From next week, a range of six Halal Food Authority (HFA) certified prepared meals will roll-out across 36 selected M&S stores. The retailer stated that its product development team has worked with HFA and suppliers to deliver Halal certified versions of its most popular prepared meals, including Chicken Arrabbiata, Chicken & Mushroom Tagliatelle, Chicken & Leek Bake, Chicken Hotpot, Chicken Jalfrezi, and a Chicken Tikka Masala.
In May this year, M&S began stocking a range of Shazans branded Halal chicken products in selected stores. It said that a strong sales response from local customers to these products led to its decision to invest in an own label range. The new M&S Halal prepared meal range has a distinctive orange packaging design and logo and will be stocked alongside Shazans.
