Halal Chicken

Some of our restaurants serve only Halal chicken – these are signposted both in the restaurant and online.

A small proportion of chicken sold in our other restaurants may also be Halal. This may happen on very rare occasions if there are, for example, issues with supply. All of our chickens are packaged, labelled and distributed to their intended restaurant and our suppliers do everything they can to ensure mistakes aren't made.

We recognise selling Halal chicken in non-Halal restaurants isn't ideal for everyone so we're always looking at ways to guarantee the chicken in our non-Halal restaurants continues to be non-Halal during the rare times we may have supply issues.  

Nando’s serves only Halal chicken in the following restaurants:

How do we publicise this?

•    Sign on the entrance of the restaurant
•    On the relevant restaurant page on our website
•    Certificates to confirm the chickens in that restaurant are from accredited factories

Please ask a member of staff at Nando’s if you’re unsure.

Who supplies our Halal chicken?

Our Halal chickens are supplied to us by Shazan Foods Ltd and Freemans of Newent td. They are authorised by the Islamic Institute of Jurisprudence and are both leading suppliers of Halal chicken. 
We’re committed to the highest standards and therefore the quality, welfare and health of our chicken is a priority. Our suppliers follow the strict Red Tractor Farm Assurance Standards. All our chickens are indoor-reared. They are pre-stunned which minimises suffering and fear. The method used is a high frequency stun – this means the chicken is still alive, but unconscious when it is hand slaughtered and blessed by licensed Muslim slaughter men. 

All of our Halal products are clearly segregated at our suppliers and in our distribution centres.  Our Halal serving restaurants are authorised only to receive poultry from our approved distribution centre.  

Why do we serve Halal chicken in selected restaurants?

We always decide which restaurants will serve Halal chicken before it first opens.  We base our decision on a range of criteria, such as:

• Local population
• Type of restaurant
• Potential future openings in the area
• Distance to nearest restaurant serving Halal chicken
• Distribution factors
