Here's a thought.... don't buy those foods... the businesses will lose customers and money and possibly go out of business. No need to send letters to the supermarket, just do the boycott. Woah! Capitalism is so easy!

Rebecca, the choices are becoming less and less! More and more products are becoming halal certified. In Australian supermarkets most cheeses, olive oils, chocolates, baby food, sauces, meat etc etc are halal now. The logo is usualy very hard to spot too. Even yogurts use halal gelatine, most gelatine is imported from Indonesia. Gelatine is an animal by-product. Considering Indonesia's appalling abbatoir conditions and barbaric prolonged animal slaughter you can only wonder what suffering...

If it is this important to you, you could shop at whole foods. It's more expensive but I'm sure you'll find non-Halal foods just fine there. If there are a lot more Halal products than not that means there is a high demand for Halal. I have no problem with this. I'm not one for animal cruelty but I am for religious freedom and I think Kosher and Halal foods NEED to be sold on our shelves for the benefit of those who chose to eat that way.

I'm not one for animal cruelty but I am for religious freedom and I think Kosher and Halal foods NEED to be sold on our shelves for the benefit of those who chose to eat that way. The balance of how much Kosher, Halal and other foods is determined by the demand for these products. Besides, many of these animals don't feel a thing and they are supposed to be positioned in a way to allow the fastest death possible. I just don't see what sending a letter to a supper market is going to do. They won't listen because they are getting more money by having Halal foods than not. Realize that the better route is to buy strictly non-Halal foods, I promise it's much more effective in a Capitalist society.

Allowing one particular religious organisiation to benefit financially from a product the general public use discriminates against all other religions and non-believers. I don't care if someone wants halal, I do care if I'm being taxed for it. Money gained from this SCAM does not go to benefit the whole community just the Islamic community. If someone wants halal info about a product, they should look up the manufacturer and speak to them about it!

OMFG! You are sorely mistaken if you...

OMFG! You are sorely mistaken if you think halal slaughter is anything but a barbaric, terrifying, agonising and prolonged death. To say these animals do not feel a thing is wrong. I suggest you look at some footage of so-called islamic slaughter in Kuwait or Indonesia. Or see how Pakistan recently dealt with thousands of unwanted sheep by clubbing them to death (the lucky ones) or burying them alive! The so-called Islamic guidelines of halal slaughter are a joke and not adheared to. So, in actual fact what most muslims think is halal meat is actually haram.

If Muslims know of a wise grocery store in the area that is willing to serve ALL of its customers, they'll carry halal foods just like they carry kosher foods and the Muslims will ensure that they do not "lose business" or "go out of business".

You're a dirty liar. Halal certification is a SCAM but it appears you do not even understand what it is! There is no benefit for anyone except the halal authorities (muslims) who profit from this scam! I know the difference between halal and haram but it appears most muslims couldn't give a shit or they wouldn't eat factory farmed animals! Please tell me, where in the Koran does it state that food must be halal certified??? Also, please tell me how a product instantly becomes 'healthier' simply by paying for a halal logo on the packaging???

All forms of Animal Slaughter are torture, mutilation and horrific murder. The Judaic, Kosher method of slaughter is very similar to the mentally sick Halal method.
In my view and the view of the animals, all methods of torture and killing Animals is Barbaric and Mentally Sick. The People that own, run and kill the Animals are sick.
I stopped eating all Animals for the above reason 35 Years ago and would never return to it.

Please do SOME research. You'll find that a vast majority of the "info" revealed in this written petition to be false AND misleading. As I've asked before, no one here seems to be "up in arms" over the same/similar kosher foods that have been in groceries/supermarkets for years, which also costs the grocers more to stock in their store than non-kosher/non-halal products.

At best, this petition is hypocritical. At worst, as I've already stated, it is false & misleading.
