No more kosher and halal meat: in Flanders it is no longer allowed to slaughter according to religious regulations. It is allowed in the capital.

Flanders prohibits ritual Jewish and Muslim slaughtering. From September 2019, this regulation will also apply to the Belgian region of Wallonia. Only in Brussels will ritual slaughter be allowed, reports the “Stern”.

In Germany, ritual slaughter is prohibited. However, there are exceptions. In Denmark, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Sweden and Slovenia it is completely forbidden, according to the “Stern”.
