Marks & Spencer in halal first with new food range

M&S has launched an own-brand Halal food range

Marks & Spencer has become the first major UK retailer to launch a range of halal own-brand prepared meals.

Marks & Spencer told Retail Week that the six-item range, which will go on sale next week in 36 branches and in stores run by international franchise partner Al-Futtaim in markets such as Singapore and Dubai, was developed in response to the growing demand for halal food.

The range, certified by the Halal Food Authority, includes versions of some of M&S’ most popular meals such as chicken arrabbiata and chicken tikka masala.
