Why doesn't McDonald's offer halal food? 

A spokesperson for the fast food giant has revealed why UK McDonald’s does not offer halal food.

They said: “We have, in fact, conducted a Halal trial in a restaurant in Southall. 

“We learnt that Halal certified food is popular with only a very small percentage of our customers, and to offer it in all our restaurants would require significant changes to our kitchen procedures and supply chain. 

“As a result, we decided against offering Halal food in the U.K. for the time being.”
