UAE royals attend UK halal export talks

Country/Region: Europe, United Kingdom

Royal guests from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have visited the UK to discuss ways of boosting halal meat exports to the Middle East.

The move to generate interest in the Middle East market comes after the UAE lifted a ban on British meat exports following outbreaks of foot and mouth disease in 2001, which had a devastating impact on the country's agriculture and economy.

The talks were set up by Eblex, England's levy board in UK lamb and beef. The Al Mualla ruling family and UAE trade representatives met the Eblex halal steering committee at Hijaz College Islamic University in Nuneaton to determine whether halal practices in Britain are compliant with UAE standards.

Eblex director, Nick Allen said:

We've realised the halal sector is quite important to us and we're now looking at exports abroad which we haven't done before. For the first time in ten years we're looking to make a sustainable profit. It will make the whole industry thrive and it's really good for the economy.

With one-third of Britain's lamb being exported, exports to the Middle East could replicate New Zealand's halal boom of the late 1980s, when the country's halal industry was fuelled by big contracts with Middle Eastern countries. The Southland Times this week reported that the annual value of the New Zealand halal industry was estimated to be about 800m NZ dollars, including $250m in meat and $400m in dairy products.

    • Dear Lord Jesus, we pray for freedom for the thousands of Eritrean Christian refugees who have fled from escalating anti-Christian persecution in their home country, and are being detained in prisons in Egypt. You said that You had been sent to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and to set the oppressed free. We especially ask your healing for women and men who have been raped in prison, and for your grace for those who have been kept chained for months, suffering hunger, torture and abuse. Please free these faithful ones, who suffer for Your Name. (Luke 4:18,21) Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed 4 hours ago

    • Praise God for the continued Christian presence in northern Mali, despite the apparent desire of jihadists to wipe it out. Most of the Christians who had fled the region when Islamist radicals took control in 2012 have now returned to their homes, after French troops ousted the Islamists. Many church buildings were desecrated, looted or severely damaged, but the Christians are determined to resume their ministries. Pray for their protection.

    • Continue to pray for church leaders in Christian-majority Burundi that they may have wisdom in responding to the unfamiliar situation of political restriction by their own government. A new law passed in August requires each church to have at least 500 members and a proper building; congregations were given a year to comply. Pray that religious liberty will be maintained in Burundi, both for Christians and for the small minorities who follow other religions. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Wed, Dec 2014 00:00

    • Heavenly Father, we pray to you for our Christian brothers and sisters in north-eastern Nigeria, who are so vulnerable in the face of attacks by Boko Haram militants. We remember especially those who used to live in Shani, in Borno state, until their town was raided by Boko Haram on 29 November. We cry out to You to intervene and bring an end to the murderous attacks by Boko Haram. We pray for all the thousands of Nigerian Christians who have suffered in similar attacks that they will not lose hope or faith in You, but will know Your peace which passes understanding.

    • “If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also,” said the Lord Jesus. (John 15:20). Let us not forget our brothers and sisters who suffer daily because of their faithfulness to Christ and help them with our prayers (Philippians 1:19). Pray that they may take comfort in the words of the Lord Jesus, knowing that He understands what they are enduring for His Name. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Mon, Dec 2014 00:00
