Back in 2014 Cadbury made its Halal bed. Now it must lie in it.



I no longer buy Cadbury products because of their Halal certification which I believe is a financial rort. I used to enjoy their chocolate before they went Halal. Recently I found out that back in 2014 not only were they Halal but they actually changed a recipe in order to gain Halal certification. As a result they were boycotted by furious customers who said that they had ruined the taste of a popular brand. They also complained that Cadbury had removed certification symbols from product packaging to hide the Halal symbol from their customers.

After all that fuss and bother you would think that Cadbury back in 2014 would have had an appreciative and loyal Muslim customer base both overseas and at home, but you would be wrong. Cadbury paid lots of the money to become Halal certified and for ongoing certification; there is no doubt about that. The certifiers made lots of money from it but there was one little problem with the chocolate…

From 2014:

It was first reported in the US this week that Cadbury is in real trouble with its export market. After having paid the Indonesian Halal Certification mob the correct protection money, the Malaysian Health Ministry has found traces of pork DNA in its products. All hell has broken loose.

Now I understand that porcine fat is used in many foods, including chocolate and ice cream, where a smooth “texture” is needed but poor Cadbury (which is very quiet about its certification) is copping it from all Islamic quarters.
Cadbury has agreed to recall all pork “tainted” items from stores overseas, a massive undertaking amid cries of foul play. More than 20 Muslim groups have called for a boycott on all Cadbury’s products, saying that a holy war needs to be waged against the confectionary giant for attempting to “weaken” Muslims.

At a news conference called to announce the boycotts an hysterical Malay woman yelled, “Will Cadbury wash away the tainted blood in our veins? I want to wash away the tainted blood of my children who have consumed the chocolates… how will money even compensate for that?”
Perkasa Selangor chief, Abu Bakar Yahya told reporters:
“They (Cadbury) have betrayed us Muslims by putting ‘haram’ elements through the foods we consume in our body, to weaken us Muslims.
“That is why Muslims are weak, divided… because the person eats pork it is difficult to guide him to the right path.
“When the day of judgment comes, that person will be wearing a pig-face because of what he has eaten. We need to unite, we must declare jihad!”

We could be in for some fun and games here because all Australian halal certified food manufacturers use pig fat in at least some items.
Certifiers here and in Indonesia couldn’t give a damn about compliance, they are too busy warring over the lucrative halal scam estimated to be worth almost $1 trillion world-wide.
But Islamic consumers are now likely to turn on the certifiers who say they conduct a vigorous compliance regime on all food chains… they don’t, they never have. They just collect the money.

The Indonesian Council of Ulama, MUI, (which also orders Fatwa rulings) is a Mafia style body that runs the certifying protection racket throughout much of Asia, forcing Australian companies to pay outrageous amounts (up to $30,000) to have their food certified as halal.
But MUI has opposition, “Australian Halal Food Services” (AHFS) and this mob has been undercutting MUI. Now MUI is banning Australian export of all foods, including meat, from Australian companies found dealing with AHFS.

As a result many Aussie companies have removed the halal logo from their products but still pay the protection money.
It’s almost impossible to get any company to discuss what’s going on, and for good reason.
When asked to comment, the Dept of Trade said, “The Australian Government values our close relationship with MUI and will continue to work together with them to overcome issues that affect mutually beneficial trade….”.
