HCL was established in April 2013 to Serve the Muslim Ummah for consultation and counsel in conformity with Islamic shari’ah rules on all aspects of “Halal”, which matter in a Muslim’s daily life. For example, on earnings, attire, inheritance, marriages, births, foods, meat, poultry and its provision, intensive farming and usage of science and technology in general and in the food industry in particular. HCL is one of the UK’s most recognised HALAL accreditation bodies, and its name and reputation are renowned within Islamic councils throughout the world.
The Soil Association are the UK’s leading membership charity campaigning for healthy, humane, organic and sustainable food. Organic standards put animal welfare first. As well as requiring that animals are genuinely free range, organic standards cover living conditions, food quality, the use of antibiotics and hormones, as well as transport and slaughter. These standards mean that animals raised in organic systems enjoy the very highest welfare standards of farmed animals. A healthy animal is better able to resist disease than a stressed one. Organic livestock farming aims to prevent the disease from occurring by promoting health. This is achieved through appropriate diet, high welfare standards for housing, amount of housing space for each animal, and taking measures to reduce stress.
