Halal means more halal food:

Halal is most commonly used to define permissable foods, but the term is much broader. Halal means “permissable” foods or actions, and is the opposite of haram, unlawful acts. Muhammad taught Muslims have no right to kill any animal unless permitted by God. It is only with God’s permission (to whom all creatures belong) that certain types of animals can be slaughtered for human consumption. Only herbivorous animals can be slaughtered to be eaten (e.g. cows, sheep, chicken and birds that eat no flesh).

Please note that pigs are omnivorous animals that feed on plants and animals. Eating ham or pork is forbidden in Islam and Judaism
