What difference does livestock diet, ownership of processing plants, and the method of slaughter have on the end product? Will there ever be a universally accepted definition of halal that consumers will be able to trust? Even better, will there be a recognized authority that can offer certificates verifying halal status? Or will we just keep taking the word of our local Muslim butcher shops?
