Hot off the press !

Post by terra » 18 Jul 2017, 08:48

Just announced today.... Kelloggs and Sanitarium have ceased paying for Halal certification on all of their products.
More food companies may follow this trend.

EDIT: after reading further into this, it seems that it's been going on for a year or so......
so it ain't exactly "hot off the press".
:hhuuuhhhh

About time too.....the same should be done with Kosher certification, the "heart-smart" tick and any other endorsements. Our labelling laws are very strict now and consumers should be able to get the information they need straight off the packet. These payments are just a rip-off that consumers end up paying for.
