Issues in Eblex's halal steering group, in part, led the organisation to pull the plug and launch a forum, information from a MeatInfo.co.uk source suggests.
The steering group, which was created in 2010 to help shape the way Eblex works with the halal sector, was disbanded earlier this month and substituted for a forum. A source who worked with the steering group suggested this was because the group was ineffective, due to disagreements being a recurring issue.
"What happened [to the steering group] is that it did not work well as a group of people. Some people tried to undermine other people. Some people in the group were not happy in it," the source said.
