Knowledge for better food systems


New blog post: Distancing death: slaughter, welfare and consumption in the British halal meat industry

In this blog post, Hibba Mazhary outlines her research plans on meat consumption and production in the British halal meat sector, including consumer motivations and the relationship that consumers have with animal death. She argues that the 'distancing' of consumers from animal death is particularly interesting in the halal meat sector due to disputes over the method of slaughter, both within the British Muslim community and amongst critics of non-stun slaughter.
