I have been asked by many people regarding the Halal meat that is sold in the supermarkets named above and more.
Normally, people leave HFA to the side and opt for HMC in the branches that offer them, if they do. But there are so many other certified Halal meat and food products that can not easily be verified.
Recently there have been meat and chicken products being sold here with a specific company but when visiting the sites of these suppliers, no mention is made as to who certifies their meat or how they are slaughtered.
There was one company whose name I can't recall which I found out that it was run by Ahle Hadith brothers, Alhumdulillah, but I only found that out by digging a little deeper.
Can you imagine if we dig deeper with the other companies we might just come to find out that there is a Qadyani meat Industry, and if thats the case, then the meat is HARAM.
Recently ASDA were supplying meat and poultry certified by a particular company that was certified by HFA, but I'm not sure if that is still valid.
PLEASE NOTE, NOT ALL HFA PRODUCTS ARE HARAM. HFA PRODUCTS NEED FURTHER INVESTIGATION AS THE MEAT AND CHICKEN COULD WELL BE 100% HALAL
