There is a free app available that identifies companies who are paying halal fees. I have used it and it works. By scanning the bar code of any product with your phone camera it will tell you whether the manufacturer of that product is halal certified or not.
I don’t believe it identifies whether the specific product is certified or not, but it identifies the manufacturer as being certified… and that’s where you can really hurt companies that support the scam.
It took me just a minute to go through everything in the pantry, I was stunned and I will never enter any shop again without it. And I want the shop owner to see me using it.
Warning! It appears not to work on older model phones and Kirralie of halalchoices.com.au will have an improved version out soon.
This free app is called “buycott”.
