Halal chicken factory in court for bakery equipment misuse

Manchester County Court has ordered Bolton Halal Chicken factory to stop using bread baskets and other equipment belonging to Bakers Basco and its membership, in addition to paying £3,000 in costs.

According to the court order, Bolton Halal Chicken and its directors, Sajid Ebrahim Dalal and Yusuf Mohamed, could face being held in contempt of court and be liable to a fine or imprisonment, if they fail to obey the decision, along with having their assets seized.

The legal action came after the company was found to be using equipment owned by Bakers Basco and its membership, which is designed for the “sole purpose of transporting bread and other bakery products”.

Steve Millward, general manager at Bakers Basco, said: “Our baskets and dollies are designed for one sole purpose and that is to transport bread safely, cost-effectively and in an environmentally-friendly way. When people divert them for their own use, it not only has a knock-on effect on the bakers that pay to licence them but also on retailers and, at the end of the day, Joe Public, all of whom end up footing the bill for the actions of a small minority.”
