This will be old news to some of you, but thanks to the contributors at DeenPort, we can be safe in the knowledge that any sheep/lamb meat from New Zealand is halal, as long as it's not from one of the following abattoirs - code indicated on the packaging - ME 80; ME 103; ME 104; ME 108; ME 112; ME 131; ME 132; ME 133. This is regardless of whether a 'halal' mark appears on the packaging or not.

Now before we all run off to our local supermarkets, spare a thought for the local halal butcher who may be more deserving of your custom in the troubled economy...
