The exemption to slaughter animals without prior stunning extends only to the Islamic and Jewish faiths.
The FSA estimated that in 2018 25% of sheep, 1% of cattle and 10% of meat chickens were slaughtered without prior stunning. As an organisation that values compassion and understanding, we respect everyone’s right to their own beliefs. However, we will never compromise on our mission to protect the welfare of animals and advocate that all animals must be slaughtered through a humane method with prior stunning.
