Sheffield home to three halal-only Subway stores

Have your say

Three Subway stores in Sheffield and one in Rotherham serve exclusively halal meat, it has been revealed.

The sandwich shops in London Road, at Valley Centertainment and at the BP garage in Greenland Road, Darnall, serve only halal meat, with pork swapped for turkey, as does the branch in Rotherham High Street – four of 185 across the country.

A spokesman for the chain said stores began offering halal-only in 2007 ‘to ensure population demographic is taken into account when new store openings are considered’.

It also stressed the chain complies with EU laws and animals are stunned before slaughter.
