Halal Catering London

Halal Catering in London

As a concoction of cultures, one is spoiled for choice in terms of catering options in London. But when feeding the masses, extra attention is required. People dine in many different ways, and it is not uncommon to receive a guest with dietary requirements. And when it comes to religious dietaries, one of the biggest food requirements, both in London and overseas, is halal.

“Halal” is any action or behaviour permissible in Islam, including what types of meat and methods of preparation are acceptable. Halal meat is a vital part of the Muslim faith. It refers to the way animals are killed for consumption and using appropriate and humane processes.

Planning a corporate event? Organising a low-key office party? Or simply ordering in a team lunch for the office? London definitely has you covered with its wealth of halal catering options.

CATERWINGS halal food options in London

Most cuisines from predominately Muslim countries already use halal meat. But regardless of their types of food, more and more London restaurants and caterers are also adopting this practice. This means a much more simplified process when placing catering orders.

For extra convenience, CATERWINGS points you in the right direction via food filters and cuisine guidance. Also look out for our handy legends on caterer menus highlighting which dishes are halal.

For example, the Famous Marinated Grilled Chicken from Assenheim's 56. And the BBQ Grilled Chicken Breast with Wild Rice from King's Kitchen. And Wok To Walk's Jasmine rice, chicken, red onions & Tokyo sauce.

The history of Halal food in London

The first eaters of halal food arrived in the form of Bengali and Yemeni sailors from the 19th century. More Muslims flocked to London from the Indian sub-continent to serve in the British Indian Army in the First and Second World Wars. This influx, especially during the 1960s, increased the demand for halal food, which was entirely new for western businesses.

Worried about forbidden food, many Muslim immigrants chose to buy their meats from Jewish butchers. This resulted in many Islamic butcher shops opening in London during the 1970s, with a lot being family owned.

In the 1990s, various food crises became known, including foot-and-mouth disease and mad cow disease. Public pressure from both Muslim- and western communities demanded the improvement of western meat. That’s when western abattoirs started adopting proper equipment to create halal meat. In turn, this led to the introduction of certification, informing Muslims which providers were safe to support.
