Halal choice

Article from Caledonian Connected:

"The refectory is now extending the choice of Halal foods. Served at a special Halal counter, a choice of dishes will be available daily. These will include chicken, lamb and beef dishes as well as vegetarian options.

The service was developed following close collaboration with the International Students’ Society and CUMSA (Caledonian University Muslim Students’ Association). Halal refers to a specific way of preparing meat and is a valuable choice for Muslim staff and students."
