 The European Court of Justice ruled that halal meat cannot bear the EU organic farming logo. The Court has taken the stance ritual slaughter – as opposed to slaughter with pre-stunning – does not ‘does not allow the animal’s suffering to be kept to a minimum’. 

The high standard of animal welfare in all locations and at all stages of production is a fundamental standard of organic farming in line with EU Regulation 834/2007 of 28 June 2007 on organic production and labelling of organic products. The latter Regulation demands that ‘any suffering, including mutilation, shall be kept to a minimum during the entire life of the animal, including at the time of slaughter’. The Court argued that the application of pre-stunning is shown to be the least compromising technique for the pain, distress and suffering of slaughtered animals.
