Mechanical Slaughtering of Birds

HFA CEASES TO ACCEPT MECHANICAL SLAUGHTERING OF HALAL POULTRY

As a result of various consultations and procedural review by the Board of HFA Scholars and Trustees, Halal Food Authority (HFA) has decided to amend its certification policy and consequently, mechanical slaughtering of poultry would no longer be covered by the HFA
Halal Standard. Poultry slaughterhouses that employ a mechanical fixed blade (mechanised killing) to slaughter birds would no longer be accredited by the HFA for halal status with effect from 3rd March 2014.
