We respect the fact that some religious communities want to eat food produced in accordance with their beliefs and sell branded halal and kosher products where there is strong customer demand. It's clear from the labelling that these products are halal or kosher.

Customers who do not wish to purchase halal or kosher products can choose Morrisons branded fresh meat in full confidence that all animals are stunned and no prayer is read at slaughter. The same applies to all of the meat sold from our in-store butchers counters.

All Morrisons-branded fresh meat is British, along with all of the meat sold from our in-store butchers counters. Uniquely, the majority is processed at our own abattoirs, giving us unrivalled control over provenance and quality.

Customers want to know that animals are treated well, which is why we were the first retailer to put CCTV in its abattoirs to reassure shoppers of good welfare practice at slaughter.
