Australia’s biggest fast food chains are increasingly selling halal food in a bid to win over Muslim customers. Kentucky Fried Chicken has even stopped serving pork-based bacon altogether in parts of Sydney and Melbourne where there’s a sizable Islamic population. McDonald’s is also catering for Muslim customers, by halal certifying 21 restaurants in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Canberra.
Mogaznews A much smaller Australian-owned rival, Red Rooster, this week confirmed to Daily Mail Australia it was test-marketing halal gravy with a view to possibly rolling it out nationally.
Muslims make up just 2.6 per cent of Australia’s population but in parts of Sydney, they are a majority, making 59 per cent of Lakemba residents.
In this suburb with a mosque, McDonald’s runs a halal-certified restaurant that keeps pork-based bacon separate from other foods.
Nationally, the world’s biggest fast food chain has 21 halal-certified restaurants, 12 of which are in Sydney, including in the heavily Muslim suburbs of Greenacre and Punchbowl, where Islam was practised by 42 per cent and 36 per cent of residents during the 2016 Census.

One of Australia’s biggest roast chicken restaurant chains is test-marketing a halal gravy as it chases the Muslim dollar in areas where the Islamic population is surging.
Red Rooster’s traditional gravy sold at its 360 stores contains pork fat and has been a popular sauce to put on the chicken and chips since the company began in 1972.
From the Pickering Post: What was once limited to barbarically-slaughtered meat, meat has now crept into many other products, including non foods items to basic services, in what has been described as ‘Shariah creep’. The Government is also losing the same amount in company tax deductions and very few certifiers pay tax as it is claimed to be a religious related income.
The certifiers have now got our kids’ kindergarten canteens in their sights with the intent to halal certify every school canteen in the nation by 2018. Even our national airline QANTAS is halal accredited, requiring all food suppliers be halal certified.
Opportunistic moneymen have identified a gap in the market where ‘infidel idiots’ are primed for exploitation. But Australians in their millions are now looking very, very closely at that funny little symbol with the squiggly lines on their supermarket items and restaurant menus.
Australia’s best known household brands are among hundreds of food items, now funding halal certification schemes to the benefit of Islamic agenda and personal wealth by fortune hunters.
