najib, Vice Chair of the association, added "Thehalal word is most misused word in the UK for labelling of meat and poultry,ANSA will be able to offer cleans and wholesome product that the Muslimscommunity wants."
