We have 434 restaurants, 76 of which serve only Halal chicken and 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 rare occasions if there are, for example, issues with supply. However, all of our chickens are packaged, labelled and distributed to their intended restaurant. We continue to look at ways to offer chicken dishes which are guaranteed to be non-Halal.

Who supplies our Halal chicken?
Our Halal chickens are supplied to us by Freemans of Newent. They are authorised by the Islamic Institute of Jurisprudence and are one of the UK’s leading suppliers of Halal chicken.
We are committed to the highest standards and therefore the quality, welfare and health of our chicken is a priority. We ensure that Freemans of Newent 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. Their slaughter process is overseen by Mr. Ali Bham who has been a practising Muslim slaughter man for over 20 years.
All of our Halal products are clearly segregated at our supplier and in our distribution centre. 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
