What’s Ireland Eating?

What are we eating? How is it made? What is it doing to us? Who is profiting most from its sale?

The first documentary in the series was broadcast in May 2011 on RTE1 but you can watch it Part 1 and Part 2 here again. 

What’s Ireland Eating 2

We explored the link between obesity and cancer in the second programme. As well as how the food industry cunningly exploits our greatest psychological weaknesses.

Crimecall

I got properly punked by my producers who faked a bag snatch to see would I be able to describe the mugger. They didn’t expect my slightly ridiculous have-a-go-hero response.

    Hallo

    I would like to highlight something what bothers me, and I believe it would bother 95% population if they would be aware.

    I presume, that you don’t know, that 90% of Chicken (precooked, cooked) consumed in Ireland is Halal.

    If you don’t know, what halal is please see definition below:

    HALAL Slaughter – (of an animal or its meat) slaughtered or prepared in the manner prescribed by Islamic law.

    90% of take Away, hot deli counters, pizza chains, cafes, garage stations, canteens, hotels etc serves coated chicken prepared/produced in Asia (Thailand, China), Southern America (Brazil) – all imported food is HALAL.

    50% of butchers in Ireland ( butchers which have frozen pre packed food )offers imported HALAL products.

    Halal sign/symbol is pre-printed on every bag/box. I do believe, people don’t read labels, don’t understand what HALAL is.

    Big percentage of fresh raw chicken is HALAL as well. Restaurants purchasing HALAL raw material and preparing meals using meat prepared for ethnic market.

    Should be our right to know, if we eat HALAL or not?

    Should it be very clear sign stating, that we serves here HALAL food?

    Its nothing wrong with HALAL food if somebody don’t mind ritual Islamic law slaughter, but I believe it should be very clearly stated in menus, windows, websites etc – WE SERVE HALAL FOOD HERE.

    Would you agree?

    At the moment vast amount of chicken is being sold under radar.

    If you want to check, if I’m right, please go visit:

    Your Local Take Away’s ( ask them to show you bag from where chicken you ordered is coming from) there should be origin and HALAL sign stamped

    Your Local Hot Deli Counter (do same as above)

    Your Local Garage station – do same as above

    Your local Pizza chain – do same as above

    Your local canteen – do same as above

    What I can guarantee is, if you will visit 10 places 9 of them will be serving HALAL food ( Goujons (Breaded, Battered, Hot and Spicy), Breaded Breast, Hot and Spicy Breast, Southern Fry Breast, Bites etc).

    Ask customers, if they know, that they are consuming chicken slaughter with Islamic law (many people believe, that animals suffer much more when slaughtered HALAL).

    Do you think public deserves to know, if they are consuming HALAL Food?

    What went wrong, that non Islamic country is eating HALAL Chicken?

    Pass this message to your friends.

    Say about this on FB, Tweeter…

    If you have any questions, please come back to me. Best to contact me is via email.

    Kind Regards

    Dario
