May 21, 2012 (LBT) – Yaseen’s Computerized Graphics, one of the largest suppliers of labels to the apparel industry has invested over Rs. 200 million to diversify to the cosmetic segment. Director Marketing, Yaseen’s, Hiran S. B. Wijesinghe said they diversified to the cosmetic market since they saw an opening for quality and affordable foreign products. “With the Sri Lankan living standards on the increase and people looking for better things in life, we found out after extensive market study that there is a high demand for high quality cosmetic products. “This is the reason we tied up with the Turkey Cosmetic manufacturer, Farmasi to launch their product range in Sri Lanka,” he said.

Behalal comments: It was a matter of time when this (“excessive”) raised it’s head as another attempt to control the production of halal and kosher meat from religious slaughter methods. The over production is from pre-stunning methods which produce much higher yields. Assumptions have been drawn that halal means religious when this is not the case in practise.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) who conducted a survey into animal welfare in slaughterhouses in September said its own figures showed most animals were stunned before being killed. A spokesman said: “The results indicate that the number of animals not stunned prior to slaughter is relatively low, accounting for 3% of cattle, 10% of sheep and goats, and 4% of poultry.
“They also show that the majority of animals destined for the halal trade in both the red and white meat sectors are stunned before slaughter.”
The FSA said full details of the survey would be published ahead of a discussion at a board meeting on 22 May and these figures dispel the myth of over production of religious slaughtered meat.
