Halal Festival

Love food?
Love Halal food?
Then you’ll love Halal Festival

Halal Festival is a celebration of the world’s most delicious Halal food & drink with over 100 international exhibitors, plus shopping and entertainment.

What is Halal? In short, the word Halal, in Arabic, means permitted or lawful. Halal foods are foods that are allowed under Islamic dietary guidelines. Muslims cannot consume the following foods Pork, animals that were dead prior to slaughtering, animals not slaughtered properly or not slaughtered in the name of Allah, blood and blood by-products, alcohol, carnivorous animals, birds of prey, land animals without external ears as these are prohibited foods and ingredients are called haram, meaning forbidden in Arabic. All animals have to be slaughtered in a humane way. As all Muslims are taught through the Qu’ran that all animals should all be treated with respect and be well cared for. Therefore the goal in halal style butchery is to slaughter the animal in a manner which will limit the amount of pain the animal will endure. When any animal is slaughtered, the jugular vein is cut and the blood is allowed to drain from the animal. This practice is done because Muslims are prohibited from consuming animal blood. Muslim population has grown in the UK over the decades and now it is more easier to find Halal.

    What a food filled day I had recently with LovePopUpsLondon.com!

    First off, there were so many food stalls to choose from, it was incredible! So many so that you didn’t mind it being an alcohol free event (obviously). There was everything including burgers, Mexican, salads and more. Not only food stalls were in attendance, but many producers of halal certified products were displaying what they offer.
