As with our other ingredient milestones, our team has spent hundreds of hours working with our suppliers to achieve this feat - we are proud of their effort and the positive impact the change will have.

Food FAQs

Are Papa John’s stores or products halal?

When we source our meat, our decisions are based on animal welfare standards, food safety and quality. We do not specify to any of our suppliers to supply us with halal certified meat, and therefore do not position our stores or meat as halal approved. However, whilst we do not select based on halal certification, it is possible that our suppliers' products can be classed as halal and this is true only of our Chicken Topping & Chicken Poppers. Both products are sourced directly from suppliers in Thailand, whose chicken is certified as halal by the religious authorities in Thailand. All our suppliers in Thailand are certified to the Food Safety Standards set by the British Retail Consortium (BRC) and to the Animal Welfare Standard, Genesis GAP. Both are International recognized Food Safety and Animal Welfare standards which our suppliers are audited against annually, by independent auditors.

Whilst these products are certified as halal upon supply, we do not position them or our stores as halal approved. When all of our product reaches our stores, we maintain rigid food hygiene standards throughout food handling areas and all food handlers employed are trained in all areas of good food hygiene practice. We work closely with suppliers to enable up to date and clear labelling of all products and carry out external audits to ensure good kitchen and service practices are maintained. These practices extends to all of our products, we do not treat or prepare halal & non-halal product separately.
