UK: Domino’s Pizza branch bans pork

17-02-2009 | |

A branch of Domino’s Pizza has decided to completely remove pork from its menu.

The branch has decided to go 100% halal in an effort to win more Muslim customers, however, this move has been attacked by some customers.

The pizza chain’s Hall Green branch in Birmingham has stopped selling pizzas with pork products to appeal to the area’s large Muslim population who follow a strict non-pork diet.

Replacement products
According to reports, ingredients such as bacon, ham and pepperoni have been replaced with halal spicy beef sausage, roast and tandoori chicken, halal pepperoni and halal cured turkey, all produced and stored within the Halal Food Authorities guidelines.
