Shake Shack Singapore has confirmed that they will not be halal-certified
Only the Dubai branch is currently halal.
In a report by Channel News Asia, a spokesperson of Shake Shack Singapore has confirmed that the outlet which will be opening at Jewel Changi Airport will not be halal-certified.
Shake Shack first opened in 2004 in New York, and has expanded to more than 180 locations in the United States, with more than 70 locations worldwide, including London, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Dubai, Tokyo, Moscow and Seoul, but only the outlet in Dubai is halal. All meat produced in or imported to the UAE must be Halal (unless its clearly marked as Haram). Any restaurant that produces non-Halal meat options must by law use a separate kitchen to avoid contamination.
Fast food chain A&W has mentioned their intentions to get a Halal-Certification in Singapore after being absent for more than 15 years.
Spanning seven floors, Jewel Changi Airport will offer retail, dining and leisure offerings, as well as a hotel when it opens next year.
