Just days ago I posted about a Domino's Pizzeria in the UK which had banned all pork products. The reason was to cater to its Islamic customers, while showing no concern for its non-Muslim customers. Now we have a UK Subway sandwich shop doing the same thing. Catering to a group of people who want to impose their religion on the non-Muslim world is OK though, because it is happening through the free market....(sarcasm alert).
Croydon Subway goes halal
Saturday 14th February 2009
Due to customer demand, a subway store in Thornton Heath will be completely halal from Monday.
The popular sandwich chain will serve a range of certified halal meats which are prepared in accordance with halal guidelines from Monday 16.
Rachel Shaw, who holds the franchise for the fast food outlet, said: “I am really pleased to have converted the Thornton Heath Subway outlet into halal.
“It now offers customers halal Subs that are fresh, made-to-order and just the way they like them.
"I decided to convert due to popular demand from our customers.
“Subway aims to be at the heart of the community, and we are happy to offer subs that everyone can enjoy.
"It was our objective to ensure the taste of the halal products matches the taste of the Subway stores gold standard meats.”
