Iceland is a British supermarket which stocks a range of frozen food, pre-prepared meals and produces such as meat and dairy. Iceland was the first UK supermarket to remove artificial flavourings and colours as well as non-essential preservatives from own branded products. In the 1990s, the supermarket also led the way in banning mechanically recovered meat from own brand products. Later in that decade, Iceland banned genetically modified ingredients from products and removed trans-fats in 2006.
Iceland only works with trusted suppliers in order to ensure that the food that the store sells is high quality and tastes great, whilst remaining at an affordable price. All food is subject to rigorous testing processes to make sure that they meet the high standards set by the company.

Are Iceland’s foods Halal?

What Iceland foods are free on Slimming World?
Iceland has a great range of syn free slimming world products. They include chicken sausages, beef burgers, sweet potato curry, chicken tikka masala, Singapore noodles, pork sausages and much more. The range is clearly labelled as Slimming World and lists the ingredients clearly.
Iceland was first founded back in 1969, by Malcolm Walker and his business partner Peter Hinchcliffe. The twosome opened their first store in Shropshire, investing £59 in one month’s rent. The name Iceland was chosen because Malcolm was friends with the Icelandic Prime Minister. Walker and Hinchcliffe were employees of Woolworths when they first launched the store and were promptly fired when their employers discovered their sideline.
Today, the Iceland headquarters can be found in Deeside, Wales. It’s estimated that the company has a 1.8% share of the grocery market.
