Australia: Red Rooster restaurant chain goes halal

One of Australia’s biggest roast chicken restaurant chains is trialling a halal gravy as it chases the Muslim dollar in areas where the Islamic population is surging.

Red Rooster’s traditional gravy sold at its 360 stores contains pork fat and has been a popular sauce to put on the chicken and chips since the company began in 1972.

The chicken chain’s Bass Hill store in south-west Sydney has been trailling halal gravy for two weeks – in a suburb where 28 per cent of residents are Muslim.

Company spokeswoman Lisa Owen told Daily Mail Australia Red Rooster was reviewing its existing gravy containing pork.

‘This is a trial that will roll out across our stores,’ Ms Owen said.

Should the trial prove successful after a year, Red Rooster would consider offering traditional gravy and halal gravy choices.

‘If the product is deemed successful it will be rolled out across the restaurant network,’ Ms Owen said.

It doesn’t have any outlets in Sydney’s affluent areas such as the North Shore or the eastern suburbs.

The chain, however, does have a store at Lakemba, in south-west Sydney, where 59 per cent of residents are Muslim.

  1. “Should the trial prove successful after a year, Red Rooster would consider offering traditional gravy and halal gravy choices.”
    Ha ha, yeah right !!!
    I’d bet ya a chicken & biscuit dinner that one year from today Red Rooster will only be offering the “Sharia Compliant” PC gravy.
    The Ozzie Infidels will be told it was just too cost prohibitive to stock both types, when the corporate fear of lawsuits by Muslims who will claim they were given the wrong gravy is the real reason.

  2. When you go halal, you just go. Unless they’re making bombs in the back room, there won’t be enough business to pay the bills.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
