FairPrice assures customers proper procedures in place for Halal products; reminds customers not to place non-Halal products in Halal sections
We would like to assure our customers that all our retail staff have been properly trained by a specialised Halal consultant to handle Halal products and there are dedicated sections for displaying Halal meat. All Halal items are also properly sealed and packed to prevent direct contact with non-Halal products. They are also displayed in different sections separated by acrylic dividers from pork-related items. At Halal sections, we also put up customer notices in our stores to inform our customers to handle Halal items with sensitivity by placing them at the dedicated Halal sections.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind customers not to place non-Halal products in Halal sections and also encourage our customers to inform our store personnel should they find non-Halal items placed at dedicated Halal sections.
