HMA Code on Meat Products Packaging

What does the HMA code mean on meat products packaging?


You may have come across a false rumour circulating online suggesting that the product code HMA on some Asda meat products stands for the Halal Monitoring Authority or Halal Meat Authority.

Our own label halal meat is very clearly labelled as halal, so our customers can make an informed choice when purchasing their meat.

HMA is a product code which refers to the different sites of our suppliers. All our Asda branded products contain different combinations of letters that determine where a product is supplied from. This has no connection with halal meat.
