Hello,

We started this petition for the rights of Muslims living in the United Kingdom. We, the Muslim community, face a daily challenging while shopping for our eatables. Just as there are labels for Vegetarian and Vegan food items on the packaging, we request that a label for Halal food also be introduced.

As many of you know, Muslims do not consume pork, alcohol, or any food item derived from these. It is often tiresome to go through a long list of ingredients to ensure food items meet our dietary requirements. Further, sometimes the information is not clear.

As such, we would greatly appreciate if producers start labelling items that are Halal. The Muslim community will be happy to purchase their foods from any producer if this ease of access is introduced. Currently, Muslims prefer to shop from local Halal superstores; the introduction of the Halal label will benefit both consumers and producers.

Additionally, it would also be of benefit if drug authorities also consider the same. Muslims are allowed to use life-saving medication but there are many more drugs that will be easily accessible for the Muslim community if the Halal label is introduced.
