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.
