“Woolworths is appalled by this incident.

Placing a pigs head in our store is unacceptable and offensive to our employees and customers, particularly Jewish and Muslim employees and customers.

We are investigating this incident and we will consider our options to prevent such distasteful protests in our stores.

We will destroy any Halaal products that may be affected and take any other appropriate measures. There were no Kosher food products on the affected shelf.

The incident is isolated to our Fort Road store in Sea Point only.”

Paula Disberry, Group Director – Retail Operations
