The Bendigo Standard is proud to announce it has now become digitally Halal certified and gluten-free. We are honoured to receive such important credentials.

We promise to use animals in our articles that are permissible to consume under Sharia law including alcohol and pork. We also promise not to mention bread or gluten based products in our articles.

We know some may not agree with our decision but we believe its the right thing to do in promoting acceptance and unity.

Thank you.
