Karma Free Pizza Company opens UK's first commercial slaughter free restaurant in Rayner Lane

A BROTHER and sister claim to have opened Britain’s first commercial restaurant offering slaughter free cheese.

The Karma Free Pizza Company, in Alexandra Avenue, Rayners Lane, only buys its products from farms where the animals are not bred for slaughter or artificially inseminated.

Saloni Ben-Belaid, 38, of High Street, Weald, started the business with her brother Shyam Raithatha, 31, of Rosslyn Crescent, Harrow town centre.

She said: “We’ve got no catering background but we are foodies and we know people need to eat healthily. We’ve got purely quality ingredients in our food.

“We use organic produce when we can and it’s a very healthy fast food. We’ve got a very helpful karma free expience.”

Ms Ben-Belaid said she feels happier allowing her son Arjun, 15, to eat it knowing the food contains healthy ingredients.

Bhaktivedanta Manor, a Hare Krishna temple outside Watford, also produces slaughter free dairy products but not in a commercial setting.

I wish this business the very best of luck. But I really don't think Rayners Lane needs another food outlet. The whole area is satrting to look like one big Asian food court.

What tosh! Sounds like marketing spin to me. BTW you don't need to slaughter animals in order to produce dairy products.

Rani, in answer to your ignorance.
If they are getting slaughter free milk and using it for their cheese...it can only be a good thing.

Have you ever tried getting milk from a dead cow?
It's not guaranteed that the cow will not be slaughtered months down the line. Surely you could only sell it as slaughter free once the cow has died naturally.

The idea of slaughter free farming is that the cow will not be killed in the future once it stops giving milk and any calves born are weaned naturally rather than torn away from their mothers and are not slaughtered.
If the farmer has given this guarantee and been certified...than is it not slaughter free and can it not be marketed as slaughter free?
Anyway, I paid this restaurant a visit last night...the brother was there and was happy to answer any questions. I was satisfied by his answers.
