You can read the full statement here:
"The Soho Sandwich Co is a SALSA certified sandwich manufacturer that recognises and understands the HALAL foods manufacturing standard. The Soho Sandwich site is not certified by any Halal certification bodies in the UK but as a business, we enforce a strict manufacturing standard to prevent cross contamination at every stage of the manufacturing process. Systems and procedures are in place and strictly implemented to maintain a high-level of control in the prevention of microbiological and allergen cross contamination in our products. We produce a range of sandwiches that include vegan, vegetarian and meat products. Halal and non-halal meats are handled in our factory. Strict segregation, labelling and product change-over procedures are enforced and risk of cross contact or contamination is prevented effectively. We have partnered with some selected producers of Halal certified chicken which can be found in several our products. The Halal chicken that we receive is supplied on a positive release basis and comes with certification from the manufacturer. In addition, we carry out routine traceability exercises to verify the authenticity of the chicken they supply."
