    Might be a good idea to avoid Australian beef and lamb - although I love
    lamb, I will try to avoid meat from producers or abbattoirs that "respect
    the laws of Islam".


    Australian halal meat brand goes global
    October 10, 2008

    A HALAL brand developed last year by Meat & Livestock Australia for use in
    the Middle East red meat market will now be sold around the world.

    MLA said the brand is set to appear with Australian red meat sold in
    Islamic countries around the world.

    MLAAEs Middle East regional manager, Ian Ross, said 28 percent of the
    world's population is Muslim and most lived in countries with growing economies.

    "It's vital the Australian red meat industry positions itself in the best possible way to supply these important markets," Mr Ross said.

    "The Halal brand shows that the Australian red meat industry is culturally aware and that we respect the laws of Islam.

    "Australia is the only country in the world with a globally-endorsed
    and certified Halal brand underpinned by government legislation."
