Telegraaf reports that halal foods are gaining Dutch shelf-space in the Netherlands. The halal food includes pork-free snacks such as sausages and meatballs in which the meat is processed according to Islamic law. Manufacturer Mekkafood from Venlo drove up production 25% this year, to 7,800 tons of halal meat. Producers note demand for halal products among non-Muslims, including popular Turkish pizzas, but note that the increase in the total number of Muslims also plays a role.
