Burger King Goes Halal In France

An American fast food chain is taking advantage of the growing Muslim population in France by replacing all pork and bacon products from its menu with halal-certified beef and chicken.

Burger King is going after the 5-million strong Muslim consumers in France, the country with the biggest Muslim population in Europe, WND reported.

    If it works, it’s a brilliant decision; otherwise they’ve shut off 80% of their intended customers.

      Minicapt, I personally think it a crap business decision – they should have tried a specific halal area within an existing facility, with separate and distinct food storage, cooking, and Mohemmadan staff to serve the Mohammedans. Then, they could assess the demand for halal fast food.

      Going with a complete capitulation is simply going to alienate their consumer base.

      PS, at the bloodnut, I always went “Kaboom”. Cheers!

        Then again, it provides Security Services with a distinct target in which to plant the ptomaine or even something deadlier. Mosques are good at assembling large groups is muslims as well, facilitating military takeouts when the time comes.

        They could open two outlets next door to each other, then see which one survives.

      The daytime trade during Ramadan will be slow to non-existent, though.

      But we’re are over-told how these Muslim invaders are “just like us” except when they aren’t, ever.

    I certainly do hope that the non Halal market boycott Burger King

    • Justin St.Denis

      Most people with taste buds avoid Burger King. My youngest worked at a BK for a summer. He says you do not want to know what you don’t know about Burger King.

  • Denis

    well, this is another fast food establishment I will be boycotting from now on.

      I never go to Burger King, and I will continue to – is this a boycott? – IT IS NOW

    The Pizza Pizza on Yonge Street south of Steeles in Toronto offers halal pepperoni.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Especially if you want actually edible food. PIZZA PIZZA has “secrets” you don’t want to know about if you ordered from them at any point since 1990. Disgusting that they can get away with what they get away with. We have four adult children who have NEVER sampled PIZZA PIZZA products because they KNOW about the operation. Do some research. I don’t want to get BCF in trouble with a big conglomerate, but you REALLY need to learn about what you are eating.

    Er, isn’t halal cert a fund raising scam for “musloon militants”?
    Isn’t LeRoi Burgare / Thortoons “owned” by a Brazillion front deeply in hock to Emperor Barry’s buddy, what’s his name, the oil unit trains guy?
    Small world.

    Ezra posted a good show, over at Rebel Media a day or so ago, about how to revive conservative lobbying. One area to improve is to develop a good boycotting system. We need a good information clearance system about whom and what to boycott. Which corporations sell halal foods? In Frace, with a strong National Front party, one would think they would fight Burger King with an effective boycott. But what about here? I know enough boycott Campbell’s soup, but this is not due to any good conservative media campaign. How many conservatives know about Campbell’s soup?

      a start

    Will pork-fuelled buses be haram?
    A third of London’s buses will run on fuel made from meat from next year, transport bosses have revealed.
    By March, 3,000 of the capital’s 8,900 buses will use B20 green diesel, which is blended with waste from the meat industry.
    All the mahometans of London will be breathing pork exhaust.

    I’m glad I don’t eat at burger king.

    In a related story, I was at the supermarket today. Someone had placed a package of Johnsonville pure pork brats in with the halal chicken.:)

      Noo. It wasn’t me. Some of my best work is done at No Frills. Usually the pre-cooked bacon.

  • Clink9

    Not been back to BK since the early nineties when our 5 year old girl cut her head open on the indoor playroom slide.

    The employees at the time and their head office couldn’t have been more useless.

    Part of the money paid to be |Certified |Halal goes to support the |Islamic Terrorists. So in essence, if you buy Halal, you support Terrorists.
