Commercial analysis: In Halal Meat Sellers Committee Ltd and another v HMC (UK) Ltd, the court held that a contract was not in restraint of trade where all that the defendant charity had done was to identify conditions of Halal accreditation. A butcher could sign up to the scheme (or not), and if they did so, they had to abide by the accreditation conditions. This was held not to be a contract in restraint of trade.
